re: PC: HO Scale PC Hopper

covered hoppers lettered for Penn Central from Intermountain Railway
Co. (the order number is 40321).  I wanted to drop a line to list to say 
these models are excellent.  I recommend them for any Penn Central
modeler.  (I am unsure how long they have been out, so many readers of
this post may already have them).  Intermountain has a twelve different
numbers available and the kits come assembled ($23.00ea.) or
unassembled ($16.00ea.).  I purchased the assembled models and noted
that the workmanship and detail are superb.  Because of the fine detail,
assembling the kits yourself requires a good deal of time (about 3-4
hours each).  They are available from your local hobby store or directly
from the company.
