A friend at the modular club brought a set of the new ready to run Athearn f-units to the meeting last month. There are the r-t-r versions of the old blue box, not Genesis. I noticed the paint was a lot sharper than the old models. The model was done in Santa Fe passenger and the stripes around the war bonnett were sharp, clear, and scale width! I just bought an A-B set, and when I test ran the powered A unit at the hobby shop, I was amazed at how smooth and quiet it is. I also tried to see how slow int would run, and it is a real creeper!
