Also More MAXI-I's with 40' containers in TTX, BNSF (swoosh) and AOK   (not a misprint this is the Maxi-I)

The Maersk Paint Scheme, REALY  :facepalm: Why not the horsehead scheme or the original with dashed frame stripe?
Your layouts nice, but it needs more Conrail !

I know...   Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't that on a CR unit, which would have the wrong trucks.

You have to figure plain old NS is coming, I would bet horsehead, because Kato seems to always focus on the newest scheme.

The BN 8023 is still in Green Paint, although it has had it's horn moved and it's headlight moved to the nose.

Yes NS 3329 was Conrail 6358, so if they are willing to do former Conrail locomotives with incorect trucks, why not just do Conrail.
Your layouts nice, but it needs more Conrail !

Yes former Conrail SD40-2s had flexicoil trucks. However NS has also acquired 40 "new" 40-2s from leasing companies (20 from CEFX and 20 from NREX). All have been repainted in NS's HH and two are in Operation Lifesaver. Three "snoot nose" ones were also included.

I'm happy that they're doing this one with ditch lights.   :drool:  I think they were moving headlights around the time I model so I'll probably be ok with that.

And finally, straight Maersk (not Maersk-Sealand) containers!   8)  And right after I finally found a dealer that would sell me a Maxi-I without the containers....great timing!   :facepalm:

"Hey lets do a new run of SD40-2s. We haven't done those in a while."
 - "How about an eastern road for those crybabies back on the right coast."
"Like Conrail?"
 - "F**k no! Make it Pan Am, that way we can prove those whiners don't purchase east coast roads."
"Oh, and don't forget to make the handrails five shades lighter than the body color!"
Celebrating 1000 days of humiliation.

Good to see these will become available again.  Road names are meh, but paint and decals makes 'em what you want.

Glad to see them,  I bet more are coming...

I would think they would fit some of the leasing schemes in there as well....

Convinced myself I don't want any SD40-2s and Kato goes and does this....

.... and the Kato USA website crashes due to...... well, I don;t know due to what... it's down.
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!

I was hoping for more Algoma Central.
