It appears that the UP #157 non-DCC/sound has been dropped, or it's a software/typo issue. I suspect it's the latter.

There's a LOT of Athearn/Roundhouse Old Time 2-8-0 product previewed... I would be highly surprised if they dropped the whole production schedule.

I would like to add one (two would be even better!) of those RTR 2-8-0's to my roster. It would give me another "RTR" steam engine with DCC/Sound.

Bad as it pains me to say it, perhaps if (IF I purchase) the engine (or engines) was lettered UP, such could be lease engines for my Colorado & Pacific. (Maybe AT&SF would be a better choice?)

Fun to dream.

Andre

My impression over time is that the Athearn site is neither 100% error-free nor always helpful.

Thank you, Ted. Very kind of you. HO is as small as I go, at least for now.

My master plan (if such a thing exists, because it keeps changing) calls for a lumber yard. So I have started work on one which will need only a few small structures because real estate is tight. I selected a prototype that really appeals to me. Here's a photo of the image I am working from and my start.



The walls are stained a weathered gray color, then I ran artist's pastel sticks along the siding and brushed it hard to remove much of the pastel and give a faded paint look. The trim is stained gray and a sepia stain is brushed on and allowed to dry.

Mike, A good looking choice for a lumberyard, and a good start modeling it.
