So what will they be sold as?  My impression was that they were Proto 2000

I have been thinking the same thing as well.  However, Kato did a GP35
within the past handful of years. (That doesn't mean much, since I think
there is still huge demand) 

A GP38 or 40 would be great, but Garrett hinted that PRR/PC fans would be
pleased.  In my book that means six axle.  One recent conversion I
performed was to modify a pair of Proto 2000 SD9 drives to allow Atlas SD35
shells to fit. (Correct wheelbase & trucks, fuel tank needs to be rebuilt)

My guess is that the rumor may be an SD35...
