Dear Mike,
Those are all photos of regular production locos- a variety of cabs and stacks.
Have fun!

sorry...maybe I wasn't clear...

I'm trying to ask which version is which? are there 2 different steel cabs? and do I have to get the Greenbrier version to get the "2 window" rather than the "3 window" steel cab?

What strikes (irritates?) me is the fact that good quality photographs from hobbyshops, distributors and the likes can be found on the web, but the manufacturer itself is not able to put a photo on its website.

maybe Bachmann should follow car manufacturers, movie makers etc who generally "build up" a hype via sneak previews, detail photographs etc.

    It looks that the Greenbrier cab has an external blanking plate over,rather than 'glass' in, the front window aperture. Should be an easy alteration to any of the other steel cab versions.

We have posted images of the production versions of the 4-6-0 in the product database. These production samples were just received recently. We hesitate to post images of pre-production pieces since things can change during the manufacturing process. As the ship date gets closer we will post some detail images in the photo gallery.

Hey Lemunian, I did some size comparisons on the 4-6-0, using dimensioned line drawings printed to 1:48 scale.  The overall length of the 4-6-0 and 2-8-0 look to be very close, although the 4-6-0 has a longer boiler, and sits higher.  And keep in mind, this is just an estimate.  The actual model could be a bit different.

Here is the comp with the Mogul.  And thanks much for the link to the Japanese Hobby Shop with the 4-6-0 shots.  That got the anticipation rolling.
