 Hello,
 I am new to this board, and I look forward to learning more about HO scale models. Can someone tell me when the updated Bachmann American Freedom Train GS-4 locomotive will be out? I have the SP version, and I am looking for the Freedom Train version. Thanks........Paul

Dear 4449,
The  AFT version is in transit now, and will be released asap.
Have fun!

 Thanks Bach-mann. Are there pictures of the new AFT version of the Bachmann GS-4 anywhere I can see?

Oh no - I thought we left the AFT back in the seventies with Jimmy Carter and CB radios.

I saw the real train in person - I thought the paint job was uninspired.

Keep the GS-4 in SP colors - you can't improve on the paint job.

     The 4449 was in the Freedom Train colors again from 2002 to 2004 because of the September 11th attacks. I wish bachmann produced an auxiliary tender in the Daylight colors.

 I am a huge fan of the SP GS-4 locomotive. I agree it is hard to beat the SP Daylight paint scheme, but I'll take a GS-4 in just about any paint scheme.  Smiley

picked mine up today

Review: SWEET. Runs very smooth at a low speed(5 SMPH i think was the lowest maintained speed i could get), although the paint seems a little glossy.

Dear BaltOhioRRfan - As I remember the real AFT had shiny red, white and blue paint. They wanted it to stand out because of the bicentennial celebration. It sure did!

I don't know if the 2002-2004 paint scheme was done with glossy paint. Didn't see it on its second go round.

Does that mean the 2-8-4s are in the station, too?
