What is Kato showing in the box?

None of the NS Heritage SD70ACE's are red (I think??)    Possible SD90MAC - not sure what is red and yellow though??

If it is a SD90MAC, it might be SLRG




Edit: I think I can see the words "Rio" in the center under the word "Metra".

Are you sure it's not the Leigh Valley ES44AC?

I thought that, but you can see the walkway is an SD90 - and also you can see the CIT logo on the nose...

On another note, I'm surprised that Kato went (almost) all out on the F40PH, with the correct marker light casings, Mars light between the numberboards and the MU receptacle on the front...but still the wrong plow :ashat:

Also very clearly see the "Rio" on the side as well.  Most definitely is the SD90 SLRG.

I'm confused.  First, I'm not sure why Lou is asking a question about SD70ACE, yet, the photo he posted is of a Metra F40PH. 

Except for the mismatched color fo the horns, I'm impressed that Kato seems to have tooled up at least couple variations of the shell.  The Amtrak one has inset ditch lights and a single AC unit where the one Lou shows, also has low-mounted marker lights and dual AC units.

You're confused....   :D

I'm confused as to why Kato does an SLRG SD90MAC and ignores the 900 BNSF ES44DC's or 700 ES44C4's or the UP tapered cab SD70M's or ............

I think is cool  Kato is doing small roads on there 90mac instead of the usual UP and BNSF. I rather Kato do a FEC SD70m2 or CSX and UP SD40-2 than become the second manufature two produce the same BNSF gevos that FVM already sells. Those UP SD40-2 will become FEC SD40-2 in my hands :D.
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

I guess my brain somehow got distracted by what clearly seems to be the main subject of the photo (F40PH), than focusing on what that loco was sitting on (closed Kato boxes with an outline of some locos barely visible under the bubble inserts.)  :facepalm:
