The track maintenance truck looks promising. It should be closer to 1:48 scale though, much like the recently released old-time inspection venicles.

1:28 is too big to look good with 0 Lionel.

the maintenance truck is a great idea but what i see and have seen you need to stop and look at the ones match box made to scale. the one you guys have as sample sucks. the little cars you made with tmcc are great and well thought out. or $119.99 was great price and to scale.
I think you need to stop and rethink on this one.
Just My thoughts from what I have seen.

WHAT I’D LIKE TO SEE MADE IS A FEW ADDONS TO THE SILVER FLASH PASSENGER SET. 4 LOCOS AND 4 CARS JUST DOESNT LOOK RIGHT TO ME. A DINER AND ANOTHER COACH AND VISTA DOME OR TWO.
