These 52'6" gondolas were produced starting in 1943 and continuing through the 1950s for several Canadian railroads. These cars were used widely throughout the United States and Canada well into the 1980s. Many remain in company service today. This release includes an undecorated version and multiple road numbers in multiple schemes.

In May, Mike Zollitsch got around to finishing off the last of his Allegheny & Eastern engine for his HO scale Buffalo and Pittsburgh Railroad. The A&E only ever had six locomotives and now he has the whole roster!   The A&E 303 is from Athearnís semi-recent release. He made some improvements like removing the classification lights, adding lift rings, MU air hoses, cut levers, MY jumper cable stands, windshield wipers, and I changed the number from 103 to 303. Then He gave it a good dose of weathering, although he may take it back into the paint shop and tone it down with a grimy black wash.
