Their getting close to what I need in a switcher but still no cigar.  As far as getting fired.  I hope they get rid of the Santa Fe lovers (to those Santa Fe modelers out there, I don't mean you).

And still they manage not to re-release the Dash 9 in NS colours. I despair sometimes!

Any idea what the re-tooled C44-9W could be?

Correct SP style porch mounted ditch lights?

did you see it - re-tooled - we will maybe get one with the right light assembly in the 3rd or 4th run...

...UP and SP - re-tooled - does that mean the ditchlights are on the pilot as on the AC4400CW ? that would be great !

...re-tooled means also now with the right trucks, right ?

...one can only hope they will also do the right cab/sill for the CN/BC Rail version ?

...again, no undecorated in this run - fcuk  >:( >:(

ah and the F3s - they can shove them... !

The UP 9564 is an ex-SP unit - I believe in the standard UP scheme...

The SP 8110 is the other unit...

Apparently just two units, one of each r/n...

If they would do the NW-2 in Maryland and Pennsylvania, they'd sell a ton of them on the "cute" factor alone...

Lee:  I found a MA & PA train order in among a group of WM orders I obtained in the 70's.  Got in touch with their historical organization and send it to them.  It was for one of their NW units.  Don't know how it go into the WM orders I have.

Fingers crossed for a CN C44-9W, sometime... soon I hope.

I see they've pushed back the SD75I release date  ;)
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

The WM interchanged with the M&P at York via the Penn Central.  Probably came from there.

Trains between Hagerstown and York would have passed through Highfield.  Those M&P papers must have gotten put on the wrong clipboard... With the PC involved, the cars in question might still be lost!
