U25C

Arnold released the above photo of the first decorated samples of the U25C’s.  Be sure to click on the image to bring it up full size, as you can catch more details of the brand new knuckle coupler being included on these models.  The coupler, besides having more face detail and a smaller overall profile than a standard MTL coupler, also has a couple nubs sticking out from the top and bottom of the coupling face.  This extends the gather height, to hand rough track work or bad vertical transitions, or can be clipped off for those seeking a closer to scale coupler.  Locomotives look pretty sharp and we’re hoping the couplers operate as well as they look!
