The Krauss Maffei project models have arrived and most have been shipped to dealers. I am biased but they are spectacular. There are a couple models remaining. If you didn’t get the one you wanted. Have your dealer check. They will all be gone by the end of next week. – Special thanks to Bob Zenk and Se Ho for a great data / research package and amazing execution.
Bob Zenk our technical expert partner on this project has been posting photos and descriptions on numerous online forums (Trainorders.com – Facebook SP Prototype modelers page and the 9010 Facebook page. Please check them out of you haven’t seen them yet. Final reservations are due by this Saturday. These models will elevate the art of brass diesel models to a level never before seen. – thanks for your support
Below is a small sample of the correction note package we sent back to Boo Rim
Unfortunately due to virtually no reservations we are forced to cancel the DODX caboose project. Thanks for your interest.
The story goes the Bakersfield roundhouse foreman decided number 9 needed a new look. He asked the shop forces to change her into a more historic looking locomotive. Those working the Slim Princess, especially engineer Walt Ferguson, were not happy with the result. We are offering number 9 in this configuration for those that find it cool, or that happen to model the date range she was in this configuration.
