Kato has announced their second paint scheme of the MP36PH passenger locomotive and Bi-level passenger car sets. Virginia Railway Express is the next production run and is due in hobby stores and online retailers in February of 2012. This run will mirror the Metra sets (due the end of this month) with a 4-car set that includes 1 MP36PH locomotive, 2 bi-level coaches and 1 be-level cab/coach. An additional locomotive and bi-level coach will be available separately. The locomotive and bi-level cab/coach will feature directional lighting consistent with the push/pull usage of the prototype train. You can find more information on this model at Kato USA’s website HERE.
