There were rumers they were measuring either a Chall or a Big Boy a year ago or so . What if anything will they now do ?

Athearn did the Chall , Big Boy , FEF-2 and FEF-3 in HO , good chance for them to do all 4 in N now .
IMRC looks to be doing the Cab Forward

They won't do anything, but they'll release it with one road number and in a western road paint scheme. ;D

Sounds like a decal sheet and a few jars of paint to me .

Kato will continue
to ignore modelers C-boat, SD40-2, SD45, and Eastern roads requests...
Support fine modeling

Boy , that would really pull the rails from under Athearn's wheels .

What would Kato do now? I'm guessing whatever else they find wandering around the barnyard.

...oh, wait.

If Kato wanted vendetta with Athearn, all they have to do is release an SD75I. Then we can all see whast an SD75I looks like when it isn't assembled using glue.

I'd imagine any or all of the following:

SD70ACe
SD70M-2
ES44AC
ES44DC
SD75I (my dream)

I'd think new steam is unlikely, or at least it'll be right on the heels of re-releases of the U30C, C30-7 and SD45.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Then you'd end up having to spend the remaining 100 adding sound and DCC, ;)

The "scoop" is that it's an SP GS4 Daylight with/without a passenger train....

Supposedly it's NOT a new diesel....

But who really knows???

I think the logical choice for Kato's next model would be the Capital Subway:



This would silence those that say Kato ignores eastern modelers.

Credible source indicates the  SP Coast Daylight, with appropriate motive power.
