I guess we will see the DC models being dumped on eBay for great prices as folks upgrade .

Wish it were an RS3.

The PRR and ultimately the PC didn't have many of the RS2's running around.

Love the DCC friendliness of the RS2, as opposed to the less friendly RS3's.

These have always been DCC ready. Earlier runs had the as-delivered schemes. Nice to see some later schemes, but not my era.  Wonder if this is one of the new locomotives that were discussed.

Any news yet on whether there are any upgrades to the jewel case? We can only hope....

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Well if you roll your own you can easily make an RS-2 into an early RS-3! The only killer are late RS-3's with the battery boxes...ugh!

Bachmann is making an early RS-3 in HO. Might make it to N. Maybe soon, maybe not. I'd be in for a few.

You're a sissy.  It's one of the easiest conversions out there... if you have a band saw!
