kato has done a number of eastern roads . like the ns c30-7,dash 9. then the whining and bashing starts wrong head light placement and so forth. but it is just fine for fvm to do the same thing and everyone is drueling about how great the engines are. please give me a break. I don't care for fvm well not buy from them so if you need to bash kato i will talk about fvm
I have a few Fox Valleys and they are nice locomotives but I will take a Kato any day.
Or maybe a GP40-2 with different loco numbers.
Can we get the FVM GP60's that I ordered in 2010...before we announce anymore new stuff? Or have those been cancelled?
I wouldn't be placing anybody on a pedestal right now. I have always preferred KATO but they have some strange ways...like surprise releases without any advanced warning, planning -nothing. I hope they wake up.
Best laugh I've had all day, I'll meet you in the playground after school :cute:
yeah laugh just shows your ignorance gtrail
Both brands have their plusses and minuses. One thing I wish all mfgers did was what FVM does with the GEVOs, no molded on grab irons! The small dimples as guides for drilling are near invisible compared to the ugly molded on grabs all other N mfgers go with (yes that includes your fabled Kato).
I do prefer Kato myself but I also have FVMs models and you know what? I can't tell a difference between them running wise and in all honestly I prefer the look of FVM and what they include in the painting (hey Mr Kato where's the warning stickers?).
If I'm ignorant then ignorance is bliss.
gtrail insulting me shows your ignorance. i did not insult anybody on this thread. but you chose to do so shows your ignorance. I will match my kato's to your fvm's any day so get over it and go away.
Get over it and go away? Yes sir sirry sir sir!
gtrail you are not worth my time or energy
Good thing I wasn't trying to be eh?
As far as I'm concerned anyway FVM could either be doing the SD70ACe/M-2 or SD40-2 (how many had dual headlights though?). Either way it'll be good for the scale as we really need a current SD40-2 and I'd love to get the new late 2011 and 2012 build ACes.
This thread will need to turn friendly immediately else posts will be deleted, people will be talked to (or more), etc.
Fair warning. No more please.

What is wrong with you people. TRAINS ARE TO BE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is one of the reasons I don't get on here anymore.
Model Railroading is fun. To many have forgotten that.
True so very true! :sad:
Your PC heritage unit is a beauty Scott, almost as pretty as her 1:1 scale big-sister!
Never stopped being fun here
Nice PC unit Scott, really looking forward to seeing the 10 ACe heritage units being done by someone and hopefully soon because the GEVOs won't tide me over for long...
30+ posts and a personal argument. C'mon, guys.
