Good morning Schuyler & List,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
On Thursday afternoon, I received an updated Spring 2004 kit update list from Tricia Lofton that I had requested when I spoke with her and Martin the previous Monday. This is the latest list that was issued just prior to the California shows that Martin had attended this past Spring. The Buckeye End Erie car (kit #18.1) and the Deco End C&O car (Kit #18.2) are still on the list, although in the past, they were marked for close-out.
The only cars that she crossed off the list are the "Howe Truss Outside Braced Box Cars (Kit #'s 17.2 through 17.15) and the S.P. de Mexico express B-50-14 (Kit #17.9).
The PFE kits that were listed on previous lists as close-outs are still on the list in that category. This list now advises of the Notice of Delay in Filling Orders. I have had an order for 15 kits in since mid-March and she advises that it should be filled in early September. They still have a 6-Month order lag due to overwhelming demand.
I laugh when I have someone tell me that no one builds kits anymore, especially the "HARD" ones!
