PC: RE: Review of Athearn's 8-door 86 foot Box

Dear Steve and List Members:

If you send that 8-door hycube to a Chrysler Plant, they'll probably refuse
it! That's because 8-door cars were originally designed for GM service.
Here's the correct info for the original designs:

4-door cars:

Ford service
Chrysler service
GM service (late 1960's on)

8-door cars:

GM service

Note that in the 1980's and 1990's the original assignments for these cars
got pretty jumbled up. I've seen 8-door cars at Ford plants, for instance.
However, this is the exception, and certainly not the rule. Also, 8-door
cars are definitely on the way out.

Now your new PC monster is ready right from the
box to transport parts to the local Chrysler-Plymouth plant! Huzzah!
Athearn also makes a 4-door 86 footer in case you'd rather service a Ford
or GM plant.
