    So I was thinking about Athearn, and the lack of an N scale FEF in their product line. Currently I am told they have no plans for and FEF. This does not sound like its written in stone. Maybe the squeaky wheel will get the grease. I have let Athearn know my feelings on making an FEF in N scale. Pehaps you guys will sign on to my posting and also contact Athearn thru there product ideas link.

    As for me I want 8 FEF's to begin with.

    Maybe they just have not heard out voice?

    As for you that dont want an FEF this would be antoher high quality 4-8-4 frame.

    We are hoping ATHEARN hears the long call of N Scalers for EMD GP-60M & GP-60B
    before Turbines, or FEF's. I understand everyone has something they'd like to see made, but come on, Geep-60M & B is gotta be hands down the winner.

    Ok, i did it. I sent my request for both the FEF and turbines. As much as i like the gp60m's, the other 2 have to come before it.

    I'd buy two. I guess I'll meander over to the Athearn site and add my opinion.

    And, for this case, please ignore my sig. :)

    Even though I'm not a staunch UP modeler... I only have a few engines (Y3 Mallets, Big Boys & Challengers)... I'd probably go for one of the FEF units if available. I'd go for the Turbines as well.

    Athearn, put me down for 2 FEF's. Then next year put me down for 2 Turbines.
    It really is that easy to get my money, Athearn. That easy....
