Athearn CFNR GP15-1

It looks like 2013 is going to be a tough year on my bank account, and a great year for my model railroad.
I am expecting delivery of my Athearn Genesis GP38-2 in the next 6 weeks or so, which will expand my SP roster nicely. However I also pre-ordered an Athearn Genesis GP15-1 in CFNR paint, but as always with pre-orders, it is not always certain that the model is actually going to be produced. Well in this case I need not worry, Athearn recently showed of a painted pre-production sample of this loco at the San Mateo show and it is looking great. Additionally the Athearn website is updated to show a picture of the model on their pages.

Seeing this engine, I'm almost tempted to order a second one, but I really can't stretch to that budget wise...
