  I am trying to play catchup now!  I need direction in finding all three Athearn SP Bay Window Cabooses!  Every input is appreciated.  I have checked a few hobby shops online with no luck. :-[  Will athearn rerun these?  They wouldn't with first run of ethanol tank cars.  Thanks!

Check with Al's cycle and hobby here in Medford Oregon.  A google search will bring up their info.  I believe he has a few of them in stock.

Joe helps someone find an Athearn caboose...  What's next?  Santa at Macy's sending shoppers to Gimbel's?

From what I read somewhere Athearn was supposed to be coming out with another run SOON;  but if your still looking and haven't found one as yet Give these folks a call they may have one still there.
Ace Hardware/Hobby.  (520) 747-9473; ask for Hobby.  Poc Alan or Shaun
Good luck; hope that helps

It's probably a given that Athearn will re-run these, given that they are SP cabs, and the popularity thing.

At least that's what I'd think. Athearn may or may not think along these lines. :P

   Score!  I was able to find all three at the same shop.  I could wait for the next run seeing I don't have a layout.  I have a problem with wanting them All!  I'll get rid of the CC and MP ones!  Thanks to all for the Info.

I wouldn't get rid of the other cabs, with a little work the CC ones make C30 classes and the MP ones C40. There was an article re making the C30 in NSR magazine last year.
