I have been patiently waiting for the “NEW” MTH 3-car weed sprayer set for approximately two years now. The item has just come out in two color schemes, a UP and the Amtrak version shown here.

The Amtrak Version

The UP Version

I felt that this was an interesting concept, but I became impatient and decided to make my own bug spray car.

While my version lacks a sprayer unit, operating headlights, operating marker lights, flashing lights, interior lighting, proto-sounds or remotely controlled proto-couplers, you must admit that my version may be up to the tasks at hand.
