Just got this in an email.

Looks like that is the sum total of the N Scale announcements for November. Weird.

You just had to go and get me all excited and then I had to find out it's a Ford C van.  My actual reaction was "Motherf*$#$r" (not at you, Chuck, just in general).

Logo on the left was used from 1961 to 2003, when they made the switch to the one on the right. The brown color, however, has never changed.

P.S. The windows on the building in the background look like a bad modeling job...

Unlike Wally, Athearn obviously 'gets' N scale.  ::)

Damn, if they were going to do the package cars (what they call the common brown delivery vans), or the 20' trailers, it would've been awesome.

But they're not...

Why do you hate dull-coated acetate printed with red lines?   ;D

This was a very light month for Athearn in either scale. VERY LIGHT!

I have some of the 20' trailers in resin...very nice. I need crap loads for my UPS TV trains.

It never stops with N vehicles, you always get excited then BAM! Even if there are modern pics it's a hard sell for believability putting that next to a Schneider or JB Hunt on ones layout.

sucks,
