I also hear the lettering on the Bachmanns are still a little large. I hear Kato AmTubes have a large "empty" space by the coupler due to the truck mounts whereas Bachmann doesn't. I also hear Bachmann's mold is closer to an AmTube than Kato is this true?They're not the same car. Kato's model is of an Amfleet II car and Bachmann's is an Amfleet I car. The San Diegans ran with Amfleet I cars.
