IIRC, Plano was developing the etch around the time Centralia released their upgrade modernised ATSF caboose with an etched walk, and then Intermountain released their ACF also with an etched walk, and I can only assume Plano didn’t feel there was enough of a market.
I hope he wasn’t correct (VBG) as we are planning to release the product once Keith makes a couple of small revisions for us.
It will include step tread and platform tread etches.
Never could figure out why this was discontinued in the first place.
