Do those tank cars actually have shelf couplers or is that just the artwork? It would be really cool if they did!

Although that would be nice, I would assume no. The CTCX car has ho instead of n listed. I assume this is an ho flyer they've done that was edited for n scale. Not sure about these models in ho but all of the ones I've seen at my ho based train club seem to have shelf couplers from the factory.

Athearn usually refers to their ex-MDC PS-1's as PS-1's vs  generic "box cars".

For this run,  I noticed they were also doing a run in HO of the same roadnames, probably on the old "Blue Box" 50' AAR box and probably went with the generic description to fit both models.

FYI - they decorated it as an ACF-built car rather than a PS-built car

The HO versions do, I think.

The tanks are cool, I've got some Athearn TILX green tanks, probably need to get some of the ADM tanks to fit my layout idea.

I was afraid that they were going to announce the 53' trailers to go with the flat cars announced last month. But thankfully nothing for me this month.
When was the last time they announced a diesel engine? Seems like it's been quite a while.

I would love to see them do another FP-45 run in the original ATSF warbonnet scheme.
