  • Announcing Primed for Grime!



  • Primed for Grime”- what does that mean? Simply put, we at Athearn have given you a head start at weathering locomotives and freight cars.
  • We’ve taken the time to research locomotives and other rolling stock from actual photographs.
  • We’ve faded the body and lettering colors, added patches, applied newreporting marks and the like.
  • Primed for Grime” models will be available in our Genesis, Ready to Roll and Roundhouse lines.
  • Whenever you see our new “Primed for Grime” logo you’ll know that you are getting a little help from us here at Athearn.
