    What strikes me in the report is that the opposition to storage is first listed as "unsightly." NIMBY?

    In talking with a friend I found out that Warren County signed a contract with the SARATOGA and NORTH CREEK until 2021!

    Not sure why a RR going away or ceasing operations would suddenly make a model a collectors item. If that were the case every fallen flag road would be a collector item, and in that case, I'm sitting on a gold mine, but I'm not

    Would check with either iowa pacific or ATLAS about the SARATOGA and NORTH CREEK Railway N-SCALE and ho-SCALE DASH8-40B Locomotive. I think the 1:1 SARATOGA and NORTH CREEK Locomotive is, was a B39-8.

    There's no external differences between a B39-8 and a B40-8.

    But still doesn't explain why you feel a fallen flag would cause the models to suddenly become collectibles

    Only way I can see would be if Atlas discontinued or if people simply felt they were (psychology at play)

    As I stated on should ask either Iowa Pacific Holdings or ATLAS about the commisoned SNC Ry DASH8 locomotives in both N and HO SCALE. I also was thinking along the lines of the ATLAS a1g..

    I model BN, Atlas still makes BN items, and they aren't collector items...

    Only reason I can see these becoming "rare collector" items is due to a single run and therefore not many were made.
