Here is a better size picture:

Writing rather than modeling N scale. . .

Even without the paint that is stunning.  I'm sure its written about upthread somewhere, but whose pantographs are you using?

Michael,
your PRR reefer updates made me dig up this thread. Any updates on this model?  I already have couple of Arnold GG1 donors waiting.

Wow. How did I miss this thread? What an amazing job.

There are times I kick myself for modeling Conrail. If this was on the roster I would buy one in a minute, regardless of price. Kits are just so un to build.

If only there was enough interest in a resin and pewter AEM-7 kit. I need 3-4 toasters.

My Thoughts exactly... The castings look very impressive! I've dug through the thread trying to find any info on ordering/stating interest to no avail...
I would be interested in 2 to 4 kits based on the projected cost...  :)

I just read this whole thread, and I can't understand why, despite many requests, a price was never given, even a ballpark one!... :facepalm:...If you're trying to gauge interest, this would be a key factor, no?

After reading the whole thread, I am becoming thankful that I don't need or want one of these!...I hope you MILW guys get this off the ground, I've always liked the Little Joes..I would love to see what the talent around here could do with this model...

I just want it released, because I'm theorizing the probability that Kato releases one will then go up.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.
