    Under their Kobo line, Kato has announced some cool custom locos. The price is hard to swallow at $185 per locomotive. (Locos will be painted for Rio Grande's Ski Train, CSX & Tri-Rail)

    I'm interested in in the Ski Train but the disclaimer on the Kato website scares me a little. "Due to the hand-made nature of this item, some minor blemishes and differences may be present from model to model"

    Anyone have any advice or experiences with the Kobo customs?

    Did they use ex-CZ cars for the prototype? If so, maybe another follow on Kobo offering???

    I have the Kobo P42 "Turn of the Century" loco and it looks really good! Having had that positive experience, I also ordered the Kobo New Mexico Railrunner engine.

    I have the Kobo GO Transit 'MP40PH' (actually the MP36), and it is very nicely done.
