O Scale B60b Baggage Car?

Post by LINYARailfan » Sat Feb 18, 2017 9:32 pm

Hello all,
Ever since Weaver Models closed and went out of business, it has been very difficult for me to find a O scale B60b Baggage car. I met with the owner of Weaver Models at the April 2015 York train meet and I inquired as to if he were planning to consider doing another run. His response was "not at this time." Shortly after that he announced that Weaver Models was closing on the Weaver Models website. I spoke to a few o scale model railroaders shortly after that and they told me that all of the Weaver tooling was sold to Atlas O LLC and Lionel. If this is true, who owns the tooling to the o scale B60b? Will there ever be another O scale B60b Baggage car run in O scale again and if so when will this product start to appear in catalogs again? Thanks.

Lionel got the B60b tooling.

They were in the latest catalog released about a month ago. While street price will be less than MSRP…be prepared for sticker shock on these. I think they about doubled the MSRP.

You may want to post this question in the O Gauge RR forums.
