Walthers Observation Car

Heard from the guys over at the Santa Fe Modeling Society that the Walthers HO Budd observation car coming in the near future is an SAL prototype. Is this true or just another rumor?

I was told by a reliable source who works at Walthers that the round end observation was going to be based on a SAL prototype.

In an email message from Walthers I was told they were going to do two more Budd Cars in the present series. No date was given. One would be an observation car, and a dome car. As none of the cars they are selling are modeling I doubt very much the observation car will be to the SAL standards. As SAL did not have a dome car it will of no use. Allen L. Wiener, Ocala, FL
