New Products this month and arriving soon

News from Kato - PA's are Next

Kato has announced that their next production run will be ALCO PA-1 and PB-1's. Expected delivery is May of this year. These will be released in the following road names:

Santa Fe - Red & Silver Warbonnet
Erie Lackawanna - Gray & Maroon
New York Central - Lightning Stripe
Pennsylvania - Brunswick Green / Five Stripe
Southern Pacific - Daylight
Union Pacific - Yellow & Gray
Wabash - Blue & Gray

Depending on the road name they will be released as individual A-units, A-A sets, & A-B sets. Other expected features are large or small number boards and single or dual headlights again depending on the road name. Kato announced that these would be ready for DCC, my guess is this will be done similar to the C44-9W's. Anticipated retail price is $90-$94 for individual A-units and $180-$184 for two unit sets.

As Kato has done lately we expect these to be another limited run. N Scale Supply will begin taking reservations on these immediately. Our expected price will be around $70 per unit, maybe lower but until we find out the exact retail price and availability through the distribution channel we cannot determine our price yet.

Bachmann Doodlebugs

Bachmann Doodlebugs should be arriving later this month. Expected retail price is $60, N Scale Supply price will be around $41. The following road names will be available:

Part # Road Name
81451 Undecorated
81452 Painted, unlettered
81453 Union Pacific
81454 B&O
81455 PRR
81456 Santa Fe
81457 GN
