This model has been around since 2002 and has been released in dozens of different paint schemes. The new release will feature seven different paint schemes, six of them are new. The release will also feature two different undecorated models - with and without step guards.
The target release date is 4th Quarter 2017 - which likely means mid - 2018, but hey, you never know. Each model will have both a DCC and DC version. The MSRP for the DCC versions will be $154.95 and the DC models will be priced at $119.95.
The road names will include the Pennsy (new road numbers), EJ&E, L&N, Rock Island, Southern Pacific, Western Maryland and Western of Alabama. The decoder-equipped versions come with NCE boards.
