    612 & 617 are the steam-generator-equipped ones for your Sunnyland. 579 is a must-have. I had planned to do an Atlas GP-7 for 579. I gave that signal report for so many ham radio CW QSOs. I've already modeled 599!!!!

    According to the Athearn website, they're due late October, 2019.

    Heck. I don't even buy green bananas. Oct 2019? Oh well, gotta have 'em. Looks like I'll have to give up on the crunchy and go with smooth to save some coin.

    Preordered locomotives #s 579, 594 and 617 today. Spring Creek Model Trains rep had the figures off the top of their head because "people have ordered a lot of them". :) Good for us.

    I have to say that one of these boiler-equipped would be fun to have for Trains 20/21.

    Kirwhizkid, thanks a ton for posting this. Does anyone know which of the multi stripe numbers would most likely have been out west (ie with the QA&P)?
