Really a nice looking loco, and with sound and all. I'm wondering though, how protypical looking are the horns? the rest is so nice they kind of detract from the looks even though they are such a small part of it. May just be me??? I'm not too knowlegable on the C424

Cheers Willis
I was looking at some old pictures I had of BN C424's and C425's and the horns seemed to be placed different on all the units. I agree the pre-production model has some tacky looking horns, but if Atlas does as good a job on this as they did the GP-35 that shouldn't be an issue. My check book is already saying "Ow." :D
