This was announced some time ago. It'll be nice to have some new steam to play with, thats for sure. This looks like it may be a winner.

With traction tires and all drivers geared, it ought to pull well. I am a little disapointed they will be furnished with Accumates and not MT couplers. $123 is a good price. Unless of course they get blowed out on the Walthers site for $85 like the berks did. A lousy puller but brutally handsome and smooth running.
