When are orders going in for the diner car? and who is taking them?
No local hobby shop out here.
Rider's Hobby Shop of Flint and/or Grand Rapids, Meeeeshigan, are both pleased to take advance orders for ALL manufacturer's products...including Atlas O. In Flint, ask for Mike, Ken, Cheryl, Terry, Gary, Jack, Phil, Neil, ...et al..., of the Trains Dept.. In Grand Rapids, ask for Bill and his crew in the Trains Dept..
The CZ Dining Car...all 3 CZ versions, 2 Amtrak versions, and the undec...are IMMEDIATELY orderable...projected due date in October 2013. (Looking at the choices on a separate screen at one of our several distributors as I write this.)
BTW...it's not uncommon for announcements/rumors/leaks of new forthcoming products to be made before the mfr has posted sku's, or distributors entered the items into their online ordering system. Not a problem for us! We take your order/info the old-fashioned way...on a genuine printed 5X7 order card with a buy-em-by-the-box genuine ballpoint pen...and enter the order later onto the whiz-bang computer when all the pertinent poop is available. Baggage, Dome/Obs...we know they're coming...we'd be pleased to have you pre-order through us.
