After many delays the production E8’s and E9’s are arriving. First batch to arrive are the SP Daylight painted versions. Next up will be the SP Black Widow and Red and Grey. Followed by the rest of the versions. Pictured below is the California State Railroad Museum version UTI 5384-1. Eight of this version were produced. Pick up notices have been sent to dealers.

Chuck was interviewed on BrassTrains.com Monday Morning Express today. There are some project updates and some photos of the SP E units. They should be here Feb 15.
They should be here by the end of Feb. Thanks again for your patience. Here is a photo in paint of some of the SP E unit shells.
Good progress is being made on the PAs. Here are some photos from Korea of the PA project production activity. Some PB shells, fuel tanks and truck side frames.
Happy New Year everyone. The good news is the NYC E7s have been delivered to The Caboose in Wolcott, Connecticut. This was a project done especially for The Caboose. They may have one or two remaining. The SP E8s and E9s are next. We have seen the production samples and they are beautiful. Boo Rim is finishing them up. Hopefully they will be ready at the end of January. The rest of the project will follow those in about 30 days if all goes according to what we are being told. We are sorry for the delays on this project but we are limited to what information we get from Boo Rim. Thanks for your patience.
