It kinda blows me away that Atlas would release a Kennecott Copper scheme.  Who is getting one?

  As someone who grew up here in the presence of the World's Largest Open Pit Mine, ,it is a Way Cool Tourist Atraction, I will  buy a couple of these, however my KCC era was when they had Electric locomotives in the pit (large steeple cabs) and even larger ones for the road haul trains to the smelter. Now the mine is all trucks,and the only rail complex is raound the smelter area.                                    Nate Goodman (Nato). Salt Lake, Utah.

Possibly a collectors model like many M-T cars in the future?

Most likely not, as I have enough odd and unusual road names already that I don't have enough track time to show off. It`s interesting that they chose an SD24: very handsome looking locos,  if I do say so (well, at least the high hood verisons). But I must that the BCRail crowd would be far happier if we could convince Kato to do an SD40-2 in Kennecott colours

It sounded like a good idea at the time... too bad the caboose wasn't in on the plan.
