I'd buy a half dozen in N. Unless, of course, they release more road numbers.  :P

Wow, those are really fantastic.   $225 for DDC and sound- that is almost reasonable.

I love the open snow grates in the walkways of the CN units.  (~6:50 in the video.)

They look amazing, but why do they have them pulling 40ft boxcars with roofwalks at the end?   :lol:

(Oh, and what do you wanna bet this will be their 'never produced before in N scale' locomotive?)

From their FB page on their announcement yesterday...they are licensed to do these in N, but replied "'...maybe...someday" to a comment asking about these in N.

Haha.   Do you think that's serious, or just being coy?  I was surprised we didn't have that much speculation about what their loco would be.  Ask the same question about Kato and you'll have a 25 page thread here.

Yes, in UP and BNSF.  2 separate runs, 8 years apart....  :facepalm: :scared:

Why would it even be up for debate that these will be their "never before offered in N scale" engine? Of course they are being coy on FB. I can't imagine them funding the research and tooling for 2 completely different locos in different scales.
