CN Transcontinental from Kato

I guess it's gonna be a good year for Canadian passenger train modelers. First Rapido's Canadian sets and now Kato enters the north of the border passenger car wars.

Nothing but a curiosity interest here, but it's a fugly hot Saturday in the South so I'll start the rumors, innuendo, and complaints thread for the experts to chime in on.

Restock? I would swear that one of my friends bought this set last year.

When I was on the Kato website purchasing parts last month, they still had the CN sets listed, and checking just now, still do-

Which leads me to think they still have a few in the warehouse.
