    I have been looking around for undecorated F40PH locomotive. The only one i have came across was Bachmann's Spectrum ones but even those were on Ebay, which are the older run. I prefer to buy from an online store. Does Kato have undecorated F40PH? I would go with Kato anyday.

    My intention is actually to repaint it to the Tri-Rail livery.

    It is not in my era, so I'm not completely sure, but I don't think Kato ever made an F40PH. I think your choices are the Bachmann Spectrum and Lifelike toy.

    Hmm, i thought Kato did, i guess i have to go with Spectrum but do they manufacture undecorated ones? We've had that LL toy before in the club, very noisy and runs terrible. Good for beginners though.
