Hi Railfans
I would like to see after Athearn makes the the MR 70TH boxcar that they would follow up with the other five commemorative boxcars of Sept 11, 2001 that WSOR also painted, each one different
I can supply at least two different car pictures that I have taken while the cars are passing thru Willard Ohio

Atlas did an 8-40b and a wide vision caboose in HO to honor 9/11. They also did some things in N and O. They only advertised it on their web page as some people could see it as profiteering from the events. They gave all the profit to several charities in the New york area and a full acounting of where the oney went. I've only seen one set advertised for sale on E bay since it was released so it appears that most of us who bought them are either very patriotic and running the wheels off them or anticipating a large collector market at some point in time.

Decals are available for the WSOR boxcars. www.scalerailgraphics.com/WSOR1.htm Note that they have to be ordered from either WSOR itself or Scale Rail Graphics. Good luck!
