Athearn Add-On July Announcement: ACF 2970

Athearn added a run of 2970 2 bay hoppers (BN, NP, RI, WM, CNW) to their announcements - it is at Athearn.com and the PDF is a copy of the HO announcement.

No NW though,  boo....

Also some Mack tractor/trailers....

Yummy NP cars.  Must have...
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I wish that Atlas would tool the older version (Pre 1971) of the ACF 4650cf Covered Hopper like they have done in HO.

The Rock Islands will make excellent patch-outs.

The WM ones might have tempted me once . . .

Those are really nice cars, probably be getting a couple of the NP, maybe the Northwesterns too.
I’m not here to argue
