Man, that SP PA is going to be hard to resist. Out of my era, but dang, it sure looks good!

When I say "out of my era," I model 1953, by which time SP was getting the last of their PA/PBs, but the Coast Daylight was still pulled by GS-4s and GS-5s.

But man, are those tempting me!

Those PA's look great.  I'd love to have a D&RGW and an SP set, but I just can't afford everything!  Pity!

Cheers,
Jim

Those covered ore cars will be nice. PA units look nice.

I wish they had not cast the grills into the body of the PBs, it would have been a great starting point to making a D&RGW steam gen. But if Rapido wants to make the steam gen for us RGZ fans, id be a happy guy.

Good point!  I still have an old Athearn PB unit that I carefully sanded the DB off of the roof but it would need alot more mods to make it into the RGZ SG car.

Their Fishbowl bus video is fun to watch.

Those PA's look beefy and chock full of interesting details. I don't need them but I have a feeling their going to be hard to walk away from in the display case of my LHS.
