Two hoppers came today -- took 11 days since I ordered!. I admit I probably didn't pay super close attention in ordering them. I just clicked on a couple things I liked. I notice now these are their "Evolution Series" -- there's nothing to complain about though in fit, finish.

There's some extra parts in a bag in the box, no explanation -- so no idea where those go. Using a magnifying glass, I was able to read all the labeling, even trucks have some cast in lettering.

Those are rotary coupler prototypes...
They run with the colored ends all facing the same direction.

Ah. I had to investigate. Such a coupling system allows for the whole car to be rotated one after another one presumes.



And the real thing


( I wonder if it's even conceivable to license the cad drawings for purposes of scale model making...vs looking at pics or sneaking around a rail ya d with a measuring stick...)
