Quick Update

New Books/Deadlines etc.
Posted by: Dave Cool

Hi Kids,

I'm about to add the Canadian content from Athearn's August announcements. There's quite a bit this month so check back in New Products later in the week. Are those tank train cars accurate for Canada? Please leave a comment. The pre-order deadline is September 20. Meanwhile, due dates continue to slip on previous announcements.

Note that the Atlas BCR 50' Evans double-plug-door boxcar and CN/CP Ford Explorer pre-orders need to be in later this week. Again, previous due dates are slipping - to TBD in some cases.

The Bowser Baldwin DS-4-4-1000 switchers are on their way to me. I have four CP left - one no-sound and three sound.

You sure took advantage of the Digitrax sale. I have re-ordered and should have a big shipment arriving this week.

Also note the deadline looming on Intermountain's latest release of trough hatch cylindrical covered hopper cars.

The Morning Sun book VIA In Color: The First 25 Years 1976 - 2001 is out and shipped. I have ordered more and should have them within a week.

Railfare DC Books have finally released their work "Canadian National Steam! A Locomotive History of The People's Railway", in soft- and hardcover. They are to be followed by a series of roster books in the Spring. All can be found here. I will probably be ordering this week.

Several new Walthers products have just been added to the Store, such as a GTW-style wood caboose, more 50' CC&F bulkhead flatcars and a few other cars. See New Products.

That's it for now,

Have a great week,
