Hopefully that means the entire Arnold line is getting a reboot. Maybe some N Scale STEAM reboots?  :o

Oops. That link goes to an HO announcement. Here's the N announcement:

Probably not on their list but this would be an easy one to make...

Awesome!  I had no idea that the U25C survived into the Seaboard System years.  If they offer the Family Lines Scheme on an L&N, SCL, or SBD model, I may bite, depending on the quality of the model.

Dave,

After the government was finished building the Oro Dam with U25Cs, L&N bought them.

Not sure how long they lasted until being repainted, but these look pretty cool.  Green and gold.

This is great!  No it's not.... I was was firmly placing my layout in 1952.  I guess I'll have to open a worm whole to an alternate universe.

Makes modeling the early years of BN that much easier.

Here's hoping they have tremendous success with this model, NP and CB&Q are for me!

Let's see... only 6 railroads had these locos (plus Oro Dam, which went to L&N). There were 113 locos built. See:

http://www.trainweb.org/jaydeet/u25c.htm

Doesn't seem like a very popular engine. I'm just sayin'.


Hmm... yeah, they shoulda
made the Jawn Henry...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Ron,

Very cool!  I've never seen that scheme before.  Thanks for sharing.
