    I'm genuinely curious. Did any research go into this at all?

    What would make you think that there hasn't been research done? Looks pretty much like I'd expect an SD60E look like.

    Long awaited and coming soon! I can't wait!

    But I wonder if 9-1-1, #6963, and #6920 will be included? Or perhaps released as Marketplace items?

    It looks absolutely nothing like an SD60E.

    The only things that I can spot that are differing from the real thing is that the (photographer's) left handrail has a bit more of a hook in it in real life, there's an antenna presumably for PTC above the engineer's side, and the ditch lights are too far apart when compared to NS No. 6906 - but when looking at 6956, you can see that the handrail is in the correct place and the PTC antenna is gone.

    Again, more or less details. Guessing this SD60E model is more of the current design (2nd Image) than the earlier ones (1st Image)

    Are you kidding?! It looks VERY MUCH like the SD60E to me!

    How so does it not look like an SD60E to you?

    Not right now. Hopefully, it'll be released by this week. It's been a month.

    I remember when the GP40-2 took at least a month after announcement before release.

    I remember that too I was thinking that it had been abandoned, but fingers crossed sometime this coming week.

    I'm especially excited about the upcoming DR-6-4-2000 from DTM!
