    It looks really cool but I wish it was for a good route like Sherman Hill. Granger Heartland is a lazy joke to many at this point. I was a fool to think it would be good and I would buy it.

    Same here. I don't think I've ever seen a one of those around KC before (then again, I'm not really up in that part of town very much). Sherman Hill definitely seems like a better route for them. Oh well, at least they're in the game officially now.

    Wow, great loco! But I noticed a mistake, it was actually the 265H engine that powered the first generation SD90MACH-2, there was no such 256H. Also, would DTG consider making a complete SD90MACH-2 loco with full 6,000 HP traction? Because I would love to hear what the 265H sounded in it’s heyday!

    That would be cool! If I am not mistaken, the 256H was a four stroke engine, so I am curious as to whether or not it sounds like the SD70ACeT4 four stroke.

    Yeah, the 265H was a four-stroke. Most people described them as sounding like a cross between a GE and an Alco.

    Maybe in the future we could get a CP Rail SD9043MAC as a DLC.

    i think there will be repaint UP SD9043 mac in Canadian pacific. but as for actual Canadian pacific style sd9043mac with ditch lights on top of walkway ya it ain't going to happen.... i don't think DTG will do Undecorated locomotives.

    hey DTG if you want good sale on this locomotive might i suggest adding Canadian style Undecorated sd9043mac locomotives with ditchlight on top walkway front there. DTG i know your licenses limited like you can't get deal with cp or cefx or indiana railroad. i donno about rio grande sd9043 mac i think it part of cefx brand cause there CIT name on nose there. if you make and add it to your locomotive pack then people repaint that locomotive and more people will by up sd9043mac for the repaint. i think it good marking plan
