    I wonder if it would be worth it to make a Kato into an NJ transit unit.

    HECK YEA!

    I bought a Spectrum F40PH in NJT paint two years ago and I was really disappointed at how it looked. I only have one Kato F40PH right now (Amtrak #400) and that's going to stay the way it is.. So I'm going to grab another Kato sometime next year and repaint it for NJT.

    It should be pretty straightforward... Basically all you need to do is get rid of the Phase-III Amtrak stripes + letters and put on the NJT disco stripes + letters. Both the Amtrak and NJT paint has the same general layout for the black and silver areas so you don't need to do a complete repaint-- All the work that needs to be done are in the silver areas.

    I figure some judicious localized paint stripping (thinking of using an air-abrasive gun to do this) and re-airbrushing just the silver area with Floquil Platinum Mist, then applying the NJT disco stripes and letters, and I should have a nice NJT unit ready to go. :thumb:

    I am a bit nervous at the prospect of trying that though, because the Kato ain't cheap, and if I make a mistake and screw it up, it's a VERY expensive mistake. :oops:

    a few months agoi think there was a kato repainted into NJ Transit ( or may it was a walthers) but it had see through grills and everything on it. at that point i didn't want to buy it because i already had the bachmann one, and i was just buying an SD80 and AEM7 which was already costly. didn't want go broke. i put it on my birthday (tommorow)/ christmas list, but i probably didn't get it because my parents are crazy, and while they try to get what people want, they insist on variety, and not just the same old things (models in general for example). i'm not willing to spend my money just yet either. i just got back from that trainshow, and i want to grow my money tree up again, lol.

    Yea same here. I need to wait until next year to get that new Kato precisely because my money tree is stripped bare just about now. :D

    Heck, you are in a worse spot than me, because all I needed was just a token NJT train or two on my pike. You on the other hand have to have all the wild-and-wooley NJT stuff-- When can we expect to see something like an NJT GP40FH-2 or a PL42AC on your pike? I think nothing says NJT better than those wierd units. sign1

    you know i kept on passing up IHP's GP40FH-2s. I really need to grab one of those. I'll have to check Ebay for them. I was looking at it back in the summer when the shell was on display at the National Train Show. that was really cool stuff there.

    What i really want to do though, are those Arrow IIIs, but i wouldn't even know where to begin with those cars. those electric MU cars are so common place, i can't believe that manufacturers don't make them. only IHP makes them (Arrow Is and Silverliners and Metroliners [shell only])

    Speaking of the PL42ACs, i wonder how you'd build that. We are going to need those new double decker coaches while we are at it!

    Well At one time, I did have a small amount of HO Engines of 12 from Tyco, Athrean and Bachmann and 150 Cars. I'm down to just 16 cars now and a alot of track. I had to sell off to make child support one month in the mid 90's and never had a chance to rebuild. Now I live over seas and to expensive to have stuff shipped here. Darn living on disability is the pits.

    But I will get back into it once I win my Battle with the VA.

    As the cars I have a IHC set of Southern Passenger cars set of 6, and 2 cars each of custom box cars of the Armed forces. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard.
