If you climb up on the smoke box, you will notice something that is different from the J1e's that have been produced time and time again.

PRR Passenger Cars:
There has been much discussion on the color of these cars. We are working with members of the PRR Historical Society and will be using paint chips that match PRR more closely. The actual color of these cars will be more red than in the brochure photos. Currently under construction are the PRR P70 coaches, B60B baggage and R50 Reefer. We have adjusted the price on the R50 reefer to $249.95 ($50 reduction) as it does not have an interior or lighting like the coach or baggage car. Look for these cars to be released in mid 2003.
New Project Announcements:
PRR Q-1 The "First Duplex": With E.O.B. Cruise
A predecessor for the Q-2, T-1 and S-1 Duplexes, Baldwin demonstrated their new Duplex to the amazement of PRR management. What an achievement.

Berkshire Mania:With E.O.B. Cruise
The reservations on these models are almost full. The B&M had these T-1as for many years, but during the later part of WWII many were sold to the SP and Santa Fe railroads. The most distinctive feature of these locomotive are the Coffin Feedwater Heaters attached to the smoke box fronts. SP quickly cannibalized the tenders and placed whale back tender tanks on the B&M tender frames. Later both the SP and SF removed the Coffin Feedwater Heaters, but we liked them so much we are producing the engines with these FWH in place. Look for these Berks to arrive late 2003.
