I don’t think I can even make reservations anywhere for the undec kits. As a 1920s modeler, I need to paint and letter the cars myself. Right now I’m just buying kits online and repainting them myself.

Curiously, the four undec kits, still with their “RC” item numbers, are not
among those indicating “Reservations Needed.” Also, the notation is “TBD”
rather than “Taking Reservations,” so can reservations even be made for the
undec kits, and will reservations for the undec kits help moved the painted and
lettered cars forward?
I’m not sure what that means for the undec kits, but I certainly hope they
will be forthcoming as I’m most interested in doing earlier versions of these
cars. The only one of the painted and lettered cars that is of any
interest to me at the moment is No. 37201 “Pennsylvania – Circle Keystone –
PRRT&HS No. 3966

Just talked to my Intermountain salesman about the X29.
The X29 models were originally made by Red Caboose. RC also
made reefers, tanks, flats and gons, besides boxcars in HO scale.
For the past several years the Red Caboose products were sold by Intermountain
and the product numbers had an RR prefix. IM has now acquired the RC
line and is streamlining the product numbering eliminating the RR
So the cars below are former RC cars and molds, but now in the IM
family. Some of the road names/paint schemes might be new
releases. Order from your favorite IM dealer.
See many of you Friday at the RPM East show.
