**Clean Cab**Some of the details of the M8s are coming to light. Here's a few of the literaly thousands of details..........

There will be three types of cars built. A, B and C cars. A & B married pairs and A & C married pairs. The cars will weigh in at 136,000 pounds and be 14' 8" high and be 85' long. The seating capactity is "A" 110, "B" 101 and "C" 60 which leads to speculation that this "C" or "Bar Car" will have a pretty fair sized bar not unlike the current M2 "C" cars.

They are speced out to run on 25k VAC (60 cycle) , 13k (60 cycle) VAC, 11k (25 cycle) VAC and 700 VDC. They will have ACSES compatible cab signal system and a full spectrum radio that can acess all AAR channels.

The minimum order is for 50 "A" and 50 "B" cars with options for 140 additional "A", "B" and as many as 24 "C" cars. Bidding ends on March 1, 2006.

More info can be provided if asked.
