As stated by Jon in the original post, this potentially affects not only Pan Am but MEC, B&M, etc.The Pan Am SD40-2s from the first release are still in stock at MBK:https://www.modeltrainstuff.com/N-Scale-Locomotives-s/1437.htm?searching=Y&sort=3&cat=1437&brand=Intermountain&show=30&page=1&search=%20pan%20amMark
Regardless of liscensing, the Pan Am SD40-2s were some of the worst sellers for Kato, I don't know why IM would chase that road. No one wants excess inventory sitting around. That's not good business.
And here thought from the title this thread was about some miracle number of cars an IM unit could tow behind it.
This, too. IM is well-known for dropping offered paint schemes if pre-orders are lacking, so I still feel the "licensing" assertion needs to be verified.
Just remembered ....Doesn't one of our moderators work for PAR?@Ian MacMillan ?
I consult for a large model airplane manufacturer who does indeed pay (significant) quarterly royalties on every Pan Am model produced and sold, FWIW.
