Just make the SP Tunnel Motors with the Full light package (True SP). See ScaleTrains business model....their HO scale tunnel motor with full light packages sold out. Their "lobotomized" version with plated over lights didn't sell out.
You must have have a hard time understanding simple concepts. Perhaps I need to draw you a picture.
If their are 18 reservations for a road, then obviously 2 more will meet the minimum. So, if W&LE needs 2 more reservations to get done, I will add 2 more.
Do you need a calculator to understand simple math?
Because you're never going to know how many reservations there are for each. That's why. Even when I reserved the number required to make the F7 demonstrators I never knew the total number done, only the number I needed to purchase at the end. He and the builder will make the decision on which variants are a go and you're only going to know if it's a no go when reservations close and all the numbers are set for the builder. You're done. He never publishes the numbers for each variation.
It's nice to see that this project has moved beyond "go" to now include the tunnel motor variant. I've always thought those, well... cool, but I'll resist the temptation for now. Have to take care of the home road first. But if indeed there's a second run on this project, be it straight SD40-2, or tunnel motors, I'll be in for that too.
So I put in my reservation, do we get a conformation email or something? I didn't receive anything after I submitted it. I just want to make sure I have my name in on this. Thanks
