Well, maybe it's not officially dead yet.
Jim emailed me asking if I had emails for those that said they would like to have this car. He's also been seeking numbers on the O Scale Kings, P48, and one other site.
From my count only 5 have posted here saying they were interested, the others posts were only comments. Of the 5, I see 4 emails.
I'll pass this along to him and keep an eye on this topic to see if anybody else is interested to give him an update.
