Coming this Auguest, Kato will be re-releasing the 2010 California Zephyr 11-Car Set (available originally only in limited quantities and sold out in a month) along with a brand new release of the CB&Q E5A locomotive with two new lettering variations: “Red Band” nose printing to represent the E5 in both its 60’s appearance as well as its appearance when #9911A was acquired by the Illinois Railway Museum. Whether you’re looking to model the California Zephyr as it operated being pulled by these locomotives or are wanting to put together a more modern excursion consist, these locomotives will look stunning in their stainless appearance with the evocative red striping on the nose.
