    They have been out of business for quite a long time (maybe 10 years or so). I think someone bought their tooling and was producing some of their products for a while (maybe it was JnJ) but I have not seen any of their stuff for a long time. Shame; their 72' circus stock car wasn't bad and I need about 15 of them. Guess that is not going to happen.

    Here's a thread from about five years ago on this forum...
    Southern high hood GP30 finally done! - TrainBoard.com

    I'm fascinated by how Southern ordered high hood versions of locomotives after nearly everyone else had gone for low nose locos. I happen to like the high-hood look, probably one reason that I like GP9s and SD9s. I realize that visibility can only be better out of a low-nose locomotive, but from the outside I just like the high-hood look.

    The problem with Mark4design is last time I contacted him about some shells, he was having problems with his supplier. So I am not sure how available they would be. It would be nice if that problem was corrected though.
