I'd like to know when the RJ Corman SD40-2 is scheduled to be shipped. I put in a pre-order back in August and the website says October 2018. Missed that target by a light year or two. Since then I have asked MTH in an email, no response, what's new there. I have asked other hobby shops I've bought engines from, no help there because they are as uninformed as the rest of us. Don't get me wrong I'm certainly not throwing rocks at anyone, but MTH is as BAD about not replying to correspondence as Lionel. It's as if they want our money but they don't want talk to us in the mean time. All that super secret probation crap about not giving out information about future products. If you haven't seen Animal House the super secret jazz will not make any sense. So not only would I like to know when or if the RJ Corman engine will ever be shipped to stores, I'd also like to know why the manufacturers feel the need to keep it a national security issue.
