Wow, good announcement!   Maybe a little surprising...two years ago at OKC Athearn rep said "probably never" when asked about a TRE F59PHI.   So, very cool to see that finally.  Even though I don't model the TRE anymore, I'll get one.

Nice to see the BN black and BNSF mineral red releases.   Athearn still can't bring themselves to do any more utility coalporters.   Whoever does the TGNX cars first is gonna have a winner.  As coalporters go, there's not a better looking scheme and logo than these cars.   Personally I would love to see the red CTTX cars done, too and they would seem fairly low risk...simple scheme, less rejects, etc.  (and in fact, numerous identical paint schemes for other reporting marks)
NOTE: I'm no longer active on this forum.   If you need to contact me, use the e-mail address (or visit the website link) attached to this username.  Thanks.

I'm surprised they didn't do FURX or another leasing company which is usable on several RR's...

I'll be in for some of the 60' auto parts boxcars I have several of these and they are good models. They will go well with the new MTL 60' boxcars. 8)

Is CN new for any sort of coal carrying car?  Don't recall seeing that one.

I have not seen this minor variant of CN before, without the big noodle logo.

The big news for me this month from Athearn is that the Challengers are on the shelf at my LHS.  That's also big news for my son, and at least three fellow N-scalers...modern shtuff is of absolutely no interest to us.

Hopefully the NS ones arn't as shiny as the last ones, they where almost to Bachmans level.
Your layouts nice, but it needs more Conrail !
