New run of Kato SD70MACs

I just saw that Kato has announced a new run of SD70MACs in BNSF executive, Conrail and CSX bright future.

I appreciate any new CSX locos from Kato, but if your going to do the same model, why not another paint scheme like the new one.

Better yet, I would have liked to see in the run of SD80MACs, a CSX in the dark future scheme or a flared radiator SD70MAC in dark future.

I have heard rumors over at Trainorders that Kato told someone they planned to do the flared SD70MACS....

Geez, will you look at that... the Kato SD75I seems to have fallen down in the cue again.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Re: sd75M - remember this was just the rantings of more than one person on trainorders, which I would take with less than a grain of salt.

Re: SD70M-2 - you would have to assume that the SD70ACE is on their list, so the SD70M-2 would not be too difficult to do.

I'm not on train orders, so the ranting of someone there matters naught to me... and the SD75M is of no interest to me.

I have been on a one man harrasment campaign to Kato for them to do the SD75I. Kato has much of what they need to do the SD75I (and SD75M). What are they waiting for?! Athearn's unit is glued together... fudge that  >:(

Someone will do the SD70M-2 and SD70ACe (and the ES44AC and ES44DC)... unless they are idiots  ;D

OOps - I meant to say SD75I!!! 

It is strange, since I think the most in demand Kato model of all time is the CN C44-9W...
