does anyone know if there is any new stuff comming soon other than the blackstone 2-8-2?
PSC/MMI also has a K-27 arriving any day now. They are also announcing 8 other locomotives available for reservations, including 2-8-0s, 2-8-2s, 0-6-0, and 4-4-0. See http://psc1.virtualfocus.com/ for details. Don't know for sure how many or when all these will actually be produced, but I'm reserving a 4-4-0 in hopes.
Blackstone is producing a new box car and stock car that should be available this summer. See http://www.blackstonemodels.com/products.htm.
MicroTrains has a new release of an HOn3 car about every other month.
All the above are RTR. There are still many car and structure kit available, with new ones being released frequently.
I had heard that Athern had bought out MDC/Round and may release some of the HOn3 engines under the Athern name. I can't rember the name of the company, but someone was going to be releasing a remake of the old Spartan Mogal.
that all sounds great I do hope somone will come out with some good stuff at a good price. not everyone can pay 400+ for one engine.
I hope so too. Some of the HOn3 stuff can get pricey. There is train show in Helana Mt. in about a week. Last year there was a dealer from Oragon and I bought a brass HOn3 Mogel (Spartan) for $100. For about $30 worth of detail parts from Walthers, I had really nice looking engine. If she is there this year I will get her address and send it to you. Last year she had about 10-12 HOn3 brass and her prices were very reasonable.
