That's from my inventory list. They've already done both mineral red and black.

Athearn did the cars in 3 road numbers. There is a photo of the model on the BRHS web site under plastic models.

There is problem why they may not do (or have not done) the mineral red cars. The Q cars had a unique roof hatch spacing that differed from the common P-S covered hopper arrangement. The CB&Q cars were among the first built by P-S. You would probably have more success trying to get Walthers to do them with their version as they are not as picky. Take a look at an article by Ed Hawkins in Rail Model Journal in September 2005. These back issues are available for viewing on the TrainLife site.

Since Dave mentioned the list was quiet and I responded to Dennis Poppish with part of this, I thought I would throw this out to the group.
Athearn has a product suggestion email, athearn-productsuggestions@xxxxxxxxxxx and it appears they are listening as they mention during the Facebook Train Tuesday broadcast that many of the items they are releasing are a result of suggestions. They will not respond but it only cost a few minutes of time to send them something.
I sent suggestions on releasing the early airslides in the as delivered scheme and the PS 2893 in the mineral red. The more they hear from us, the better chance we have of getting something produced. Specific information helps too.
There you go Dave, trying to make it not so quiet!
