Re: Latest run of Intermountain (Wegmann) HO PFE Rebuilt Reefers


Nelson Moyer
 

Very astute! I ordered six now in my hold box at the dealer awaiting imminent arrival of some GP-7s. Intermountain ignores complaints about errors and foobies, so nothing changes. My last three orders of PFE reefers all had different colors of mineral red roofs and ends. At least I know what I’m faced with ahead of time on this order – a paint strip and complete rebuild. That’s my last Intermountain preorder, more pigs in pokes for me.

I am now glad I exhibited amazing sloth about ordering these in advance . . .

Guys,
I own six R18,19 & 21 cars of their previous 'Wegmann' runs.
ALL of them had severe underframe and brake system problems, wrong heralds and or dates, etc.
So during all those years nothing -except the price- has changed so it seems...;-((
Dismantled the underframes and brake systems, mounted new improved parts.
Took the decals and paint off (they were kind of mud-ish orange) and repainted/redecaled.
Still have to refurbish 4 of them..., just like the prototypes.
cheers,
Fred Jansz
