Interesting enough, Intermountain announced the same unit earlier this week.

I expect substantial demand for undecorateds from shortline (prototype or freelance) modelers. A lot of GP7u locos ended up in such service once ATSF was done with them.

I guess the manufacturers don't share much development information with each other, which results in duplicate models like this. I'm not sure how far along Intermountain is in their version, but it certainly would not be surprise if they pulled the plug on the project given that Athearn already is pretty far along. Here is a link to the announcement from Intermountain:

Is this just the cab, or the entire unit?? If it's
the unit, I want one painted ATSF.

When do you think we can expect to see these delivered? My GP 35's and GP 20's are due for the rebuild!

From Athearn's announcement:

> Item numbers, road numbers, retail, and ETA: TBD

No answer to your question at present.

Sounds like the entire unit. The 'Topeka Cab' name is due to them being rebuilt in Topeka, KS.

The cabs were built in Topeka while the units themselves were rebuilt in Cleburne and San Berdo.

Awesome. I'm going to need a few of these for my 1985 Panhandle Sub layout. Well done Athearn and/or Intermountain.
