    In a photo I took, (and have posted at lease once before)

    I wonder who is going to consume the manufacturer.

    With the open door of the boxcar:
    Great - Became - Eat
    Northern - Became - Athern
    Due to the font, the "A" and "R" are almost the same
    Yes, it is the wrong spelling, but for humors sake, it is close enough. This combined with a low level feelings around / toward Athearn for the way they are dealing with old MDC product they just acquired leads to a subtle tiny chuckle.

    Athearn has already been "eaten"- by Horizon Hobby, some time back. Musta set a precedent, 'cause now Walthers has bought LifeLike.

    If Walthers bought LifeLike, this can only mean one thing:

    I now have to wait for lower-end products
