That's neat !
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

It actually isn't that bad.  Hard to tell where the sections are attached.
Can't model worth a darn, but can research like an SOB.

I like the profile view, the 6 fan roof is a little different.  Overall workmanship looks good.

There is a real Nohab made by Kato, a six-axle engine.
It is marketed by Hobbytrain in Germany:  http://www.lemkecollection.de/shop/index.php?page=categorie&cat=465

I like my CFL version very much :)

That Santa Fe unit just looks wrong to be, like a bad dream.  At least Kato makes some western roads in their European lines.  Unlike their US eastern road focus!!

i've seen one of these in Denmark while traveling... i did a Discount Double Check when i saw it.

Kato is making the models now...  in undec of course...

the story goes that denmark had no coal of their own... so they turned to the US (detroit) and had EMD build them some since they turned to diesel relatively quickly.

It's prototypical!

Definitely a conversation piece.  And for that price, shipping is not even included. 

I take a lot of medicine but I WANT WHAT HE'S ON!!!
