Do you guys have one?

If not:

Are you planning one?

If not:

Is there any sort of guide on how to make rolling stock "JR Compatible" (or better yet, LilB compatible)?

Even the freeware sets the bar so high, I hate using older cars in a consist with yours, and of course having the air hoses mate is a bonus.

I'd say there is a high likeliness of this being built in the future.

Ah, the man himself!

They'd go so sweet with your Boxes, Flats, and Gondolas! Of course I can, and do, use your Gondolas to haul coal, it's just one of the other quintessential cars for the "Steam Transition Era".

As long as you dropped in, any suggestion for Tank cars or 4 bay hopper? I use JR tanks, but I'm not sure they are era accurate? And I use 4 bays from RRMods, but they aren't JR, if you get my drift.
