From the Model Railroader News:

"Lowell Smith purchases tooling from Wm. K. Walthers Inc.
Published: Saturday, November 11, 2017
Lowell Smith has purchased the tooling for N scale fluted- and smooth-side baggage cars, coaches, and sleepers from Wm. K. Walthers Inc.

New releases will be sold under the RailSmith Models line. RailSmith also plans to expand its line of N scale passenger cars. The first RailSmith Models offerings are scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2018. "

As for the locos, not sure who the players that would be in, but seems like a MT would be a good choice to try and get the chassis in their hands for the SW.

MT has used the Walthers GP38(-2) in at least one of their train sets. I know it was used in the Weathered Conrail set from a few months ago.

Walthers site still shows they have the Thrall 5-Unit Articulated 48' Well Cars in stock so that has to be the latest run (it only SEEMS like forever since the last run on anything). The SW-1200 is SUPPOSED to be re-released in Dec 2017. Other than that, I can't find anything other than a limited release of old building kits.

Black hole...

Yes, according to their web site these well cars appear to be their latest release. - Bob Witt

I hope Lowell has good luck with his new line.  I haven't bought any of his custom cars, as I have no need for the ones he's done, but the few contacts I have had with him, he seems to be a nice fellow, and a good business person.  We can always use a new supplier, especially one run by an N scale modeler.
