Ran across this and thought it's a bit interesting. It's a Bombardier based on the German BR 101.

There is an article on the ALP46 power cars in a recent issue of Trains, I thought it was neat. I will have to search the car for that and let you know which issue it is.

This btw, could be an interesting project. As long as the overall dimensions are the same, it would require a few minor mods to Tillig's 101 and a new paint job. Other than that I can whip up the passenger cars in a few weeks and presto!

I think the BR 189 might be a better match. Tillig also makes a model of this one.

Hmmmm well wkipedia says "The ALP-46 is an electric locomotive built in Germany by Bombardier between 2001 and 2002 for use in the United States. It is derived from the German Class 101."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ALP-46

But I suppose "derived from" doesn't mean the dimensions aren't closer to the 189 :think:
