It's funny, those Kato shells make me mad. Why? Because they remind me the breadth of road names that Kato KNEW existed at one time.

Like B&O.

get your facts right boy...
...GP30/35 were never sold under the Kato brand, they were produced for Atlas, so the Atlas 'art-guy' probably did the research and the drawings, Kato did only produce what they have been told.

and btw, it's bloody B O R I N G your rant against Kato in nearly every of your posts...
...we know it by now that you're not a 'Kato Lover' !

How about STEAM loco shell substitutes? They don't even need a paint scheme, just engineered & manufactured in painfully excruciating detail; that'll be enough to draw nitpicking criticism from purists!

Seriously, well-designed freelance locos are ok, even when they don't exactly match a prototype. The Bachmann 2-8-0 and the MP 4-4-0 both have unclear pedigrees, but the craftsmanship is appreciated.

One obvious target is the Mini-Trix decapod (as Mark/spookshow discusses in his loco website) which is begging for even a mediocre shell replacement. The wheels are the size of the Russian type, the wheelbase closer to Pennsy's, but either configuration would be welcome.

It would be great to have shells for early 20th century (pre USRA) locos like Baldwins, or logging locos, that could be put on existing (old or new) mechanisms.

Steve4,stashed away in the bottom of my loco drawer is a pair of GP35s in KATO boxes bought brand new from Riders hobbyshop in Grand Rapids,MI.The only English word on either box is KATO.

By the way I am no KATO lover either but I still buy them if they run (last 6 I bought only two ran out of the jewel case),but thgen everybody has a misfire every so often.

I have many of the early Kato made GP30 and GP35, all are in Kato boxes as well with Atlas paper insert and an Atlas print on the lid...
...a lid with a Kato inprint will easy fit the same box !

My Christmas wish is that Atlas will add some of their Grand Trunk western GP38-2 shells. Road numbers aren't important as I'll be renumbering them. I would buy 6 of them.

Please Atlas? Please please please? 'How 'bout if I say please? :)

Fingers are crossed!


Long live the Grand Trunk Western!!!

Where is the page with the decorated shells now? Used to be easy to spot and now I'm having trouble.

Hey Atlas, got any more shells to add? I did all the damage I could to the current stash. If you have any M-K-T John Deere GP40's I'd love a couple of them. (you know, since you insist the Katy stuff doesn't sell you MUST have a pile of them)

Oh, and for those of you who tire of clicking through all the pages to get to the end, here is the last page in case they add some:
https://secure.atlasrr.com/mod1/items.asp?Cc=NDECBODY&ItemMoveby=0&Nbm=NSD60C&Pbm=NSD60MUP&iTpStatus=0&Tp=&sTitle=&FromNav=False
At least in my IE browser there is no way to go to the last page without clicking through the other 8 or 9 pages.

Will the GP-35 “Kato” shells fit old Atlas releases of the GP-35? I’ve seen the older units available at shows and on the net at really low prices, but not in any road names in model. I’m guessing these new shells just “snap” on to the chassis and are secured with those “bumps” that are molded on the interior sides of the shell.

One more question: Are the GP-30 and GP-35 shells and chassis interchangeable?
