At long last we received the E7-E9 project production samples. There are a few paint corrections required. Dealers should expect pick up notices shortly. Thanks for your patience. Most are fully reserved but there are a couple BN and KCS versions available. The NYC version shown is an exclusive for The Caboose in Wolcott, Ct.
The PLA is one of the groups responsible for restoration, maintenance and operation of a number of historic railroad locomotives and rolling stock that operate at Niles Canyon railroad museum. They are in the home stretch of restoration and return to operation work on the last remaining Southern Pacific Krauss Maffei diesel hydraulic. We are big fans of all things KM and would love for our KM project to move forward unfortunately we don’t yet have enough reservations to move it in to production. If you are at all interested in seeing these models built please reserve one through you local dealer.
Here is a note posted on the PLA web site hoping to drum up a few more reservations.
Sorry for the delay in updating the E unit status. Our builder Boo Rim is working through the models going over final quality control. They (and we) want to ensure the models are as close to perfect as possible. Dealers should expect pick up notices shortly. Thanks again for your patience.
The second batch of E units have arrived. They consist of the KCS and Seaboard E3s-E6s. We hope to see the E7’s – E9’s near the end of this month (March).
thanks for your patience
We have received the CRI&P, ATSF and Mopac E3s-E6s. Your dealer will get invoiced today and they will ship as soon as payment is received. The others will be following soon.
The E units have experienced a minor delay in Korea and the E3s – E6s are expected at the end of December with the E7s-E9s due late January. Sorry for delay and thanks very much for your patience.
This project is long sold out but we have a few models available due to a canceled reservation. Please see your dealer if there are any you missed reserving. There is 1 each of most of the KCS units a few BN a few SP.
We hope you have a Happy Holiday season and a Merry Christmas.
