Ohhhh, the GN E7 is tempting, even more so if it would be in the simplyfied paint scheme.

Yup! I am working with AZL to get the AAR side frames.

Thank goodness. I didn't want to say anything originally, but the numbers you chose for those were ones with AAR trucks instead of the Flexicoils.
Conrail did have Flexicoil equipped SW1500s but they were different numbers, and I think they also had frame mounted handrails too. I could be wrong about that second point.

Either way, I guess I now get to get my first Z scale equipment...

I was looking through the Z Monster site to fill out my order, and realized the BN release has the AAR side frames so they do exist.., so it looks like it was an oops in the mfg process on the CR units (maybe an assumption from the RDG units)....

Aaaand my model train budget is $400 lighter..   :D

Ed is correct, there were a few PC units with Flexicoil Trucks..


(From the RRPicturearchives.net site.)

But there didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to numbering, and 9541 and 9544 were not 2 of them.

Still a great looking model overall..

Hopefully we can convince Micro Trains to team up with Atlas and expand the SW1500 lineup. 

Otherwise we need to start an ANL campaign!

Just drop me an email. When I get spare AARs in, we can work on swapping them. Yes, AZL did make AAR trucks for the SWs. :)

Micro Trains N scale car for reference of scale.

The only quarrels I could bring up are.... the Flexicoil type Truck vs AAR (previously discussed) and the open handrail hole on the cab (which I didn't notice until I looked at the pictures.)

How does it run?  Can you run it nice and slow?
