This model has had a funny path: it came into the Acton train store in a collection, I bought it, then swapped it with Bill for a similar model (that currently resides in my basement in pieces), then Bill sold it at the white elephant table this winter, and this dealer bought it, marked the price up $10 and is now selling it (only a $10 profit??? sheesh).

Finally joined the Conrail Historical Society, and they had the Conrail Commodities book I'd been looking for at $10 off - yay.

I can't wait for these new Atlas models to come out:
