    If you are looking to get a GS-4, the Kato GS-4 is a better loco in my opinion. The pilot (leading) truck on a Con-Cor GS-4 is not correct for this type of engine. The drive for the Con-Cor loco is based off a Great Northern S-2. Kato produces the 4449 in Daylight colors, and is planning to realease the loco in Amercan Freedom Train colors as well. My GS-4 will take and 11 inch radius curve with no complaints. The second run GS-4's from kato are DCC ready, you just have to install the decoder in the tender of the loco. Hope that helps!
