Bachmann's 1968 catalog includes the introduction of the company's N-scale model train line.
The catalog illustrations all feature HO-scale models subbing for the N-scale items. The GP40 pictured appears to be an
Athearn GP35 with the middle radiator fan raised to give the look of a GP40. The mock-up model is custom painted in Santa
Fe red-and-silver passenger colors and carries roadnumber 4561. The F9-A found in the 1968 catalog is a TYCO Union Pacific
model and the F9-B is TYCO's Canadian National model. Diesel Locomotives at the '68 launch included the GP40, F9-A and F9-B.
Diesel Locomotives are organized by type with each having its own page. Roadnames offered are
