YEAP!

By the way, it has been a while since you posted a progress photo on that project. EMD Demonstrator, I believe. Did someone have a sneak photo of the catalog cover?

Matt, I got an email today from MTH with a link that won't be active until next week. It had a picture of the catalog's cover. I'll try to add it here for you.

My EMD SD70ACe is a CSX version. I settled on that after some wrestling with choices. I flipped a coin between CSX and NS. I originally wanted the EMD demo scheme.

 I also built a GE EVO demonstrator. Mike Wolf said he wanted to build both models in G scale and sat on them for all this time. The G scale market is very funny on what sells. Either top end, or very cheap it seems? Years ago I talked to a guy who wanted equipment and he wouldn't spend $40-45 on a car of mine. He said he wouldn't spend over $20! Those types also want engines for less than $50. I told him "good luck on that".

Why go back to DCC when I have DCS!

This is the last look of the SD70ACe's progress. I painted out the bottom black, and put her on the rails to work. I said I'd finish it during the winter and here it is summer now! ( like 2 years later... )

& back at last post!:

and then my attention went to the GE EVO

Glad to see MTH producing again. Wonder if they'll ever make Gauge One Scaletrax (with proper tie spacing).  I have a few pieces of Gargraves 2 rail 'G scale' track that appears to be the proper size for large scale American prototypes and really looks GOOD!

Joe, that catalog is active.

I really can't decide on NS, Demo, or DRGW scheme SD70ACe.

I haven't seen a store link to it yet so I guess I still have time.

As one who has an addiction to SD70ACe's, I recommend BOTH the Demonstrator and the UP/DRGW schemes. Wait. You're back east. You need the NS and the Demonstrator. But I've seen UP in your consists. You better play it safe and get all three.
