Division Point N&W passenger cars BEj

I received the Division Point M1 RPO cars today.

The car itself looks fantastic! The diaphragms are very well executed, maybe
one the best produced yet!

The details on the car are very well done and crisp. The window treatment
are excellent with blinds(?) which helps hide the empty interior.

There are no lights in the car, but could be added if one prefers. I will
leave my as is for now.

The color, well let me say it's some type of maroon, red, pinkish color that
doesn't come close to the Overland, Key, Rail Classic, AHM/Rivarossi cars,
which are pretty much all the same.

The red looks like the Bachman red which is way far off, that there is no
words to describe.

The roofs are charcoal, gray/brown or something I can't describe but
definitely not black. I compared the roofs to the N&W cabooses Division
Point produced if they were

trying to do brown roofs, and they are no match.

The roof color doesn't match any N&W models ever produced that I've seen.

The under body and end are black and is very good and detailed.

Division Point has a reputation of screwing up the paint schemes, like the
N&W Blue(?) caboose and VGN caboose red.

I am looking forward to the next car, but sure hope they correct the paint.
I personally will call Ken or Jack at DP to let them know.

I give the car a 10, but the paint a 6.

Just wondering, where did you buy your M1 for $396? Thanks, John

For those that are waiting for a correct N&W Class BEj Baggage Car (Nos.
110-124) I would recommend waiting for Division Point.

The Rail Classic N&W BEj is a very poor rendition of the car so I dumped my
after realizing all the problems. The Division Point car should sell around
the same price of $396 as the M1 RPO.

I have not received my M1's yet and will give all my take on the red. I
just hope they are not the hideous red as the Bachman passenger red.


Another heads up for the O scale VGN modeler. Sunset is doing the VGN AE
2-10-10-2 the end of this year.

The O Scale N&W K2a Streamlined is due early 2010.
