If anyone has wondered what the result is of all these mergers/
buyouts would or will be on the modeler, just ponder this: I just

Roundhouse box cars and reefers from Athearn was told in no uncertain
terms---"Those are discontinued!" Hold onto your hats gents and
ladies...this is not the end of the story. Only the beginning.
