I have been waiting a very long time for the Canadian Pacific and the Canadian National red wet noodle passenger cars to be produced. Nothing has been done since the initial run and they were not included in it. Is AZL ever going to produce these or am I going to be continually disappointed? I am looking for the full line in each livery. Baggage, RPO, sleepers, diners, coaches, business/observation and parlor cars. I can't complete my layout without these and I hope I'm not going to be dead before they come online. When will they finally get here and if not, why not.
Willy, Looking at a few images of the CP maroon, it looks just like the PRR maroon and black, was that the case?
If that's the case isn't CP just a matter of a different set of print pads for PRR?
Don't feel bad, at least you're getting half of what you want. I'm still waiting for Western Pacific in Pullman Green or maybe an Exposition Flyer set. I'd be happy with the green or TTG cars that are undecorated and sleepers marked only "Pullman."

I thought that too but the reality of it is, the CP passenger cars are a totally different colour. The PRR are a brownish colour and the CP are a true maroon, or as Canadian Pacific used to call it, a burnt sienna. If you research these railroads, and compare the pictures you can see the difference. Also, when the CP baggage car first came out, I asked Tony at Z Scale Monster to put it side by side with the PRR and he told me, the colours were totally different. It shouldn't be difficult for AZL to do a run of these cars since they already have the paint scheme with the baggage car already produced as well as the lettering. All that needs to be done, is the cars given individual names and numbers which shouldn't be a huge deal.
