I now it's been announced but I just saw it on Kato's site.  Say what you want about Kato's policies, they appear to be addressing some of the wants of N scalers.

Along with the GS-4's pulling numbers, the GG1 is going to be able to pull a 15 car train up a 4% grade.  I don't know if that'll be like the GS-4 where only 11-12 cars are actually on the grade like in the video, but certainly something that has been a problem for more than a few years now.

Hopefully it's back to the mid-west after the BL.

Since we already know about Kato making the G, and we are pretty certain they will do a great job with it, THE most important thing Kato has on their website is that it will pull a FULL 15 CAR BROADWAY LTD CONSIST.

15 cars?  Not just that it will pull them, but that they will be making 15 cars for the BL.  Sweet...

I'll probably get a set for NTRAK running.
