Hi all  :)
 It appears that Walther's has decided to put the G-scale 4-4-0 in the On30.

160-81392 Spectrum(R) Steam American 4-4-0 -- Unletttered (Olive Green & Russia Iron)  On30  850.00 N

I do believe that the 4-4-0 shown is in F scale (1:20.3), not
G scale (1:22.5)

Charging $850 for an On30 loco... That would be cold-hearted.  Especially considering how many people have been waiting for one.

I can't believe that anyone would pay Walthers' prices for anything.
Just about the most expensive around.  Looking at the catalog gives
one some idea of what's available but a quick internet search will
turn up other dealers selling for half the price.

that is correct..it is in fact F-scale, not G-scale.
