The Demonstrator was never a true Demonstrator anyway.  It started life as Seaboard unit that got rebuilt into an E6 partway through the 1939 world's fair.  I may need to add an E5 B unit.  Hard to decide as there are so many other great offerings right now from Sunset.

This is great news !!!

I will pre-order through Chicagoland Hobby for CB&Q E5A & E5B units.

Unless I missed it, 3RD Rail’s website did not list the specific road numbers & SILVER names for the CB&Q E5 models.



From the first run, I already have:


CB&Q   E5A   Cab          #9915A   Silver CARRIER   Nose Stripes:  BLACK

CB&Q   E5B   Booster   #9910B   Silver POWER    (B units have neither a nose nor stripes )



From the second run, I am hoping to buy:

CB&Q   E5A   Cab          #9911A   Silver PILOT        Nose Stripes:  BLACK   (Prototype preserved at Illinois Railway Museum)

CB&Q   E5A   Cab         #9910A   Silver SPEED        Nose Stripes:  RED

CB&Q   E5B   Booster   #9911B   Silver MATE       (B units have neither a nose nor stripes )



3RD Rail's website indicates that for CB&Q E5B booster units that their is a choice between BLACK stripes & RED stripes.  Because the E5B booster units did not have a cab with a nose, the E5B units had neither black nor red stripes.  I hope that 3RD Rail clarifies if there is any difference between these two choices for CB&Q E5B booster units.  

I also hope that 3RD Rail will specify on their website what road numbers & Silver names will be offered.  

Thanks again for starting this post !!!

I for one would be in for an 1939 A-B Seaboard Worlds Fair "E4" unit!

I will let Santiago answer CB&Q Bill's question above regarding detail differences Black and Red striping. Seems reasonable about the engine# and name plates. We will clarify that more.

Added Demo and KCS E6As.

Especially since the 9911 Silver Pilot is the ONLY surviving E5 and the only locomotive to leave scrapper Pielet Brothers as a locomotive and not as a pile of scrap metal.

I'm hoping for Missouri Pacific in Jenks blue.

Me too !!!!!!  

I’ve already got my MP AB from run 1.  
A MP E6 in Jenks paint would be a fantastic add-on for my MP “empire”. No one has done it in “O” before too !!!!  Email Scott to give us the option !!!!!

(Sorry not to post a picture but I can only find photos that the website will scrub for copyright issues - can’t find a line drawing. No pix of models as no models. 😖)

Cheers

I called it “demonstrator” just to keep it simple. Didn’t want to “get into the weeds”.
Anyway, Scott’s now added it to the options. 👍
