The MTB moto kit is presently on hold as the parts are currently required to fulfill orders for the T478.x models. Guess I should have updated that topic... Sorry.

I'd take one, it would allow me to model a S.P. branchline port ! Drawings look impressive !

This is spectacular news!

I would spring for two... possibly more.

While there are multiple schemes I could suggest, I'll only mention one, as that's what I'd put all my weight behind: original Canadian National green. I can supply photographs and possibly diagrams as needed.

My first thought was that you want to produce a locomotive with figures of locomotive engineers in cabin and the question is how many engineers do we need... :)

As for painting scheme - I meant red-and-WHITE, of course, not "red-and-black" :)

Black widow. Nice.

I might just take you up on that offer. I prefer the zebra stripe scheme, but transition era is probably a better bet.

Perhaps I'm just not as funny as I think I am...

That is some (potentially) great news! :thumbup: :dance:

I'd definitely buy one, two (or more) if they came in SP colors (any paint scheme).

Maybe without numbers or with decals for numbers?

I'll need half a dozens SD9s made next... :lol:

It's a great idea more manufacturers should use. I first encountered it back when I was working in Japanese-proto N scale, some of my Tomix equipment had decal sheets of numbers (got quite big for a Shinkansen set!). Certainly it'd simplify things for people who are buying multiple models.

I'll second that vote! And many of the EL's switchers lasted well into Conrail with the same paint, Conrail wasn't in a hurry to repaint a lot of their older units when they took over. A lof them never got blue paint with can openers on them, they were scrapped or traded in their 1970's paint scheme. If you made the decal sheets to include the "patched" units you can cover two roads with one paint job-


"Before" (1974)

"After" (1979)
