I want a Conrail 70's for the next layout. I haven't seen any BW's in a few years of looking.

They won't fit under my current layout's bridges, only the 40' T.M. cubes will go under.

Just did this W.P. for someone last week.

                          Guess it cost Atlas O too much to make them anymore?

Nice HO selection here - http://www.athearn.com/newslet...0_Berwick_062620.pdf

I have several in ATSF - a mix of 2-rail and 3-rail. They occasionally pop up on that big auction site, but the sellers are asking premium prices, typically over $100 per car. If you need 3-rail and are only able to get one that's the 2-rail version, I can swap you the trucks and couplers for three-rail.

They look nice in a train with the MTH cars, which are also fetching a premium price now.

Save a search for "Atlas Berwick" on eBay.  They pop up from time to time.  I managed to find two ATSF and one rare-as-hens-teeth TTX this way.

If I sold models as sought after as Atlas O's Berwicks, Trinity hoppers, and intermodals, just to name a few, I'd be producing runs of them a bit more often.  I know rarity keeps values high, but these pieces selling for 2-3 times msrp should be indication that the market exists for them, right?

Edit: should mention I'm not looking to sell at the moment (too few are and for good reason, these are fantastic pieces).  I just wanted to share the strategy that worked for me.
