To make it more prototypical you may need to get the one with the coal tender, empty the bunker, remove the drive rods and motor and tow it around...

 :|     Already owning a 4014 I would rather have a Bob's, in Utah in the mid 1960's they were called JB's or JB's Big Boys. As a teenager cruising at night there were two locations that were open all night where we could go and hang out if our parents hadn't imposed a curfew.                                   Nate Goodman (Nato).

Needs more Conrail

It's coming in Conrail - the "alternate reality series", I believe.

Where is the link to this announcement?...I saw it yesterday and downloaded the the file to my pad, but can't find it here...
I hemmed and hawed when the Big Boy was last released, so I missed the boat on them...this new re-release is a welcome one for me, especially if there is anything improved from the last release. Although ATSF is, by far, the main player in my layout plans, Union Pacific and Southern Pacific are supporting cast members. A Big Boy is an essential piece for my 1957 era UP drag frieght and/or helper service for a Union Pacific "City of..." Streamliner.

Same situation as the last run. I didnt buy, too expensive for a single locomotive and no option for no sound.

How about looking for a used 1st run loco on eBay, then un-decoder it?  :D  At this point they should not cost an arm and a leg anymore (since there was a 2nd run).  One way to look for the 1st run loco is that it comes with a remote control for controlling sound.

Athearn N scale Big Boy announcement - Due June 2016... with and without sound.

I looked on the Athearn website and they say late November 2015. I'm not sure where the June date came from??

Per Athearn website and PDF, HO due in November, N due in June 2016
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

And of course, nothing at all about UP restoring 4014 or having moved it to Cheyenne - just the biggest railfan story of 2014.  They still list it at "Pamona". 

I sometimes think half the world is clueless.

Athearn has now changed their website using the June 2016 delivery date. They have some boxcars that are due in November 2015.
