Athearn N Scale Department of Corrections N-Scale Intercity Bus

In January 2019, Athearn announced 10 new paint schemes for its n-scale intercity bus ($24.98). Paint schemes include: Black & White, Glacier National Park, Pioneer Tours, Unified School District, Santa Fe Trailways, Union Pacific, Rock Island, Capitol Bus Company, Department of Corrections and RV Conversion.

These re-releases will feature some of the following: rubber tires, Simulated “curtains” painted on insides of windows and windshield wipers and have an estimated release date of January 2020.

According to the Athearn website: The intercity bus was utilized by many companies beyond the typical charter bus companies. Railroads too, utilized these buses for connectivity with passenger trains. As these buses went through their service life, some went into service transporting inmates for the Department of Corrections. A few went into private hands and have been repurposed into RVs by collectors.
