Are the 4785 hoppers the same design that Intermountain announced a few years ago?

Yes.. and the ScaleTrains first run in HO and N have come and gone... While IM is still taking reservations..

Meant in the most constructive way possible - if they'd only change those couplers....

Yeah, I've been harping on his subject since their first locomotive release.  I figured they went back to their Athearn (McHenry) roots when they designed their large all-new coupler.  But "scale" is one thing it isn't :|

C&NW SD45 with non-dynamic brakes
Another vote for this in N scale.

An EL SD45 in N scale would be so nice.
If a Rivet Counter N EL SD45 is made I will buy every road number. They are so essential to the EL that they are almost necessary to model the road properly. If decided to, EL 3632 was painted in Bicentennial colors.
Also, EL 801-803 and their respective D&H schemes would be cool too, with the L shaped windows and all. I also model D&H, so all of those would be on the table for me as well.
Modeling the Erie Lackawanna and Delaware & Hudson in 1975, and Conrail and the Delaware & Hudson in 1981.

Damn.. that Quality logo cut my order from 6 to 2
... Needs more NO quality Conrail  :D

Doing a Conrail Quality Freight scheme is like:
Adding yellow stripes to a late 1990s paint schemes..
COTS boxes and ACI tags to 1960s schemes.

Easy to add items that cuts a sizable market segment for that scheme.

Hopefully R3 has Conrail Gray, and Conrail Green.

Great that they released the car!!

It's true, but... I know a whole bunch of people who model the CRQ era. Almost more than I know who do PRE Q stuff.

I'd like to register my desire for an N scale SD45 too. SD40s would be well received too, since Kato hasn't seen fit to run theirs more than once a decade.

I must have a dozen Kato SD45s, still wishing for something with less-porcine hoods. A non-Dash-2 SD40 with similar treatment would be the cat's meow for this '60s modeler.

This! Scale width hoods and non db for both SD40s and SD45s would bankrupt me...

NP in N scale with the unique four window cab and gyralight would be deeply appreciated as well.


GN units with those, please. And, of course, a host of BN and BNSF paint schemes on both the NP and GN bodies could follow.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Give me a Kodachrome or Speed Lettered SD45R in N scale any day! Heck maybe even the SD40M-2 variants though that might be a little tougher with door arrangements.

Or dare I say the Daylight 7399

None of the BN SD45s made it to the BNSF merger
