Re: PC: Atlas/Athearn

>By the time you get an Athearn loco up to today's standard(handrails,

range anyhow.

 Yes, for where I am, they are overpriced. I'm also quite happy with my
engines having the stock handrails and only a few details. The biggest
change under the hood is Ernst regear kits.
 I don't have a lot of spare income, and I'd like to have an engine that I'm
interested in at a price that won't kill me. That's what got my goat about
Atlas and their Alco Centuries. Not only were they at a very high price for
me, but I also found their limited run policy exasperating.
