Atlas O Scale SWgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Central of Georgia Railway Historical Soc : One Thread
I noticed in the last "The Right Way" that Atlas is doing a CofG SW in "as delivered". Has anyone thought about asking them to do a CofG "as delivered" S-2? They already have the engine. The O Scale SW will be $250 in the cheapest version available (2 rail.) The HO scale S2 would be a much better seller than the one they chose to do. I just hope that if they don't sell many of them they don't use that as an excuse not to do anymore CofG locos. Does anyone in the CGRHS model in O scale or have any Lionel O23 stuff? The 3 rail version has Lionel Railsounds and sounds like it may rival MTH quality. (It unfortunately, is about $100 higher than the 2 rail version. I haven't priced any MTH or Lionel locomotives lately, so it may not be that expensive for that market.)

Richard, The decision to do the switchers was made by Atlas. They seem to be big into O scale lately with several new products being offered. We did supply them diagrams for paint schemes. There are several members of the CGRHS that have an interest in O scale. Atlas has been very good to the C of G modelers as of late, they recently announced N scale boxcars as well. We need to support Atlas as they continue to produce quality Central models. E-mail them with your suggestions, unlike Life Like, they are willing to produce products for us. Also don't forget Kadee, these guys also understand that Southeastern sells. Todd Horton
