They don't show up under new products - but there are some "announced 10/15" and "discontinued"

I did a search on PWRS site, they are indeed cancelled by manufacturer .  If you go to advanced search, you can select Athearn and tank car 33K gallon .  3rd page shows the items with project cancelled by athearn.

Strange. Great cars, every time they do a run I order some. I wonder what happened?

Not enough pre orders is the likely suspect. Athearn would know for sure. Anyone have a contact?

It's my fault... I only pre-ordered four of them. They're too new for me, but a few years I can live with.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
