In reviewing the "On-Line" MTH catalog, I am interested to know if these Paint schemes were prototypical for these cars:

MTH PRR 64' Passenger set Pg139

MTH AMOCO 8k Tank car 20-96752 pg133

MTH Sunoco 8K tank car 20-96749  pg133

MTH Canadian Wheat 100T Grain car  20-97922 pg 126

Thanks in advanced.

It would save two thousand possible respondents time if you attached the appropriate photos.  The AMOCO and BP are fantasy paint schemes.  Why do you care to know?   John in Lansing, ILL 

Yes it would however I don't know how to attach a photo from MTH online catalog that was just released.

I care because I like prototypical cars... Not fantasy" island" schemes. Thanks for your reply. You just saved me some funds.

Save the catalog photo into your computer.  Then post that photo into any message as you would any other photo.  John in Lansing, ILL

The other two Canada schemes were common schemes.

The Pillsbury cylindrical hopper paint scheme is totally accurate. I saw one in the past week.

There are photos on rrpicturearchives.net and at railcarphotos.com

That red and black  version of the Government of Canada scheme would have been a one of a kind test paint.

Remember the good old days when trains were toys?  They still are at my house.

Well, I graduated from "toy trains" to model railroading, sometime in the mid 1950s.

Sorry to hear that.

Why condescend to others who choose to enjoy the hobby differently than you?  If your truly happy doing what you're doing, it shouldn't be necessary.  Certain people like prototypical trains, as that's what they want to model, why is that hard to understand and appreciate?
