It has been reported through multiple sources that Kato announced several new releases at the manufacturer's breakfast at the recently completed N Scale Enthusiast convention in Salt Lake City. Perhaps the most intriguing report is that they apparently plan to release a 1950's era 20th Century Limited. While I haven't followed the NYC particularly closely, I am a big fan of vintage passenger trains, which certainly includes a major named train such as the 20th Century Limited. I've seen conflicting reports on the timing of this release, ranging from 2nd quarter 2019 to early 2020. Hopefully we'll see a more formal announcement from Kato in the near future, providing not only more details on the planned release schedule but also on the composition of the train. With respect to motive power, it was reported that they plan to release matching E7 locomotives, which should make a lot of Kato fans (myself included) very happy. If we include B units, the E7 production was the largest for any EMD passenger unit at 510 units total (barely edging out the E8 by 14 units). I haven't seen any reports regarding Kato's intentions to include B units. The NYC commonly ran their E7 units in either AB or AA configurations, so either would be prototypical. The 20th Century was also seen behind PA/PB power, so that may be another future option for Kato. Based upon a bit of internet searching, it appears that the following is representative of a correct 20th Century Limited consist for 1950: RPO/Baggage 4-4-2 sleeper x 4 10-6 sleeper x 3 Lounge Dormitory/Kitchen Diner 12 Double Bedroom x 3 5-DBR/Lounge/Obs. That would make for a 15 car consist, so perhaps Kato will take an approach similar to that taken with the Broadway Limited; an 11 car base set with a 4 car add on set. Please post additional thoughts, historical information and any additional release information (rumored or reported) within this thread. Thanks!
