I saw this post:

https://www.swissmodelle.ch/

If I am translating correctly, it appears that AWM has gone out of business? Can anyone confirm?

It says AWM closed as of 31st May 2020. No big series in August. swissmodele will buy their entire stock of Swiss trucks.

I have a number of AWM containers that I collected in my travels over the past decade. AWM allowed me to have a tremendous variety of loads for my container cars. Wonder what will happen to all of their molds?

I have a few of those. The larger ones (45ft) that I have (Ewals, Ge-Fresh) do not fit on the Maerklin container cars without constructive solutions.

The tank containers and 23ft swap containers work pretty nicely, but you need the Herpa 084192 adapter to seat them on the Maerklin cars.

Most of my container assortment is from Herpa, Kombimodell and others.

I just got a pair of Herpa 40' Tank containers (Bertschi) from DS Automodelle in Germany. I was very happy to see how this container looked on one of my Rocky Rail Twin Cars.
As an experiment, I placed the other container on a Maerklin Sgnss (47097) type, using a pair of the Herpa 084192 Adapters and it remained in place and looks very nice.

AWM had a similar design, but not in the Bertschi livery: https://www.truckmo.com/...kw-Container_TRUCKMO.jpg
