As you probably know, Athearn does not make them any more.  But, they have a parts list on their website which identifies what is currently available.

Tim Blaisdell and Ed Urmston Sr. published an excellent resource. Standard Guide to Athearn Model Trains is the definitive reference for all Athearn collectors, listing all road names, numbers and release dates for all Blue Box Kits, Special Edition Releases and Train Sets. You can find them at Amazon, on Ebay or even at most libraries. They have also put more current information on HOSeeker's site.
