You're welcome and yes It is a great looking loco.  I had passed on it years ago and eventually regretted not getting one.  

 

There was never an unlettered version produced.  Take a look at the links provided, I have now have updated pages for each MTH locomotive type (steam or diesel) that lists every single engine produced with product number, detail info like cab numbers, sound files, owners manuals and links to the official MTH page for that particular product.  There is also an indication if a particular engine's production was canceled.  These pages are all accessible from my main home page:  www.rayman4449.com

Looks great, I'll take one too! There are also so many trains I regret not buying from the ~2003 to 2007 era; unfortunately those were also the years I was a starving college student. I can only hope MTH will re-release these (and other steam locomotives) someday soon. I know they will be more expensive, but can't be worse than what we're seeing on eBay, and they will have PS3 too which would be a huge advantage for me using DCC.

Not currently no.  The GS-2 was first announced in the 2004 catalog and was included in all catalogs through and including 2007.

Hey Benshell: Don't despair I was a student once and felt the same way, it even lasted a bit longer because I wanted to make it in showbusiness and it is a hard climb all the way. But Model railroading is a life time activity when you get my age, you don't have enough room to store all your engines and cars any more! So don't despair you will probably end up finding what you want sooner or later. And remember Model railroading is a cumulative process little by little equipment just seems to accumulate. Often one ends up saturating ones layout with too much equipment and it fills up every track in all your yards so that you can't operate a descent train any more. And life often has a lot of good surprises too, opportunities will come now and then...
