Where things will get interesting is how model dimension differences will be managed/handled. If you place an Atlas and MTH 40’ boxcars next to each other, the MTH is always taller. Probably any rolling stock. Same for diesels. Theres excessive see thru space under the MTH diesel frame (that I don’t like). I prefer the Atlas management of the dimensions. I Really hope Atlas can begin making modifications to MTH product to have uniform heights.
Perhaps I’m overly fussy. Just laying out my opinion and hopes for upgrades that IMO will create a more uniform product - make this great news even better in the long run !!!! 👍👍👍
Atlas is buying the molds. They can now do anything they want with them including lower bolsters and different trucks which is the main reason why MTH rides higher. When Atlas bought Intermountain they replaced most of the plastic detail with metal to make them more durable.
