New CN Wide Cab GP38-2 from Athearn

Earlier this month I wrote about how this is a great time to be a Canadian model railroader. With Athearn's anouncement of a new CN wide cab Genesis line GP38-2, it just got better!

Athearn introduced its newest locomotive at the Amherst Railway Club's show on January 28. The first four units will be in Southern Pacific, MoPac, CN and Southern (high hood). Delivery is slated for late 2012.

But it's the CN unit that has Canadians excited. This is a great addition to the growing line-up of products for modellers in this country.

  1. It looks beautiful but I sure hope the production model has scale-sized ditch lights!
