I seriously doubt it..Athearn has not been doing too much in the way of new
locomotives in N Scale and they don't have GP7 or GP9 units.

Atlas and Bachmann are your choices to lobby..and the Bachmann unit is not
very well executed.

Athearn has announced four roadnumbers of N&W GP9's. Two will be Pevler Blue
and two in metallic Tuscan. All road numbers will be offere as both DCC
ready or with DCC and Sound. Sound will be Soundtraxx's Tsunami 2 sound


Road numbers are 502 & 508 in blue and 514 & 521 in Tuscan. Details will be
road number specific. Artwork appears that the scripted logo for the Tuscan
units will be on a separate photoetched plate. Hood lettering on the Tuscan
unit appears a bit off to me, but I am viewing it on a smart phone,
hopefully Messers Brewer, Painter or Nichols can comment.


MSRP will is $189.98 non sound and $289.98 with sound. Street prices will
vary. Tentatively scheduled to deliver in late January 2018.
