Well Mr. Rineair, I apologize if I offended thee, BUT as I originally stated "...but I am viewing it on a smart phone...." The image that was available on my phone would not blow-up large enough to view accurately, i.e. the lettering became pixelated, henceforth I suggested that someone make comment. Access to my N&W Diesels Vols. #1 &2 and a larger version of Athearns' artwork was not available at the time I typed my e-mail.

It won't happen again.

The lettering matches the photos.

I wish modelers would do the research before making a making criticism - those who jump the gun.

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 system.

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.
