    I would know that answer since I own one. GREAT! I just got mine back around October and in green & yellow CN colors.

    I'm pulling 29 cars and one non powered GP9.

    Great choice, I hope you got a non power unit too. I love the GP 9 they look cool. Another advantage is they can run on my 0-36 curves with no problems.

    Ok so what road name and did you get premier or railking?

    its a railking, rock island, in the blue and white paint, just won it tonight on ebay, $200.00.

    no non powered unit yet, got to find one somewhere. im not sure yet if they made an rock island non power. i have noticed that mth dont always make non powered units in all the road names that they do powered ones, i think lionel is the same way, i think that this powered unit came out in 2006 if i remember right,
