This Slumbercoach request/re- run petition thread has been Absolutely fascinating to follow. It Began in the Milwaukee Road run#2 thread. I added my comment that it won’t get any traction there as Those interested in Slumbercoach run 2 won’t ever see that. I said needs own thread. The new thread was started ONLY one week ago and built some considerable momentum. WOW !!! One week after the thread started, Scott responds to our voices !!!!!!  Slumbercoaches now up for reservations - and an expanded choice list.
AWSOME !!!!

Lets hope adding Run to B&O offering helps bring both projects to fruition in a more expeditious fashion.  Be happy for a second chance  

 OK !!! So now everyone knows the old expression —— “talks cheap”........ let’s place those reservations And ensure this project doesn’t stall !!!!!

I appreciate your suggestion in the MR thread to add a unique one to the Slumbercoach. I greatly appreciate Scott giving the project another run for those of us that have missed out.

You said it best, talk is cheap. I order my first 5 (2 BN, 2 CB&Q and 1 MP). Likely will add more once I hear from Scott. Stoked for this project!

OK, I have the Slumber Coaches Up on the GGD web site. Since we have to re-tool this car and we only expect 100 - 150 reservations, they cost a little more. The tools were lost right after the first run when the factory changed hands and destroyed all our Aluminum car tools. But that's another story.

Thanks for listening Scott. My orders are in.

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.

Thanks for being the first to “pipe up” to trigger this 2nd run of Slumbercoaches. Sometimes our “one off” wishes come true. This one caught A LOT of people’s attention - it caught fire. So Cool !!!!!!      
We all WIN.

Just talked to Scott and requested that Amtrak Phase III be added to the order form.  He already got permission from Amtrak to do so.  I'll be ordering at least one now.

I swore phase III was on there yesterday when I ordered a penn central and an Amtrak, but the link they pops up with your name and what I ordered only had a red 1 next to penn central
