1. If Athearn expanded into the O scale market, what would you like for them to make?
My wish list for starters is the S.E.I.C.O. boxcars and the EMD SD70/SD70M.
2. How can we get Athearn to add O scale to their model train line up? I did contact Athearn by email 3 years ago but haven't heard anything from them. I should've talked to them about adding O scale when I attended the Columbus WGH show last January.
I chose Athearn for this time because it seems to me Atlas is dropping the ball on new products for the O scale market. Lionel is doing better with their 65' modern mill gondola, 30k gallon ethanol tank cars, extruded aluminum ACF covered hoppers and diecast 100 ton coal cars.
I would like to go back to NOT having to do 2 rail conversions on freight cars that I like/want.
