Five different railroads are represented with one loaded hopper and one empty, each with different road numbers. Akron Canton & Youngstown, Baltimore & Ohio, Nickel Plate Road, Pittsburgh & West Virginia, and Wabash are the five roads the hoppers are available in.

"In The Hole" as of 9/17/02

Here's a look at what will be available soon from Brewster Shops.

One current project is converting some first generation Paint Shed SW7's to work with the new version of PS. As some may know, the entire mapping of the model was changed in the new version so it is taking a little work to correct this on the old models. Once finished, there will be three Indiana Harbor Belt paint schemes available (basic black, black on orange, and orange on black).

Next on our list of projects is one for Todd Picha (UPRR). He has requested some SD40s in MKT John Deere scheme and we hope to have them finished by the end of this week. And since there's more to the Katy than SD40s, we're going to make GP38s and F7s as well as SW7s all in MKT Green and Yellow and a few in MKT Red.

Prjindigo is working on a series of EMD units including GP35s and SD35s and many variants on these two locomotives. Once released, we plan to paint up many of these beasts.

We are now experimenting with Paint Shed templates so expect to see some interesting new paint schemes here at Brewster Shops very soon(tm).
