There have been a couple of production delays with the Blue Bird and this has rippled into the E unit schedule. Blue Bird is looking like March with the E units directly following. Thanks for your patience.
The Golden State was a joint train operated by the Rock Island and Southern Pacific connecting Chicago and Los Angeles and points in between. The original version was done by The Coach Yard in an un-finished (brass form) and also by Challenger Imports with factory painting and interiors. Our version will be of the cars in their later form (’55-’56 and 60’s) The cars will mostly be de-skirted. They will be fully factory finished with interior and LED lighting. This project has been a long time in the making. We are doing two complete 8 car sets of the Golden State one with a Rock Island theme and the other with a Southern Pacific theme. We are also including in this project a number of interesting Pullman 10-6 sleepers for many different railroads. Please get your orders in as soon as possible we will only build the models that are preordered. We expect this project in Q3 of 2015. As all UTI projects these cars will be designed to operate as well as be impeccably finished. Thanks for your support.
Due to the outstanding recent production of SP 5067 in Golden State simulated stainless steel I livery by The Coach Yard, we are removing UTI 1029 from the Golden State project. If you have not yet purchased one of The Coach Yard’s excellent SP 5067’s, we have seen them available in dealer showcases.
We are sorry for delay but due to currency fluctuations we have been unable to set pricing on the E units until today. Pricing is listed under E units!!! tab below picture above.
These are scheduled for January 2015 delivery
Thanks for your patience
