Thank for the update Drifter, we'll have to compare these to the other wheelsets already on the market...will they more prototypical like FVM's, or will they me more "doesn't matter what they look like long as they're metal" like Atlas. One would think that since this has been talked about since April, and they aren't due out until July 2012 they'd better be good. I mean, 7-8 months seems like an awfully long time to produce a wheel...especially if they've been working on it since April. I would think they could do a whole new freight car with metal wheels in that time...
