My resistance has finally been broken Fran. Direct me to the nearest retailer. Athearn are really ahead of the rest of the game with these models.

 

Rich,

Both US, if you go for the non sound version you shouldn't get stung by customs (this has sound and I did get stung!)

 

http://www.modeljunction.info - UK retailer, but they probably wont have them in for about another 6 weeks if you can wait. Really good service though.

I love it Lone Star an alll my baby caught the Katy (Missouri Kansas Texas) and left me a mule to ride :((

 

Good one John, I must admit I like the yellow and green livery of the MKT, I'm not sure where UP got the red from, but it really looks good to me.

 

Damn! That is pretty! Rich - RESIST! You know you have to :)

 

Nothing wrong with a little experimenting with dark forces!

 

Fantastic Fran, why is it every time I see that livery it puts me in mind of a can of Doctor Pepper:D

 

Me too mate, even down to the way 'The Katy' is splashed across the side!

 

fran, as nice as she is, i will take your sulzer over her, any day of the week and twice on sunday!:)

 

I'll have to bring the two of them down to Brendan, stand them side by side and see what you think!

Katy 1st Generation diesels appear to have been painted red The Green and Yellow seems to date from the Barringer era, when he tried to modernise and revive railroads like the MKT & Rock Island.

 

The first generation Katy diesels included some odd reebuilds of Alco FA and RS units with EMD power units, some of the road switchers looked like a cross between an RS3 & a GP7.

 

Hopefully the BNSF & CSX will revive some of their classic schemes.

You're just lucky I didn't bring Miss Katy with me, otherwise your mind would've changed! ;)
