Re: New Athearn freight cars

I am assuming from my little bit of research (perhaps the term is
"guessing") that the PS2s are of the Ga-90 and Ga-94 classes. Do these
models fill any other classes?

It's my understanding that Athearn will do a RTR '50s version of
the Ga-47 or Ga-48 class (built in 1937 and 1940).  The models
themselves will also be essentially accurate for the Ga-55 class if
trucks are changed to National B-1s and for the post-WW-II Ga-70 and
Ga-76 classes (built in 1949 and 1951) if the trucks are changed to 70
ton ASF-A-3s.
