    I took these yesterday. You can see the Skytrain track above them. I'm really surrounded by trains where I live. Anybody know anything about these? Like, do they come in HO or N? :)

    The lead unit is an SW1200, as was mentioned above. The trailing unit is an SW1500 and is also available in HO through Athearn.

    Shaywen, Life-Like makes an AWESOME SW9/1200 in both N and HO (I own an N scale one). And I can tell you that it runs incredibly smooth, can pull a TON of cars and is very nicely detailed. It can even (with some work though) be converted to DCC.
