Kato should focus on NS C44-9W's, SP AC4400's and bringing out the AC4400 and SD70MAC in CSX YN3.
Kato has a sale on unpainted c44-9w's shells. I think they were 5 bucks each. I think they had the ace and mac shells too.

Looks like most of those are either sold out, or for the very old C44-9Ws with the rapido couplers.

FWIW, Kato does not make a C44-9W shell that is correct for NS.

This sale has been going on a long time. I bought $5 C44-9W shells 5 years ago.  The problem is that none of the current shells match the NS body - no high headlights mainly.  This has been talked about many time over the years.  IIRC the shells that I bought which were the closest matching the number of steps and the handrail size are now sold out - just checked, the #921310 shell with High NB, 5-Step, Wide HR is indeed sold out.

I emailed Intermountain yesterday and asked if the N scale Tier 4 engines would have dimples and buyer-installed grabs or come with grabs installed like the SD40-2s.

Here was the response I received this morning:

"The N Scale Tier 4 GEVo project design is currently being reviewed and we will shortly announce a
full list of features we will incorporate in this new model.

The InterMountain standard is to offer fully assembled models, so it is very likely our Tier 4 will have
fine wire grab irons installed as done on our N Scale SD40-2.  Our goal is to represent each of the
design and detail variations of the N Scale Tier 4 as closely as we did on our HO Scale version."

Maybe they realized there were some duplicate numbers with the scale trains model or if there is something they could add easily that scale trains didn't have ion theirs

Hey, Jim, how is your FVM fleet doing?

I just hope Intermountain keeps this mostly FVM as it started.

It seems the Intermountain HO scale Tier 4 Gevos went very quickly from announcement to delivery. Maybe they were moved to the front of the line? Maybe they'll do the same in N?
