Of course this is the Aristo mold... Kader has them all, not only learned as Aristo went away, but as evidenced by the eggliner and motor blocks being sold by Bachmann, owned by Kader... also interesting that they will be making an O scale eggliner under the Williams brand...



Thanks for the time hack Pete.... he does say that it is the Aristo tooling, and interestingly enough, mentions twice the price of these on ebay... so the high prices on ebay have brought around the resurrection of the Aristo product....


I wonder what else is expensive on ebay in the Aristo line, perhaps the SD45, arguably the best and most popular loco Aristo ever built.


Will be very interested to see if the Dash 9 will come with the "D type" sintered wheels and axles, or the "you cannot set gauge" tapered wheels and axles... time will tell...
