    I have the SD90MAC. It shares the same chassis and motor. Sweet engines. They are strong and fast, yet can run at very low speed.

    I got mine off Ebay too for 50 bucks. 90's a becoming quite rare now like the Kato dash 9's. I am looking for one in CEFX livery, almost impossible.

    Yeah, eBay,'s great to stock up on locos, I bought my first few locos through there.
    Also check out the For Sale section of this forum, Trainboard.com and Nscale.net, once in a while you'll run across someone who's selling off their whole collection for financial reasons...their loss is your gain!
