Yes; I've seen the announcement on some other lists which I'm on.
The end of an era. Though I graduated beyond them decades ago, I'm still
disheartened to see them go away. They were good for people on tight
Accurail is perhaps one of the underlying reasons why they are getting out
of the kit business. Most of their kits are in the $13-$15 price range, and
pretty good models for that price point.
Let's hope the same market factors which lead to Athearn's decision won't
lead to Accurail getting out of the kit business. It could happen.

a_a_a - can you be more specific in your reply:
Was that "public mailing list' in a postal mail list, or their e-mail list?
I heard about it through my train club.
I am subscribed to the Athearn e-mail list (for several years) but didn't
receive anything since their "Athearn News - Athearn announces the Veranda
Turbine" on 9/23 until yesterday I got their "Athearn News - 10/21/2009"
.... and neither mentioned the end of the Blue Box kits. i am not on a
postal mail list.
... just wondering if an email filter is blocking some email from Athearn
I'd like to be receiving.
