Hello Hans and Rob! It is has been awhile since you all provided us z-scale junkies with a product development update. I know you all talked about doing one every once in awhile. I think some of us are having D-Ts because we haven't seen your smiling faces giving us the "inside" poop. You all are doing a great job with product releases. Sta safe! Stay healthy! Happy Thursday!!
Gleaned from other posts...they talked about doing another video, but I think the SD40-2 plastic got delayed and they wanted to wait to make that part of the video, and then RobK had a family matter that likely contributed to the delay as well. SD40-2 plastic is now in their hands so hopefully it won't be too much longer.
Why is there only so few "vintage" ( ~ 1965 ) rolling stock from the East Coast (NH, NYC) ? For example I had to buy my NH cabooses at ... Sascha Braun and Gerard Huet. And about "motorized" rolling stock, I am happy to have the PA-1 in NH (and to wait for the delivery of the NYC version). About other "engines", there are only the Budd's, GP7/9, F3 and a NYC GP30 which I bought "NOS" on the Bay (and had to pay about 55 Euro of supplementary customs and transportation fees). It should not be difficult to modify a SW (as I wrote in another thread) to make a NYC version (which I would use as a "road switcher" on my local line). Or are the modellers only interested in buying modern rolling stock, pulling "gigantic" trains with 40 to 50 double stack container cars pulled by 4 engines, or auto-trains with more than 15 cars ?
