Athearn FMC 5347s now arriving.
« on: Today at 11:10:59 AM »
Has anyone picked up the new run of Athearn FMC boxcars?

I'm curious if they have body mounted couplers, and whether the underframe could be a drop-in replacement on older Athearn/Roundhouse boxes with the metal underframes.


All the photos I've seen so far are just pre-production artwork and no photos of the actual model.

I'm pretty sure they are body mounted McHenrys, like all the recent ones I've bought including I think the latest run.  To my knowledge the floor would match the MDC but I've not tried it.
