CNJ, LV, and Reading custom hoppers from ARHS

50's and 60's modelers, here's a great chance to stock up on coal hoppers.  A custom run of unnumbered Atlas hoppers has been produced exclusively for sale by the Anthracite Railroads Historical Society.

All printing was done by Atlas except the road numbers and the end numbers.  A decal sheet is included with at least 10 NEW complete road numbers.  The decal was created from Atlas' artwork, and is a perfect match for the printing on the model.

The price is $13 each.  See the following page for pictures and prototype info (scroll down to the N scale section):

I believe they are Alps-printed.  Let me confirm...

Mmmmm.  A cut of CNJ hoppers would be an interesting addition to the fleet...

I confirmed that the decals are ALPS, printed by Tango Papa.  Our usual source for HO decals was unable to provide the resolution
necessary for N scale with their screen printing process.
