I just saw a post in another discussion group that Bowser has bought Stewart. Has anyone else heard this?

Kind of wonder how this will all turn out. One thing I'm thankfull for, I bought all the Athearns I need for my conversions, before Horizon purchase of Ath. The thing I see more often now is the Athearn RTR which leaves me kind of confused :confused: is this just a completed Blue Box kit or something new. If it is just comparable to a completed BB kit, then one might as well pay the few more $$ and get the Genesis.
Looks like someone thinks there's gold in the modelrailroaders pockets and they're going to dig it out.

Cheers Willis
