I'm crushed! No 20-cylinder 645s! What are us SD45 fanatics going to do? :trollface:

Cool stuff. Could actually model the locomotive breaker yard in the next town from us.

Thanks for these, as someone who wants to model a mid 70's locomotive shop, these are great!
(Though I must agree about the lack of 20 645s. That would be awesome If they were made!)

I picked up one of these (two really, one loaded prime mover and one without cylinders). The quality is very nice. I'm planning on using one for a flatcar load and one to put inside an engine (doors open). It should be fun.

They list N scale as 1:144, 1:150 and 1:160.  Which of those 3 scales are they actually printing in?  Do I get to choose?  If so, there was nowhere to do that in the shopping process.  Things just went into the cart as "N scale" but everywhere I found a definition of "N scale" it listed all 3 scales.
