Athearn C&NW 65 ft mill gon

Mike Brock <brockm@...>

I note that Athearn is producing a C&NW version of the 65 ft mill gon. I also note that the Athearn numbers:

Gondola, C&NW #95081 & 95156

do not match the numbers Richard reports in his article in Feb 2006 RMJ nor do they match those in the '53 ORER [ which match Richard's ]. The Athearn cars also have a '58 [ I think ] built date. Rather annoying for those modeling the steam era. I suppose one could change the numbers. Does anyone know if these cars are correct for the late steam era? Wonder why Athearn chose such a date...shutting out the transition era modeler?
