Given the 2nd run of the Hiawatha, I'd like to gauge if there is enough common interest to have Scott possibly re-run the Budd Slumbercoaches. 

B&O, CB&Q, NYC, MP, NP, AMTRAK we offered previously. I would be game for a few CB&Q, an Amtrak and an MP.

If you run MP consists, be aware a B&O Slumbercoach ran on the MP as a thru sleeper.

Just an fyi, start budgeting. The latest Amtrak Amfleet and Viewliners are reportely being priced around $300.00/ car due to Aluminum bodies and the ball bearing wheels.

Well, I have to budget to afford Scott’s offerings. I’ve decided they are quite nice - and much better than other offerings. If my memory is correct, there was some disappointment (Belly-aching) that the Amfleet was to be done in plastic. So Scott switched to aluminum and got a boost in reservations. Yep. They are more expensive. Be careful what you wish for !!!

The reason these are hard to find is because there weren't a lot made and should a second run happen, I suspect there won't be a lot of those made either.  Inventory is not a good thing when you see the size of Scott's "warehouse"

I’m guessing this would qualify as one of those “short runs”.  I view this as an opportunity for Scott to tack a 2nd Run of Slumbercoach onto another larger run of passenger sets to reach a more “commercially viable” total run number.  Got to get it offered up with a plan where it could fit into a production run.  Be nice to see some movement on this as the reservation window thru to delivery can be brutally slow.

Scott never seems to have many “leftovers” from any of his runs. With that in mind, I bet his “warehouse” is not much larger than a good sized walk in closet. 🤣🤣🤣

I’m surprised no one has posted an example so I add one. These are really nice models. Email Scott and ask him to do run #2 if you want to see these again. It won’t happen if you don’t speak up !!!  I’ll be in for a CB&Q for my third.

MP not in some sort of blue?  Were they leased from Budd or another railroad?

And the MP/B&O run through sleepers ran later than most.

All the Budd Slumbercoachs were stainless steel.  The MP only owned one.

Those were the only roads that owned Slumbercoaches.  The NYC's were rebuilds of roomette sleepers and were labeled "Sleepercoaches" due to the NYC ceasing Pullman staffed cars.

Scott and I discussed the Budd Slumbercoach yesterday. Here is what I suggest; if you are committed to purchasing one or more e-mail / call Scott and tell him so (e-mail is much better).  My opinion is that they would be done with the B&O Capitol Limited since that will have the Budd dome car and the Budd 16 and 4 sleepers. It is important to do the Budd car extrusions at the same time. Plus it would help accelerate the Capitol Limited in the list of projects.

Trust me, this is imperative for you to do if you want to see the Budd Slumbercoach made again.
