Fan-tastic. When they (re-)issue the Skytop in UP colors I'll be all over it.

Nice.  Now, I am supposed to build (and finance) a layout over the next 12 months, so there might be a budget issue.  But I know a lot of people are very happy with this news.

Awesome.  An FP7 is also good news however I think they could have good for something more interesting.

Wonder if they might release a FP9A at some point.  Intermountain has 7's and 9's announced but we all know where that stands.... :facepalm:

My wallet is safe. I was hoping for the North Coast Limited.

BTW, what happened to the pike sized train? The one where there was a poll regarding the loco?

I wonder if it's too late to cancel my IM/Centralia Superdome order?

WOO HOO!!!  I will buy this run and hope for a second run in UP colors!  I had requested this train on Kato's "Suggest a Model" page along with the SDP40F and Amtrak Phase I cars in the past.  I REALLY love the fact that Kato does listen to its fans!!!

Wonder if they might release a FP9A at some point.

Why would they?  The only true FP9As were built for Canada, the only US units were four rebuilt from parts of EMD FTs for the Chicago & Northwestern.

I can't help wonder if they will be doing the Creek-series observation car and Super Dome in Canadian National as well... the dome could be useful in a couple of different schemes...

Now if Rapido does the FP9A...
