    We were out driving on Saturday and my wife spotted "some GO cars with an odd paint scheme". When I finally gat where I could see them (and stop the car) they turned out to be 2 Sounder bi-levels at the back of a freight train.

    Just in case you want to model your deliveries properly, the cars were at the rear of the freight, separated by a freight car and with another freight car behind them. I suspect this may have to do with different brake systems.

    Then I read in Railfan that Sounder is leasing its surplus cars to Virginia!

    I guess we modellers will just have to wait until Athearn comes up with its long promised commuter cars...
