Check the roadnames.  Then you'll know why a most are still lingering.  There  are a couple more well known (UP - now sold out, MKT, CEFX) but the rest are not.

Some looked like easy repaints for more popular predecessor roads. I missed the UP before it went OOS. Makes me wonder just how expensive that sound really is.

Seeing the ICG stuff makes me somewhat happy, though they never got to Baton Rouge  that I can tell.

And if you buy now, you also get to take advantage of free shipping for Mothers Day..... :?  My wife specifically asked me to NOT get her model railroad stuff again this year. :(

Philip,

If it makes you feel better buying one, I just came across a photo of ICG 6031 taken by my dad in Baton Rouge about 1980 while scanning negatives this week.
