After spending $110 or $190 for their locos (or whatever the "street" price turns out to be), does Kato really need to nick someone an additional $3 for the alternate numberboards? Can't Kato afford to include them in the box with the A-unit locos at no extra charge?

as opposed to the BLI loco (priced higher-'street' or otherwise)?...that may, or may not, actually work?
At least I KNOW that, when I take a Kato loco out of its box, place it on the track, and apply power, it will actually RUN...
...and run...
    ...and run...
        ...and run.

Who said anything about BLI?
Do they even make an FP7?

Now that we are getting so close to these sets being available I'm trying to decide what to order. I'm modeling the train on the Chicago-Milwaukee leg of the journey. Which would be more appropriate? It's pretty flat territory. Would it be pulled by just an AB set or an ABA set?

ABA as these shots at Winona, MN demonstrates.  :)

Of course later on (possibly post Olympian) a FP7-E9B-FP7 combo was common...
