Carson, CA – Athearn Trains is pleased to announce that it has purchased tooling for twelve different HO truck trailers from A-Line. The trailers will be part of the Athearn Ready To Roll® line of products.
“These models will give the Athearn® RTR vehicle line the widest variety of HO truck trailers in the market,” stated Athearn President Michael Stephens. “I’m delighted these models will now reach more hobbyists and collectors as assembled and decorated Athearn products,” added A-Line owner Joe D’Elia.
“Hobbyists will start to see these items as assembled, painted and printed Athearn RTR models early in 2008,” added Stephens.
Under the terms of the sale, A-Line will continue to supply the hobby market with the kits and parts for the trailers. A-Line has never sold the items as assembled models.
In 2004, Horizon Hobby, Inc. purchased Athearn and moved it into a state-of-the-art new facility in Carson, California. With the purchase of Model Die Casting, the launches of 1:50-scale precision die-cast products, the 4-6-6-4 Challenger with sound and other exciting new models, Athearn remains the railroad industry leader in quality and value.
