I've heard rumors... might be another electric loco. Might be an olympian-sized effort on Kato's part.

I've heard this "big announcement" was in the part of the news letter discussing the Amfleets.

Horizon is capitalized.  Horizon cars, anyone?

Horizon cars would be interesting - with variations, I guess they could also do some commuter fleets with the F40PH's as well...

Since Jason at Rapido has publicly stated they do plan on doing the Canadian in N in a few years, I wonder what Kato is going to announce?
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Bi-Polar? 

Little Joe! Little Joe! (Not for sale in Russia) And a 1952 Hiawatha, replete with Skytop and Super Dome! They can do the Armor yellow version later, and run some more E units to increase their ROI.

I will never run electric (well probably not), but that's one train I would actually collect. 'Course, I still need to get me a Zephyr...
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.
