    Saw this poll on another forum and thought i would bring and share it for the gauge to do also

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]Kato recently announced they would be offering their modern SD70ACe units in the Union Pacific heritage liveries... Who's going to be lining up for these ? Member these are N scale Units that were announced so far, NO HO units have been announced as of right now (but i sure hope they do them in HO as well)

    Pick the category that best suits your intentions and tell us what you think of this latest Kato offering.
    Also tell us which catagory you voted for and which ones you want

    Now me, i would like to get 5 of them so i voted for the "Five of them" category.

    I want the:

    UP American Flag
    SP Heritage
    CNW Heritage
    Rio Grande Heritage
    and the "Katy"

    This way i could run the UP American Flag on point with the Heritage behind it with perhaps one or 2 more locos behind it depending on the train hehehehe :mrgreen:


    Im exited KATO has released these units for production even though im not doing N scale right now, they still would be GREAT to have when i did start back up in N scale :mrgreen:

    Hopefully they will come out soon and hopefully they will now go on to make them in HO scale.

    I know I want three for sure.

    UP American Flag
    Rio Grande Heritage
    The Katy (cause the city I live in is Katy :) )

    I possibly may end up getting the C&NW and WP too.

    None. Any thundercab is too new for a 1970s layout.

    Since I now have a FrontRunner train, that puts my future layout at 2008+, so they are just right for me. :) And since they are western, even better ;-) Definately want to get at least the the UP Flag (as they seem to be all over the place) , but also want the Rio Grande and Southern Pacific.

    This was the last freight unit EMD did that had any sort of style:

    After that, the only freight loco they've cranked out with anything close to style is these old beasties:

    Squidbait,
    I always thought that GP60m's had a pretty unique look to them as well. I wonder if in 50 years we will think SD70ace's look pretty compared to the SD140's that UP will then own a couple of thousand of :)

    I'd kinda like to have them all; but they don't fit my railroad or my era, so I voted none.

    Well, the GP60M was OK,
    [​IMG]
    but really nothing new, since CN had done the safety cab back in '74 on it's GP40-2W's, GP40-2Lw's and GP38-2W's.

    I only liked about half the designs that they did. I was dissapointed in the paint scheme of the SP unit. I picked 3. I wish they would come out with it in HO though the Tower 55 engines are too $$$$$!
