    Sorry Josh,I'm sure you'll find one soon.:thumb:

    Are you looking for one in UP colors or would any road do?There's a couple CSX units up for bid on E-Bay.

    The guy I bought this one from also had a SP unit,both with BIN's of $150.Needless to say they didn't last to long.:)

    WELL, it would be the 62nd engine on my roster;), but theres a show in Rockford on the weekend around the 25th:thumb:, so i am sure that unit will be higher then 62:D as i wont get it till April(i hope they don't move it back again:rolleyes:).

    Chris, i checked out the pics of the second run UP units, looks like they will be EXACTLY like yours:thumb:. sadly, they DID NOT change the ditch light placement, but i can live with that;). :D -Deano

    Strange,on their website they list the new UP's as having low ditchlights.Really though,even if they didn't they are beautiful engines and it doesn't bother me in the least.Here's hoping you get that beast soon Deano!

    Bachmann Santa Fe GP40 DC
    Bachmann Santa Fe GP40 DCC
    Athearn Santa Fe SD45-2T DCC (sound)... shweeeetttt.
    Athearn Southern Pacific SD45-2T DCC times 2 (very nice detail)

    My next Loco's will be Union Pacific. That ought to cover everything that blows past this area. I think I will stick to the Athearns. They make a nice affordable product.

    I have four engines...

    Atlas Master UP Gold 8-40C w/sound

    Kato BN SD70MAC

    Tower 55 Northern Pacific ES44DC w/sound

    And finally my BLI UP AC6000CW w/sound

    I don't have many,but the quality is there!I may end up selling the Atlas UP,I only need one UP engine and I want an CN,CNW,CP or BNSF engine.

    Hehe,I do the same thing as I don't want to take it in and out of the box and end up breaking it,it looks much better in person though.Yeah,I'm not doing nothing to mine,it's perfectly fine for my needs and I certainly wouldn't mess with the ditchlights.I guess some engines had the GPS dome and from my research apparently there's a few minor details that aren't quite prototypical,but nothing that would stop me from liking it.The important thing for me is how it runs and sounds,but it looks great anyways if you ask me.I think it's a steal also considering what people are paying for other models.Hopefully you'll get yours soon and post some pictures of it.

    I'm looking for an Undec or UP version with sound & DCC. I'll get one soon enough, its taken me almost a year to snag a RPP SD90/43MAC with passive bidding on eBay.

    No offense taken,but I'd probably have to get around $160 shipped for it since that's how much I paid for it.

    lol, why thin out your UP fleet now? you can double head the matching units.
