Hmm... I don't follow Twitter, but have Kato been known to post 'hints' before?

I'm not one to put much stock in hints and rumours normally, but I could find a home for an N scale 844 ....

Cheers,

Kev

Supposedly there's a hobby shop flyer floating around out there as well (announcing #844 for release later this year).

Cheers,

We thought we'd take a break from posting info on models we've already released to stop and admire some scenery

Yeah, they're probably doing the 844.

And I couldn't care less...

There were rumors a while back about them doing the 844, so it makes sense

Actually, I think that's the BSA GEVO (in the picture that is)

We're getting closer to an NYC Niagara.. :)  (Correct number of wheels :))

They're not hard to do out of the existing stock of CR SD40s, actually.

Its mostly a "standard CR detail" and renumber job. Slap on a sinclair antenna, cab signal box and some new numbers and you're good to go.

If you're adventurous, you can choose one with the brake wheel on the back porch, which is just an issue of adding that and filling in the nose one.

So, what you're saying is if there are rumors, it must be true?  And this is why our democracy is failing, too many people believing the internet and TV news.  Whatever happened to "facts" (not fax)...

I think it is ok to say that we can put some stock into this rumor
