    Actually, Moose might go blind with rage at a diesel brand (ALCo) that pretended to look like a steam locomotive, belching smoke and all.

    That's the best thing about an ALCo. I mean other than the bolt rattling in a can sound they make.

    Howdy all,

    After being told that unless there are pictures,, it does not exist.

    So here ya go.

    I received my 3 Milwaukee Road 4785 cft covered hoppers from scale trains.

    I guess they read my comment on you tube about their poor choice for a new loco, so they through in some candy that I like.
    For real,, the candy was in the box when I opened it.


    Now comes the pics of the actual cars




    I just don't get the boxing gloves,, what the monkey #$%@????

    I am wyatt and I approve this message

    They must really like you. I ordered 4 Dash9-44CW's and all I got was one starburst peppermint mint (that I can't even eat because I'm diabetic).

    Paul, I think the smarties win over the covered hoppers!!

    I really like this model, what sticks out to me is the low sides. The 4750 has high sides,, but this model is 35 more cft. If they produce more road names,, I will buy more,, just get rid of the damn boxing gloves,,please!!!

    I thought about even weathering one up,,who knows.

    You, this is me, out

    John, It is not that they llike me,, they are trying to poison me,,lol

    I think Wyatt is referring to the couplers, Gordon. They look like they might be Athearn/McHenry's, which are a little over scale. Or perhaps Scale Trains has a proprietary coupler?

    I think it's their own. It's gone through three iterations, I believe. The original turbines had the first and they were even bigger. I think the couplers are related to the McHenry but still different.
