    This is a picture of a BLMA Models release of this 62 foot
    double sliding door insulated BX-166 box car.

    On February 7, 2018, Atlas announced it will release another BLMA Models tooling (the n-scale BX-166 box car) under the Atlas Master product line. (Atlas acquired BLMA Models in January 2016.)

    The pre-order deadline for this item (MSRP $34.95) is Wednesday, March 14, 2018 with an estimated arrival of 3rd quarter, 2018.

    This item will come undecorated and in a number of different paint schemes with new road numbers for each scheme.

    Some product features will include: separately applied wire grab irons and wire cut levers, metal wheels and knuckle couplers, which will be body-mounted.

    Both body-mounted couplers and metal wheels are product features associated with third generation n-scale models. (Please see our blog The Evolution of N-Scale Rolling Stock Models).

    Here is a link to the BLMA release of this N-Scale BX-166 Boxcar on the Atlas website.

    Atlas should just make the BLMA name a subsidiary of Atlas and re-brand it as, "Best Looking Models by Atlas."
