    I have the six car set plus a few others. These are great though the large size will eat of track space fast. MTH did a great job on the 100 Ton cars and I can say there are few rolling stock like them.

    Yes space eaters for sure. A friend gave me one he converted to 2-Rail. Since he back dated his layout and uses only 40' cars or smaller he didn't have any need for it. A string of them surely would look good.

    "They look good" , that's what my wife said no later than yesterday while on our daily walk here in Montréal we watched the real stuff passing on the Canadian National track just down our street. The 1:1 scale Canadian cereals car looks very very impressive when seen from a 10 yards distance.
    Too bad that I'm modeling the fifties because they would look great on my brewery theme layout.
