Re: New Athearn freight cars

Tim O'Connor

It's a bit hard to tell from Athearn's images. Do these two new cars
have separate grab irons and other detail parts, or the usual trainset
blobs of plastic?
Garth, I expect the gondolas to have separate wire grabs, but the
covered hoppers to only have wire grabs on the end sills, while the
ladders and slope sheet grabs will be cast into the body. But it
is possible to make fine scale plastic ladder rungs, so this may
not be a problem. They don't say anything about the running board
