Lionel's New PRR Operating Merchandise Car

Does anyone have any information about expected delivery of this car? Catalog #6-27941 (old #3854). It had a write-up in the last issue of LCCA's The Lion Roars magazine (with a painted production car), and there's a YouTube video showing an unpainted sample car, but it doesn't appear on Lionel's shipping website.

I had mine pre-ordered from Charles Ro and I received it before the end of last year. I know that there was a tread on the Hobby Station last week. I ordered an item from them last and it took me over a month to get my refund from them.

Since they are mounted with screws, just add a washer ( i forget what size) between the screw & truck.  I did this on a bunch of my cc rolling stock that were wobbly on their trucks (mainly the auto loaders & cabooses)  and they run great now

Grzyboski's doesn't have it, nor does C Ro. Called Hobby Station and after second call the phone was answered. They have record of my order and made their initial charge to my cc but said they never received their order from their distributor. Looks like I'm SOL.

Grzyboski's still lists it as In Stock on their web site:

Hobby Station is going to process a refund for me. The lady at HS called distibutors and they told her their orders were not going to be fulfilled. It would have been nice if HS's communication with its customers had been better. I'm certainly disappointed.  Thanks to those who replied to my question.

hey mtnhi7

 

I'm going to the NJ Greenbrrg show Sat. and will look around.

Hopefully someone will have given you a lead by then.

The previous 27941 Merchandise car thread was very informative. What this forum is all about. I like how one can unload barrels and boxes on same raised platform.

Nice for the small layout. Who knew  eh eh
