Will you attempt to tone down the red with some black weathering?

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
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.

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
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.
