Can it be true? Have a gander at the bottom of this page... http://www.i-sng.com/On3/On3_Locomotives/Die_cast_loco/die_cast_loco.html Like many others, I'm waiting for the Bachmann 4-4-0. Mostly for financial reasons, as I suspect they'll be at least half the price of the MMI version. I know I'd want two for my line. I am overjoyed to hear that MMI is coming out with a 2-6-6-2. I am now seriously contemplating dumping my plans of purchasing a Model Power (Ex-Mantua) 2-6-6-2, the Tsunami chip, the Backwoods Minitures 2-6-6-2 modification kit, and the slope-back tender and trucks...the combination of which would most likely be eerily close to the MSRP of the MMI RTR unit. Also, when the MMI version finally showed up, my Mantua/Model Power version would probably still be on the workbench, if started at all.
