They appear to use the same BLMA wheel design. Nice!

I know right, they even use BLMA in the part numbers. :D

I-yi-yi did you see the price increase? MSRP of $5.95 to $7.95. I know, Atlas has to make a living too. I've been needing to restock for my True Scale Coupler conversions.

Oh thank goodness.  I'll still look for old BLMA stock at cheaper prices, but at least I don't have worry about them being totally gone.

I feel old. $7.95 for a pair of trucks with wheels...my first N scale were new MDC tank cars for $4.65.

ns711, what are you converting for $800 MSRP? Hope there is a good street discount on these.
I wish we could just buy a bulk pack of 10 pairs of trucks without wheels in a bag. No need for fancy packaging.

Me three. 

In the nothing-is-ever-simple department: when BLMA trucks first came out, their lowered bolster and fine wheels made me a convert, but it also forced me to adopt body mount couplers, which led me down a certain rabbit hole.  Then, when FVM came out with resistor-equipped wheels, I decided to standardize on those (with BLMA trucks).   Now I'm looking at an MSRP of $11.85 per car (not including couplers) to go that route.   That's a bit much...  :|  I suppose I could harvest the wheels and sell them, but I'd rather not.  Hence, me three.

lol probably won't all be at once :D
But I plan to convert all of my rolling stock... at least the ones that I can. But I would love a bulk pack as well...

Now maybe I can finish my MDC tankcar upgrade, which has been sitting on 70-ton trucks.

According to BLW they will have "bulk packs" so like 10 pairs!!! So I'm very excited for this!

Just show Atlas does listen to us whiners.
