    You can expect more Amtrak products from Kato this February and March. The company recently announced plans to re-release its EMD F40PH Phase III "pre-ditch light" version. These engines are meant to match the newly announced re-release of Kato's Amtrak Amfleet II Phase III cars.

    EMD F40PH
    Kato last released the EMD F40PH in 2010. This new release will be available in three new road numbers and come in both DC ($115) and DCC ($155) versions.

    Some product features include: body-mounted KATO magnetic knuckle couplers, powerful five pole motor with all wheel electrical pickup and blackened wheels, and retooled bodies with over-cab A/C units and illuminated ditch lights.
