ScaleTrains' new SD45's

1960's horsepower
... and accurate.

I had a Bachmann SD45 for some time, but it was nowhere near accurate -- wrong numbering, wrong light package, etc.
In fact, it wasn't DCC, so I never used it, and it got donated to the local Boys Club.

ScaleTrains is taking pre-orders for them in a handful of roads, in several cab numbers, e.g., SCL, Pennsy, C&NW, SP.
They're road and number specific, and totally accurate with numbering, light packages, etc. No photos yet, but there's a YouTube video. They look superb.

RivetCounter's are $275 w/ESU Loksound... $185 for "DCC ready".
I put in an order for two in Southern Pacific paint -- one w/sound, and one "Ready" to work in consist.
L.S. -- Southern Pacific/Cotton Belt/Frisco
"Route of the octopus"

I was hoping they were going to come out with a GP40,and with them doing the CSX SD40-3 that a GP40-3 would be in the works. They seem to put out more than Intermountain.If they don't start cranking out models that they have pre order they're going to be behind the times.
