In reality, it's a "9700". I expected that when I ordered one. It sold out pretty fast so the whole thing for now doesn't really matter.
Thats the key here. If METCA and TCA had simply numbered them and referred to them as 9700 cars there would be no complaints. Hard to imagine it costs that much more to produce a true 6464 than its does to make a 9700. It will be interesting to see what trucks come with these cars as well. Likely not the sprung diecast trucks we have seen on previous 6464 remakes.
