Atlas June Releases are up.

I'm sure many are excited for the return of the Shay and also the new container.  I think it's been a while on the Auto Carrier as well.

I'm of course looking forward to the 6' door PS-1's but a little disappointed in the DSS&A box car.  While a cool scheme and a great SOO patch candidate for modeling the late 60's, The car Atlas has chosen to do is supposed to be a riveted car.   :| DSS&A did have another series of welded PS-1's.

Different scheme on the welded series?  If not, a road number change would work, no?

Different schemes.

Atlas:



Welded car:



Not sure if the welded car has a 10 or 12 stiffener roof.

I've seen shots of the earlier scheme patched as well.

Yeah, just saw that, $30 for a single container?

Whatever happened to economical containers?

Ok so question about the containers, are they magnetic? I didn't see it under the features...
Also are they compatible with other containers like DI, Kato, Walthers, Con Cor or Rolland Industrial?
I mean $15 a piece would be a tad pricey if they weren't magnetic, I'm just asking because I can already get Kato Maersk ones for around $12 for a pair...
Science isn't about why, it's about why not. Why is so much of our science dangerous? Why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! Not you, test subject, you're doing fine.
