3rd Rail Pullman Solarium car? Is that the latest announcement? Anyone interested in one?

On my driod, I went to the Sunset/3rd rail site and see a listing under "new announcement" for the Pullman Solarium car. Is this a brand new announcement or did I miss something? I know the PRRT&HS keystone did a good article earlier this year of the Pullman and subsequent purchase by the PRR of the Solarium car. I would like to get this car esp in the PRR scheme and/ or Pullman assigned to the Pennsylvania RR with "Pennsylvania" at the top ends of the letterboard.

Prospective buyers for new Golden Gate Depot passenger cars that care  about prototype accuracy should let Scott know that re-using the roof tooling from his 12-1 heavyweight Pullman on other Pullman heavyweight variants will visibly compromise the accuracy of the model - and effect their buying decisions.  One of the interesting things about heavyweight Pullmans is the variety of window configurations and AC duct location on the roofs.  It's a form follows function thing - the AC roof ducts change in length and location relative to the room/aisle arrangement in the car below.  Some modelers might not care - but a growing percentage of today's 3RS and 2 rail modelers do want the major details (especially the roof profile, window pattern, and walls) to sync with one another.

Not sure if this qualifies as a solarium of sorts but it's built in the same methodology as a heavyweight albeit in Alcoa aluminum..

Yes we need a solarium car. so here is my take on the matter, The 2 window version has been done by PSC. So The better choice for new is the 3 window as painted in the circus colors. This has never been done in O scale. If Scott would do it I would take 3.
