    Hey Folks,

    I am looking for two hard-to-find Athearn tanker cars. I have flooded
    the internet with e-mail requests to many train shops via the Walther's
    website listings. So far, there have been many replies with the same
    answer: not in stock. If you happen to visit your local train store in
    the near future, could you please take a look for these two cars and let
    me know via e-mail if they have one or more on hand. I would like to
    purchase as many as five of each. I'd really appreciate it.

    You can reach me at: mc_brennan@yahoo.com

    Athearn [HO scale]:
    140-7301 Santa Fe
    140-7304 Union Pacific

    Thanks So Much!
    Matt

    Yeah,

    Ebay and go to big train shows in your area... hopefully you are near a large city that gets a few large train shows each year. The Great American Train Show typically has lots of dealers with tons of Athearn blue box kits - thought they are starting to thin down.
