Welcome to the late July edition of the Scoot...

Summer is moving fast and only a few days until the kids go back to school.  Crazzy.
The edition is very brief but there is some very 


from king Kato!

A few other announcements to note as well...

Enjoys those last few days of summer fun!

Now Boarding, Track 1...


Kato has unofficially announced a spectacular new N scale Steam Locomotive...

About The Model

Coming soon - the most recognizable and famous UP Steam Locomotive, the FEF (Four-Eight-Four), coming late 2014/Early 2015 from Kato USA! 

Featuring a number of revolutionary design innovations, including 
  • a coreless motor with dual flywheels for silky-smooth side rod operation at any speed (even a slow crawl!)
  • inside bearing wheels (where appropriate)
  • a special articulated undercarriage on the unique, 14-wheel Tender to allow the locomotive to navigate tighter curves and S-bends!

Pre-order now for what is sure to be an exceptional new model from SBS4DCC.  

Kato has not announced pricing yet but I would expect the MSRP to be around $250-$300 based on past products.  Price will be updated once the information becomes available.

Delivery is expected in January or February of 2015.

Everyone will want this beautiful model so be sure to reserve yours today!
