Kato has released the first official photo of their GS-4 “American Freedom Train” paint scheme. According to Kato, from 1975 to 1976, in celebration of the United States’ 200th birthday, GS-4 #4449 was re-painted into a striking red, white, and blue paint scheme, and put into excursion duty pulling a special display train all around the United States.

More information on the entire Kato GS-4 locomotive model range can be found on their website HERE.
