    A color photo of this new car is featured in the MTL ad in the inside back cover of the Jan-Feb 2001 issue of N Scale Railroading. A great looking model, for sure. Thanks, MTL.

    The model is shown in (tuscan?) red with white lettering but the accompanying text says the car is black with white lettering.

    Equally interesting is the note on the 6-wheel Buckeye trucks as new product # 1173. These are due to be released separately
    once the flatcar is available.

    These new trucks will be excellent candidates for other heavy duty applications such as steam locomotive tenders, etc.
    Thanks again, MTL.

    Happy Holidays
