     Welcome to the Kato booth! Feel free to drop a message into the chat and we'll answer any questions or comments you may have as we get them!

Ron Mc -  04-17-2021 04:14
     Is there a curve turnout in the near future?

-  04-17-2021 04:19
     Not currently planned, no

Bertz -  04-17-2021 04:19
     Hi,  I am beginning to design my new N scale layout.  My plan is to use Unitrack.  However I am finding it difficult to locate your design template in stock from resellers.  Are you still producing these? When do you expect that they might be back in stock?

-  04-17-2021 04:21
     The design template is out of production right now. In the future we'll look into doing a new version, since the old one is extremely out of date

JordanK4501 -  04-17-2021 04:21
     Are there any plans to do a SD70m-2 in n scale given the recent CN heritage unit?

-  04-17-2021 04:21

Ron Mc -  04-17-2021 04:22
     Any plans on expanding the available turnout sizes to ab 8 or a 10?

Bertz -  04-17-2021 04:22
     okay thank you.

-  04-17-2021 04:28
     We'll be going live in just a few minutes!

Dave -  04-17-2021 04:33
     You do have people watching, the count is not accurate

-  04-17-2021 04:33
     We're live now, please click on the video above (you may need to reload the page)

my n scale layout -  04-17-2021 04:33
     when will the pocket series be shipped?

-  04-17-2021 04:33
     Oops, thanks Dave! This is a first for us :)

bdw trains -  04-17-2021 04:33
     we can see and hear you..even though it says zero views

Dave -  04-17-2021 04:34
     About 50+ people on your page right now

DonH -  04-17-2021 04:34
     Hi - Question not related to the video...  I'm new to N after experience in HO... 2 questions about your freight couplers - 1) do they interoperate well with MicroTrains and MicroTrains clones, or do most people change the couplers if they want to do that, and 2) can you use a pick for uncoupling like in HO?

Ron Mc -  04-17-2021 04:35

Ron Mc 12:22 pm

Any plans on expanding the available turnout sizes to an 8 or a 10, something to accommodate longer cars and locos like the sd 80 and 90?

-  04-17-2021 04:36
     DonH, our knuckle couplers should connect with Microtrains couplers, some people do change out the couplers just to make it a little more precise

-  04-17-2021 04:36
     Ron Mc - As far as we know, there are no plans in Japan for additional turnout sizes

Doug -  04-17-2021 04:36
     With regard to T-Trak, our club has a large T-Trak modular layout that continues to grow. The one thing I would love to see is a Main Line Signal set-up that functions with DCC. Hopefully this can be passed to the powers that be.

DonH -  04-17-2021 04:36
     thanks - I'm literally just starting in N - really like your products so far

-  04-17-2021 04:37
     Doug - This is something we've been getting a lot of requests for, so it's certainly something we're going to be passing along to Japan

EspeeGoldenState  -  04-17-2021 04:38
     Any news on the Union Pacific Big Boy?

-  04-17-2021 04:38
     It's in the design phase right now, probably something to expect in 2022

GeminiDSM -  04-17-2021 04:38
     Any chance of getting Dio-Town kits back in the US? Love the product

-  04-17-2021 04:40
     GeminiDSM - The DioTown kits were produced by a factory in China that shut down a few years back - we've been working on having the tooling moved back to our factory and modified so they can be used in our own injection machines to be reproduced again in the future, but it'll be a bit before the full line is available again

sbaker -  04-17-2021 04:41
     I read in a railroad mag that some one used a kato motor in a diffrent engine. I have a minitrix 4-6-2 steam loco It was running rough and i tried to clean it and broke the motor brush.  The motor is square and I need a new one can i buy one

-  04-17-2021 04:43
     As far as we're aware you can't drop a Kato motor into a minitrix engine. That's not really something we can help you with.

sbaker -  04-17-2021 04:44
     Do youknow who I can contact

-  04-17-2021 04:44
     I'm afraid not

-  04-17-2021 04:45
     I would suggest contacting Minitrix

Jon M -  04-17-2021 04:45
     Hello from Georgia! Great job with the other N scale steam locomotives you've done... I'd like to express interest in N scale C&O steam locomotives, if you might consider producing them. :)

-  04-17-2021 04:48
     Has anyone ever built a T-Trak or N-Trak module in the chat?

Jon M -  04-17-2021 04:49
     I do have a few TTrak modules, an N-trak bridge/gate module, and a couple oNeTrak modules.

-  04-17-2021 04:49
     Very nice!

Sandy Smith -  04-17-2021 04:50
     Are there any plans to build more TOFC handlers in N scale?

-  04-17-2021 04:50
     Not at this time

John Farrow -  04-17-2021 04:50
     Really enjoying watching this while I work on my own railroad in the UK, not often we get a view over here of the WGH shows. Cheers guys. SomewhereInSoCal

-  04-17-2021 04:51
     Thanks John, glad you're enjoying it!

Sandy Smith -  04-17-2021 04:51
     I wrote an article about how terrific they are for N Scale railroading magazine and got a strong reader response.

Benoît -  04-17-2021 04:52
     Hi, +1 to John. Currently enjoying the show from France.

joepetrick5@yahoo.com -  04-17-2021 04:52
     are these modules all the same size being width and length ?  And are these modules purchased thru kato or hobby store.

Benoît -  04-17-2021 04:52
     Are these TTrak kits available in Europe?

-  04-17-2021 04:53
     Joepetrick - These kits are standard sized to T-Trak specifications, yes. They can be bought either direct from our online store or through hobby stores that carry Kato products

-  04-17-2021 04:53
     Benoit - they should be! I don't know if any of our european distributors have ordered any, but they are certainly available to them

-  04-17-2021 04:54
     We sell through Gaugemaster, Noch, and Lemke in Europe

Benoît -  04-17-2021 04:54
     Thank you!

Joe -  04-17-2021 04:56
     I’m new to the model railroad hobby and this question had been at the back of my mind for a while. Are the the Kato unitracks compatible with locomotives and cars made from different companies?

Benoît -  04-17-2021 04:57
     Yes, Joe. I have several different brands on ly layout and they all run fine!

Sandy Smith -  04-17-2021 04:58
     I have an ancient Atlas branded locomotive but has a Kato chassis.  Are there repair options available from Kato?

-  04-17-2021 04:58
     Joe - Absolutely. You can use any N gauge locomotive or cars on our N gauge Unitrack, same with HO

-  04-17-2021 04:59
     Sandy - For Atlas OEM products you would have to contact Atlas. All of the product, parts, and molds were sold to Atlas when our factory manufactured them 30+ years ago

NikSigwald -  04-17-2021 04:59
     Are you planning on releasing double modules?

-  04-17-2021 04:59
     Nik - Perhaps in the future

JB -  04-17-2021 05:01
     Is T-Track only for N Scale? Are there HO scale modules available? (Columbus, OH)

-  04-17-2021 05:02

JB -  04-17-2021 05:02
     Thank you

Joe -  04-17-2021 05:03

BDW Trains -  04-17-2021 05:03
     why do you guys not post a lot of videos on youtube these days

Jonathan S -  04-17-2021 05:04
     Are you considering expanding the Amtrak line to include the additional Viewliner IIs and Superliner IIs?

OnATrainNow -  04-17-2021 05:05
     It was great meeting you in person two years ago, look forward to being able to visit the booth in person next time!

BDW Trains -  04-17-2021 05:05
     miss your vids..ill stop by again. keep up the great work guys

-  04-17-2021 05:05
     Jonathan - That's a plan for the future, yes

-  04-17-2021 05:05
     BDW Trains - Thanks!

-  04-17-2021 05:05
     OnATrainNow - Hopefully sooner rather than later!

Matt -  04-17-2021 05:08
     Any updates on the ho scale viewliner baggage car that you teased earlier? will you consider ho scale viewliner sleepers?

Sandy Smith -  04-17-2021 05:10
     Can you use the Uni Tram track on a T-trak module?

Joe -  04-17-2021 05:10
     Are there plans for a an N scale model of the new Amtrak charger engine?

OnATrainNow -  04-17-2021 05:11
     Those new ALCs look good. I am looking forward to seeing those on the rail and my train room

Sofiya Valyuk -  04-17-2021 05:11
     hello! can I know where I can buy this trains?

-  04-17-2021 05:11
     Sandy - you certainly can, but not for the primary track which has to be at a certain standard spacing. Some people do use Unitram track on additional tracks with expanded modules

Jim L -  04-17-2021 05:11
     Is there away to adjust the feet when the modules are together without having to take the modules apart to get to the feet?

Charley -  04-17-2021 05:14
     Does Kato offer HO locomotive mechanisms (without shells)? I'm looking for a power unit to build a powered head-end baggage car to assist a brass steam loco with limited pulling power.

-  04-17-2021 05:15
     Charley - We do not, I'm afraid.

Richie -  04-17-2021 05:15
     Is there something that can be done with the 90 degree crossing to make the trains run more smoothly across it?

Espee4ever(Terry) - Indiana -  04-17-2021 05:17
     Hello from Crown Point, Indiana. Someone may have asked already but does Kato have any plans on doing any HO versions of the Metra Gallery Cars and perhaps Caltrain Versions of the Gallery Cars

-  04-17-2021 05:18
     Terry - Not at this time

Glen -  04-17-2021 05:18
     Any chance for N-scale RDCs?

-  04-17-2021 05:18
     Glen - I'm afraid not. They have been discontinued.

Glen -  04-17-2021 05:18
     Thank you

Espee4ever(Terry) - Indiana -  04-17-2021 05:21
     Wow! Okay.

Glen -  04-17-2021 05:21
     Any chance for an individual CN sky-observation car from the Canadian set?

-  04-17-2021 05:22
     Glen - We sell these in our online store, actually

EspeeGoldenState  -  04-17-2021 05:22
     Any chance for a Armour Yellow and Gray Olympian Hiawatha?

-  04-17-2021 05:23

-  04-17-2021 05:24
     Glen, the above link should go to our online shop with the Individual cars

NikSigwald -  04-17-2021 05:24
     Using the little metal pins to hold down the track works while the glue is drying too.

JB -  04-17-2021 05:28
     Very nice gentlemen, thank you!

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 05:28
     any chance of zooming on the module to see the different parts?

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 05:29
     yes, that one

John Farrow -  04-17-2021 05:30
     Genera question…. Can we PLEASE get some N Scale California cars?! I’m willing to offer bribes! Haha

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 05:31
     thank you

Ozzie Pramwew -  04-17-2021 05:31
     when will the new HO viewliner baggage car be out approximately?

NikSigwald -  04-17-2021 05:32
     Once plastered, I've had no problems with drilling through the shaper sheet.

-  04-17-2021 05:32
     Ozzie - No approximate dates right now

JB -  04-17-2021 05:32
     Give them a raise!

-  04-17-2021 05:33
     JB - we agree!

NikSigwald -  04-17-2021 05:33
     I vote raise too

JB -  04-17-2021 05:33
     LOL 😇

JB -  04-17-2021 05:34
     You are still,live!

David -  04-17-2021 05:34
     do you guys realize that you are still live!!!

Canuck -  04-17-2021 05:34
     LOL... You guys...

Randy -  04-17-2021 05:34
     I would like to second Joe's question: "Are there plans for a an N scale model of the new Amtrak charger engine?"

JB -  04-17-2021 05:35
     Offline now

-  04-17-2021 05:35
     The joys of figuring out new technology!

David -  04-17-2021 05:35
     sadly, not a good session. that;s why there should be REHEARSALS!

jior -  04-17-2021 05:35
     are you still considering any more n scale steam locos, big boy/challenger?

Randy -  04-17-2021 05:41
     Will we ever get a two-tone gray FEF-3?

-  04-17-2021 05:41
     Randy - maybe you'll get the answer to that later today!

-  04-17-2021 05:42
     David - The joys of live television! ;)

Roger T -  04-17-2021 05:43
     Is Kato planning any new HO products, or just N scale?

-  04-17-2021 05:43
     We are planning new HO products, yes

-  04-17-2021 05:44
     We'll be logging out of chat for a bit, but will be back to answer questions in about 45 minutes

Larry Romaine -  04-17-2021 05:55
     When will the sound equipped N scale SD70m's be available. I have a UP on order.

Erik94 -  04-17-2021 06:19
     Hello! Please bring more Kato HO unitrack track. I love the Kato HO unitrack! :) Please make more with concrete ties and more turnouts and double slip crossings

-  04-17-2021 06:24
     We'll be back with another live presentation shortly! Stay tuned

-  04-17-2021 06:32
     Hey Kato, thanks for stopping by to say hello earlier at our booth! :)

-  04-17-2021 06:32
     Hi Alex! -Drayton

-  04-17-2021 06:32
     Hello Scale Trains! Always happy to support our fellow manufacturers ;)

-  04-17-2021 06:33
     Us too! Hope all is well up in Illinois.

-  04-17-2021 06:33
     Hey Drayton! Great presentation today!

-  04-17-2021 06:33
     Thank you!

-  04-17-2021 06:34
     Michael is a true Bob Ross for model railroad design!

-  04-17-2021 06:35
     Larry - For your question on the SD70M's with decoders...hopefully within the next few months once we receive decoders from ESU

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 06:39
     very nice, greyhound 8444

Randy -  04-17-2021 06:39
     This is great!  Actually get to watch the answer to my earlier question.  Thank you!!

Erik94 -  04-17-2021 06:40
     Please bring more Kato HO unitrack track. Please make more with concrete ties and more turnouts and double slip crossings would be great!

Glen -  04-17-2021 06:42
     What is the link to the on-line store?

-  04-17-2021 06:42
     Glen - https://katousa.com/onlineshop/

ecl5312 -  04-17-2021 06:44
     Hi Kato, Do you have any promotions running? The double stacked N  gauge gunderson Maxi-i hoppers in the featured video look great.

ecl5312 -  04-17-2021 06:44
     Also, when will the kato flex track be available?

-  04-17-2021 06:45
     ecl5312 - We are asking that you go through hobby stores (including ones on this show) to purchase our products. We are not offering any promotions for this show

-  04-17-2021 06:45
     In addition, the Flex Track will be available in the summer 2021

ecl5312 -  04-17-2021 06:45
     ok sounds good thank you

andyzimmerman -  04-17-2021 06:51
     Are you producing any Mikados with Sound? I have a couple of the earlier versions and would love a DCC wit sound. What other Steam engines are you planning

-  04-17-2021 06:54
     The FEF-3 two-tone gray locomotive, as well as GS-4 "post war" Black and Daylight locomotives

-  04-17-2021 06:54
     We do not have any Mikado's with sound

Samuel Smetko -  04-17-2021 06:54
     How about for the future a HO CB&Q Pioneer Zephyr 3-unit set?

Randy -  04-17-2021 06:55
     How about  unskirted black GS-4?

-  04-17-2021 06:55
     Sam - Not at this time

Samuel Smetko -  04-17-2021 06:55

-  04-17-2021 06:55
     Randy - Unfortunately we won't be producing an unskirted GS-4 at this time :( good suggestion though!

Randy -  04-17-2021 06:57
     I'll keep hoping.

andyzimmerman -  04-17-2021 06:57
     I run a lot of Great Northern Engines, and was hoping to hear about something that they had in use. like the Pensy railroad they were big on the Belpaire fireboxes. Many Steam engines do not have those. Was hoping to see some Steam era engines that I can use... Love Kato products. keep up the great work

tony -  04-17-2021 06:59
     will you be doing the UP big boy?

-  04-17-2021 07:00
     Tony - We are prepping for the Big Boy in N Scale but it will be some time before we have any definitive data on it yet

tony -  04-17-2021 07:00
     very well, wondering also if there would be a chance for more N scale switchers. sw1500 comes to mine

tony -  04-17-2021 07:00

-  04-17-2021 07:01
     Tony - Not at this time

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 07:01
     will Kato be doing another run of the Heavy Mikados soon?

-  04-17-2021 07:01
     Nicholas - Not at this time, if we ever do in the future we'll need to re-tool it to be DCC friendly

Randy -  04-17-2021 07:01
     I understand in addition to the added detail work, the frame itself would need re-tooling (but would still be nice to see).

Kurt -  04-17-2021 07:03
     Any plans for HO Chicago &  streamlined passenger cars or trainsets?

Wyoming02 -  04-17-2021 07:03
     Any consideration to creating a turbine sound module for soundbox?

-  04-17-2021 07:03
     Kurt - Most likely not in HO Scale

Kurt -  04-17-2021 07:03
     Chicago and Northwestern, sorry

-  04-17-2021 07:03
     Wyoming02 - Hopefully in the future!

Richard -  04-17-2021 07:04
     Pleased to hear that a two tone grey FEF is planned.  Might there be a two tone grey passenger car set to match?

-  04-17-2021 07:05
     Richard - This will be a 1970's variation (#8444) so this will, particularly, match more of the yellow schemes of the passenger cars

-  04-17-2021 07:05
     But possibly in the future!

-  04-17-2021 07:06
     Here's a link of the GS-4 and FEF-3 racing up Cajon Pass in 1989 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qD_uGmVsHc

Richard -  04-17-2021 07:06
     Also, a while back there was a survey about US prototype trolleys and the PCC was most popular choice.  Is there any plan to do those to match the Unitram track sets?

-  04-17-2021 07:09
     Richard - Hopefully at some point! Japan does have some LRV's that can run with the UNITRAM sets at this point. A better description is being explained on the video

Samuel Smetko -  04-17-2021 07:09
     I would be fun If you made an HO EMD E5A & B.

Ozzie  -  04-17-2021 07:13
     is there an estimated time for when the HO viewliner baggage will be out?

-  04-17-2021 07:14
     We're still in negotiation with Japan on the project so we won't know more for a few more months so stay tuned!

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 07:15
     n scale amtrak chargers (SC-44)?

-  04-17-2021 07:16
     Nicholas - Currently working on!

Randy -  04-17-2021 07:18
     Hoe about an E7 B-unit for the 20th Century Limited?  (Not to mention E7 A's & B's for SP & UP)

Nicholas -  04-17-2021 07:19
     thanks for the info. Wish it was coming out sooner but an "in the works" is better than nothing.

MAXZORIN85 -  04-17-2021 07:20
     Any plans on more Amtrak MHC runs or BN SD40-2s without ditch lights?

-  04-17-2021 07:21
     Max - Not at this time

smalltimecruiser100 -  04-17-2021 07:22
     Can you attach Kato track to Bachmann ez track

-  04-17-2021 07:22
     Our track is not really compatible with EZ Track

Jo -  04-17-2021 07:22
     Do you know if we're going to see the Amtrak Siemens Charger engines in the future?

-  04-17-2021 07:23
     Jo - As said earlier in the chat, we're trying to work on it

smalltimecruiser100 -  04-17-2021 07:23
     How can you tell Kato DC engines from DCC engines?

B Kolya -  04-17-2021 07:24
     Do all or any new production locomotive handrails still fit in, with, and for old production locomotives?

Jo -  04-17-2021 07:24
     sorry i wasn't here for that part

-  04-17-2021 07:24
     Our boxes will be labeled with either -DCC (TCS or Digitrax DCC) or -LS (ESU LokSound) if they have them pre-installed. If they don't have that, they're just analog.

-  04-17-2021 07:25

     Any thoughts on running some circus equipment.   The observation car and several of the sleepers from the 20th Century limited ended up in Ringling Brothers service.   A 4 car set with 3 sleepers and the observation car would make a good add on to the Micro-Trains blue line circus train from a few years ago.  (If not, I bought cars to repaint... )

smalltimecruiser100 -  04-17-2021 07:25
     I meant when looking at your online catalog, how do you tell

Randy -  04-17-2021 07:26
     For SP and UP E7's (A's and B's) a "standard" or "generic" version like was done with the E8's?  (Could also be done in several other roads).

-  04-17-2021 07:26
     Small time - It will say ESU LokSound or DCC if it has them installed

-  04-17-2021 07:26
     Paul - We do not have any plans to do a circus train or cars

smalltimecruiser100 -  04-17-2021 07:27
     Does Kato have curved n scale bridges

ted f -  04-17-2021 07:28
     Can I suggest dong the 12th Zephyr car, a 5-comp. 6blbr car it replaced t he 16 section sleeper which were rebuilt into flattop coaches with original name.   I have one version of every train-in-a-box so far.    How about the North Coast Limited?

-  04-17-2021 07:29
     Ted - Thank you for the suggestion

Samuel Smetko -  04-17-2021 07:29
     Any future HO products?

Randy -  04-17-2021 07:29
     Thank you Michael!

-  04-17-2021 07:29
     Sam - Stay tuned

Samuel Smetko -  04-17-2021 07:29
     Thank you

Lloyd -  04-17-2021 07:32
     Does Kato make or have any plans to make trolly cars...either Brill or PCC cars?

-  04-17-2021 07:32
     Lloyd - Hopefully in the future

Lloyd -  04-17-2021 07:33

     Benoit - Congratulations!!! :)

NikSigwald -  04-17-2021 07:34
     Congrats Benoit!

Benoît -  04-17-2021 07:34
     Thank you!

Benoît -  04-17-2021 07:35
     Congratulations to you too, Nik!

andyzimmerman -  04-17-2021 07:35
     Awesome, I enoyed it!! Thanks to everyone that voted and participaed!!

Paul -  04-17-2021 07:35
     Ok, I have one more suggestion: Pullman Plan 4153 14-4 sleepers.  Corrugated versions were owned by MKT,Frisco, and Southern.  Smooth side versions were owned by KCS,MP, TP, and B&O.  The MKT/Frisco/MP/TP cars were used on B&O and PRR trains in interline service.  The B&O cars were also used in those pools (PRR didn't own any) Some of the Frisco cars went to Canada.  

NikSigwald -  04-17-2021 07:37
     Thanks Benoit. Congrats to you to Andy!

Nick N  -  04-17-2021 07:47
     Hey guys, I may have missed it but is there any update toTo the timeline for the HO Amtrak view liner baggage car release and any additional Amtrak cars for HO scale? Thanks!

Bremner  -  04-17-2021 07:48
     Hi, any chance for more unitram track?  Especially single track options? I model 1950's N Scale traction

-  04-17-2021 07:48
     No timeline for the HO Viewliner Baggage cars, but they are coming!

Nick N  -  04-17-2021 07:50
     @KATO awe man ok thanks. Still excited and anxious for them. The more HO Amtrak the better! I have HO money to spend 🤓

-  04-17-2021 07:54
     Bremner - I don't think there are any plans right now for any single track Unitram - that's all handled out of Japan so we don't always have all the info on track development here.

Mike -  04-17-2021 07:55
     Do you know when the Kato ‘N’ Scale Santa Fe Super Chief Passenger Set will be back in production?

Mike -  04-17-2021 07:56
     I would like to order that Kato set.

Bremner  -  04-17-2021 07:57
     Thanks, what about a an N Scale E7B or FP7 without the witerazation hatch?

-  04-17-2021 07:58
     Mike - nothing planned right now, we just sold out of the last production late last year so a re-run would be a few years off at least.

Mike -  04-17-2021 07:59
     Is that a Santa Fe Super Chief Locomotive?

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:10
     I really like Kato locos but it gets monotonous seeing the same road names.  I would really love some SD70s and 90s in demonstration colors.  Have you considered doing those?

-  04-17-2021 08:24
     We've contemplated it, but traditionally demonstrator colors don't sell particularly well, sadly

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:24
     really?    I thought they would fly of the shelves

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:24
     I guess you frown on fantasy schemes also?

-  04-17-2021 08:25
     Our GE Demonstrator ES44's were by far the slowest selling versions. The most popular were the UP and BNSF versions.

-  04-17-2021 08:25
     We don't "frown" on them, per say, but they're hard to convince people to buy

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:25
     you wouldn't have that problem  with me (

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:26
     thank you

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:28
     how about any NYC F7's

-  04-17-2021 08:30
     No plans at this time, since we just did the E7's

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:34
     how about CP rail SD70ACU' in the maroon/grey?

andyzimmerman -  04-17-2021 08:37
     @NikSigwald and Benoit, it was a good run. Great job , outstanding work!

-  04-17-2021 08:37
     No plans to do an SD70ACU right now, no

Danster -  04-17-2021 08:40
     thanks and have a good day

Erik -  04-17-2021 08:41
     Could you please give me any tips on making a reversing loop with Kato HO Unitrack? Especifically a double-track dogbone reversing loop that connects to a Kato HO HV4 (3-114). Thank you so much!

-  04-17-2021 08:41
     That's not really advice we can give through chat here. Your best bet is to find a hobby shop that can run you through setting up a reversing loop

Randy -  04-17-2021 08:51
     I really enjoyed Michael's graphics presentation, (especially the subject he was working on) but I missed when we might see the two-tone grey FEF-3 available?  Or was it not mentioned?

markf6 -  04-17-2021 09:01
     are you planning on doing any MBTA locomotives?

wawa111 -  04-17-2021 09:26
     Are you guys going to make the metra mp36 and the gallery cars in ho scale

-  04-17-2021 09:33
     Randy - It wasn't mentioned. This project is still a ways off

-  04-17-2021 09:33
     markf6 - no plans at this time.

-  04-17-2021 09:33
     wawa111 - no plans for that one right now either. Maybe someday.

Kiwi -  04-17-2021 09:53
     When will N scale flex track be available in the US?

-  04-17-2021 09:53
     Should be September

jpgoodman -  04-17-2021 09:57
     Does Kato have HO bridge track like N scale?

Kiwi -  04-17-2021 09:57
     Great. In hobby shops or just online thru Kato USA?

-  04-17-2021 09:58
     jpgoodman - we do not

-  04-17-2021 09:58
     Kiwi - hobby shops at large

Kiwi -  04-17-2021 10:10
     Thank you, Kato. The flex track is much welcomed enhancement!

-  04-17-2021 10:19
     Glad to hear it!
