Hey Atlas...

When are we going to get the GARX and Post-War 40' and 50' boxcars; the PS1 in 50' varieties, and an updated version of the plug door?

As long as questions are being asked - last I heard, the BLMA tankers were due around February...OK, so they missed the Chinese New Year - can one of you gentlemen share with us their whereabouts?

The tank cars started shipping to distributors last week, along with the 60' flat cars and a slew of Atlas product.

FYI any of the orders that BLMA took prior to the acquisition are still being processed through BLMA, we are just shipping the product for Craig.

Lol. Since we're begging.

I could use a pair of "plain" Chessie GP-9s.
Look at them all: http://www.railpictures.net/photo/260919/
...

I'm certain you can convince Paul & Co. to produce these for you. Simply tell them that you plan to model this scene, and, oh, here's advance payment for the pre-order.  :D  :trollface:  :ashat:

I'll second the Chessie GP9 and would also like to see a B&O capital dome gp30 already have the sunburst scheme. Also would love to see an atlas 50' ps1 at the level of their 40' version.

I'd like to see a GP30 with the correct fan spacing and without extended range dynamic brakes.

Ed, I'll shoot over my PayPal information to you tomorrow...

Lol.

You know I only bribe for Conrail crap. Now, I'd happily slip you a Benjamin if you'd do SD40-2s...

Since any SD40-2 from Atlas would have the correct trucks and be released on time . . .   :facepalm:

I'd agree with you but some modern modeler might give me negative street cred for asking for 60s era product that I could use (buy) and Atlas already makes in HO scale.  :P

Thanks for the update, Paul.  Mr. wallet's bracing for attack.

And of note, the BLMA web site now shows status for current and future releases.  Nice move!
