Re: HO scale H20-44 diesel shell

I have heard this complaint. For years, we have actively lobbied Atlas (and any other potential manufacturer) to make an H20-44 shell available, but nobody has stepped up to do it.

HO scale H20-44 diesel shell

Re: Sanctioned source for new AC&Y-A&BB Morning Sun Book

Main Line Hobby Supply, in Blue Ridge Summit, PA got theirs either Wednesday or Thursday. By midday Friday they were sold out. They're ordering more. Scotch Plains, NJ (home of Morning Sun Books) is about 200 miles east of Blue Ridge Summit. If they're being posted from there, I expect the UPS or US...

Mather 1200-1220 series boxcars

For a proposed commercial modeling project, a photo of one of these cars is needed. These cars had an inside height of 9'11". The side door and the area around it are of particular interest. Please check your photo collections and let us know if you find anything. Thanks, folks!

New items announced for early 2015

A friend was at the train show at Springfield Massachusetts and reports that Atlas has announced a new run of F-M H16-44 diesels in their Master Series. The AC&Y paint scheme is not being offered this time, but modelers who missed these engines in the past may want to do some repainting. Liverie...

If you contact Rich Yoder about this project, please tell him this is where you learned about the O scale Mather cars, and tell him you're an AC&YHS member.

Thanks.
