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. Liveries to be produced include NYC lightning stripe, Erie-Lackawanna black & yellow transition scheme, and others. MSRP for the H16-44's is expected to be $159.95 for the Silver Series (decoder ready), and $269.95 for the Gold Series (Lok Sound).
In addition, RS-3's will be offered in NYC and P&LE lightning stripe schemes, and the GP7 will be offered in Erie Lackawanna's gray, maroon, & yellow scheme.
Atlas is also expected to offer P&WV PS-2 covered hoppers, "1937 AAR" boxcars in Erie and NKP liveries, and many other items.
Save your pennies.
