Athearn F45/FP45 n-scale photos up....

Anyone notice that Athearn has quietly added photos of painted versions of the n-scale F45-FP45? I'm guessing these are pre-production. Some larger images would be nice. Hopefully they bring them to the Derby Express and someone can photograph them up close.

Yeah they threw them up a couple weeks ago without nary a whisper.  Nothing glaringly obvious sticks out to me, but I'm no expert on the F45.  Definitely waiting with baited breath for my 2 Undecs though (to be painted in BN Executive)

Really wish they had done a Montana Rail Link paint scheme on these.

Seems like an obvious choice seeing as how they are among the only ones in (semi) active service today.

If you take a look at the second HO run, they MRL's are there and so are the NYSW's.
We just have to be patient.

Thanx

Those photos look great.

I'm here at the N Scale Convention.  I'll keep an eye / camera with me in case some news
or samples show.... :-)

If they run as well as they look then they'll be a hit.

Those look pretty good for cowls.
