Second run of IM Sd40-2's announced.

The CR with correct trucks and anti-climber should be of interest to some people.  Perhaps someone should email IM to confirm the drawing accurately portrays the N scale version and not just the HO one.

And of course, I'll be looking at the Chessie units with interest.  :)

Yes Chessie  8) I'll take a Conrail too. I hope these units are as good as their F units.

Awesomeness.  It they keep this kind of release schedule up, it should make a lot of people happy.

Too bad the short hood on the British Columbia Railway version is too short. :x

No real roadnames I'm in for this time.  The BNSF unit looks interesting as it look very similar to the some ex-leaser Dash 2's NS has bought recently, that has me interested though.

How about if we wait till the first run is actually in before another 11 page thread about these engines?   :D

No CSX predecessors on the Seaboard System side, so I'll wait.  I could justify a Chessie System (B&O) unit, but I really would prefer a Seaboard System or Seaboard Coast Line SD40-2.

I'm interested, but I'm not reserving until I see the first run.

Wow, the MSRP difference between DC and DCC/sound is $110.  With a basic DC-only MSRP of $139.95, it'll be interesting to see what the street price is.

I fear I'm being priced out of dual-era...and I'm a Pennsy man first.

If you had a bigger layout Dave you could have both era's at the same time.  :facepalm:

Oh, Rock Island for me please. And a birdie said MTL might be making their SW1500 in bankruptcy blue at some point.....  better start hoarding cash! I like some of those covered hopper schemes too.

Same here, wish they had held off on the second run until after the first was already out...afraid too many of us are going to hold off being we don't trust IM QC too much, and don't want to be burned.  At this rate, they may announce 10000 roadnames/numbers, but if not many preorder, units will just get cancelled.
