Reply to "METCA - Really, again? This time with a 6464."

Stu      I honestly do not remember the person or the club from which I heard that " Lionel will unlikely make further traditional size box cars in the true 6464 style". It was a few years ago and I had contacted on of the major clubs ( LCCA, NLOE, RRMLI, LOTS, METCA, NETCA, TTOS, etc.-I dont think it was the national TCA ) about one of their club cars-it was one of the clubs that had done quite a few club cars in the true 6464 mold. The very nice person , as best I can remember, told me that he thought that subsequent box cars from that club would be more from the 9200/9700 molds because Lionel would no longer produce the 6464 type traditional box car. It made sense to me as neither Lionel nor any of the clubs ( even if they advertise a 6464 box car in their club offerings) have produced a 6464 type box car since that discussion. Clearly that club representative ( nor I ) did not intend to be negative-rather just stating what they thought the future would bring. Again, being an old 6464 box car nut, I would be happy if these reappeared on the scene.  Thanks, turtle7
