I'm guessing Scott doesn't have enough reservations as of yet to give the green light to this project.  Hoping he does as I want this engine.  BAD.  Figured I'd post pics of the engine I want which I found with the help of the NYC historical society.

So if you want one, reserve it here.

Gary, any word on how short he is?....I put in my reservation...I’d like to see this project come to life as well......thanks .......Pat

No,  I sent Scott the unmarked photos above to him today.  I'm hoping to get a email or he chimes in here.

Plus, I nice brass caboose to go with this engine would be icing on the cake

Brass cabeese are out there. Kohs has been talking about doing one for about ten years now. In the meantime look for a Mullet River one. With a little more work the Williams brass caboose could be pretty nice too.

These are going to be really nice.  I put my order in way back in '09 when these were first thought of and never thought we would get to this point.  Bought an old US Hobbies version in the interim but the P&LE version this go round should be just the ticket!  I see the Alco FA-1 is no longer even listed on 3rd Rail's site for reservations?  Is that one a no go?

I don’t see any photos (found photos of the engines) for FA units but this is still on the reservation’s page.

If Scott would have put the PRR FA-1, i bet a LOT more reservations would come in.

I emailed Scott yesterday to ask about the status of the NYC H10a and if it was too late for me to jump on board. Good news is there still is time for me to reserve one but before I do I want to try to raise 40% of the money. I figure in today's world of O gauge if you don't pre-order when it is something special you most likely will have a tough time getting the item.

In looking at Gary's photos in the original post, does anyone know what that pipe is near the smokestack on the fireman's side? I have never seen a locomotive with that pipe on the boiler. I found 2 pictures of a H10a in the Al Staufer book NYC Later Power (page 96) and neither locomotive had the pipe. Just my opinion but I think it is a nicer looking engine without the pipe. However this will not deter me from ordering one if I can come up with some of the money now.

Phil, you must be talking about the dry pipe, ....when the H10’s were originally built, the throttles were in the smoke box, necessitating the need for the dry pipe to be external,....by the 1920’s these locomotives were already being heavily modified, with throttles moved exterior, thus the dry pipes were moved to the inside of the smoke box. These locomotives went through some crazy changes throughout their careers,....longer cabs, different stokers, etc.......it wasn’t just the B&A that moved them, the Central proper was moving them pretty early on,....they didn’t remove them, they’re just moved inside the smoke box ,...

Thanks Pat, I knew it was something like what you stated

Hi

I do hope that there is enough reservations for this model.  For all the H-10a versions.  Scott's models just keep on improving.  I have one of his latest D&RGW 4-6-6-4's.  The detail is absolutely incredible.

Steve

I asked Scott late last year what the status was.  At the time he stated there was enough to begin design work with production set for the end of 2021.  Of course more reservations will make it more successful and keep costs in check.

I'm not a foamer for any of the H10a's flags.  But I've seen enough HO brass models and photos of this loco to know it will be an absolute 'killer' as done by Scott in O scale!!!   If you were a career plumber and into this hobby, you'd probably swoon at the sight of an engine like this.

Of course...

When Scot initially said he was going to make the P&LE version about 10 years ago I put myself down for one.  Nothing ever became of it so I bought an amazing US Hobbies H-10 at a swap meet for $425.00, a steal for a custom painted and lettered model.  Long story short, I only needed one H so when my name was still on the list when he said he was going to make them, I had to let Sunset know I was no longer interested and I honestly thought the project was kaput.  Sorry guys, I would reserve one but I just don't need another Mike on my pike.
