Re: New Athearn 50' box cars

Tim O'Connor

Len, Athearn acquired the Details West freight cars and Railpower
Products locomotive shells and truck trailers some time ago. Horizon
recently acquired Athearn, and then absorbed Model Die Casting into
the Athearn company. They have already announced a release of many
MDC cars in their Ready To Roll lineup. Many of these cars are not
the least bit accurate representations of the prototype, so beware!

After examining the new Athearn model, and while installing Kadee #5
couplers, I happened to notice something very interesting. It
appears that this new Athearn model is in fact identical to the
Details West car, in every detail.
