SWEET! :thumb: The difference in the detailing is pretty evident.. In addition to being reliable runners, the other reason why I like to buy Athearn locos is because their trucks are some of the best-looking on the market. You will not find nicer EMD truck sideframes on the market than the Athearns unless you spend hundreds on a single brass loco. They are so nice, even Proto 2000 copied them (the Blomberg trucks on Proto 2000 Geeps are direct clones of the Athearns, right down to the gears). Anyway, looking forward to seeing your complete review and photos on how that puppy runs on your layout!
