Not on the Kato site, unless I'm missing it - scroll down a bit and you'll see it.... and some ATSF F units as well..... great if you model the ATSF I guess...........
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!

 :|      When I rode what was then Amquack's (Trak's) "Southwest Chief" with my dad from LA to Chicago on 21 day Rail Passes ,then being offered. The train was essentially the old combined Super Chief El Capitain but the cars had all be painted in phase I Stripes and a few redecorated inside.Kato's train could represent the front half of the train,Kato's Pooper Chief  cars if painted Phase I with no rear lounge obs car would be the rear. About a year later Santa Fe said Amtrak was not maintaining high enough standards to use the Chief name,train then became the "Southwest Limited". Later it became the "Southwest Thief" (late running trains )Chief again. Nate Goodman (Nato).Salt Lake, Utah.

Usually I don't care about such things, but those are pretty cool.
