Hi. I just saw the ad for this and it looks great (except for 1 thing)...
I, and I'm sure a number of you have the 1950s Ambroid "One in 5000" (was it ?) kit version of this..I do, but I didn't protect it enough through my travels and is quite messed up now...The Bachmann looks to me to be the exact same guy, only plastic, not wood...
OK, the one thing that may be incorrect is the end panels.. They are the steel boxcar corrugated type ends, not the wooden ends I believe it would have had..and that I believe my old Ambroid has as well..M
