    Well, as predicted by several retailers, Lifelike has announced that they will be making the GP60 in several roadnumbers. This is a long-anticipated locomotive for many people. Lifelike will also be using the Accurail (accumate) couplers instead of Rapidos (another first for them). No word yet on compatibility of other couplers. These are not DCC-ready, like all LL diesels, but at least they'll have the split metal frame. Details on the following links. GP60.htm Pages/L-L-GP-60-Product-Page.htm

    Looks like it will be a nice looking engine, they are slowly getting the hint I guess, at least they will come with better looking couplers than before! Maybe by the next release they will have a DCC ready frame!

    It says split frame, which indicates it will be DCC ready, or at least DCC friendly not like the GP20.

    Is retooling the frames and specs all that hard for LL to do to make them DCC ready?????
    Is this day and age of DCC and all!!!!!
