In addition to what Santaigo listed above, I have to say I am really impressed with the pilot on the Seaboard model. I'm guessing the UP City trains have a similar pilot design but I have not seen the UP units posted.

Nice to see the B&O and Milwaukee unit.

Marty,

The UP's are very nice. I wanted a set of San Francisco's but already bought several sets and ran out of $. But if one comes available might have to splurge again. Or maybe next time. Enjoy.

Some additional photos of the Rockford O Scalers B&O E-6 A/B set.  Notice that we have used black electrical tape on the inside of the car-body windows to block the view inside.  Also, closer coupling of the A and B units was achieved by reversing the coupler box mounting bracket on both units.  Finally, the crew “complexion” was improved with additional painting and the parking brake wheel was removed from the cab interior as only the EMD FT had that feature.FFDCCEB7-7452-42CB-B90C-EE51061624C06103CA6F-FE51-44DA-8B15-50CF4357318E80B313BB-E596-493F-A9A6-C15C929DF5102CA03DCA-41D3-4B22-928B-5AF889D8C2A518AD55C4-8879-4155-AB17-FA4A8EC8CA7C

Scott, based on these fabulous pictures, I reckon you’d get a fair number of orders if you announced a re-run tomorrow! 😉😊

Did anybody get a Southern E6 in Tuxedo livery? 

Please keep the photos coming, folks, and thanks for sharing them.

Yes Steve, somebody got a SR Tuxedo model as I had ordered one but was unable to take delivery so it became available. Scott didn't show it in their leftover inventory so it must have been picked up. Whoever was lucky enough to get this one, please post a photo or two.  Thanks

Equally as impressive is the WSL NYC Despatch Shops covered hopper.  Nice to see a resin kit getting some serious layout time.

When will we see an announcement for a 2nd run of these beauties?

Norm

I doubt you ever will. with so few of certain roads will shock you for reruns desired. the mopac versions garnered only  the following models    5A 3B   2r     5A   4 B   3r.  If you were interested why  didn't you reserve in the first  run. it has taken 6 + years to do the 2nd run of  E7 modes.

The models are nice, but I’m still not a fan of the QSI sounds. They don’t sound correct to my ears.

I am with you on the sounds / smoke. But they can be adjusted if you are wiling to waddle through the QSI 400+ page Manuel , it's that ludicrous to  print something like that.  this whole thing with sound at times is a lot of hype but people want it. Most can not even figure out how to adjust the volume to a decent level , get in a room and have 6 or more all running the sound on high and try to talk.  We had one person show up and run an N&W J with smoke the only one left was him in the room full of smoke. We finally ended up at the Bar.

Not everyone can afford 3,4 AB units at once. One hopes for a second run to be able to get those 3rd or 4th road beauties. And as a counter, the Alco PAs are coming - prob less than 2 years since 1st delivered. It can happen. I missed the first run as I was tapped out on other Sunset expenditures. I’m happy to have that second opportunity. And I think when people SEE these E6 beauties, they realize theyReally missed out !!!!

Yes and Scott offers the best lay away bar non. He never ask for deposits and it took over a year for the E 6 to materialize, might I suggest to start saving wen you place your reservation and when they get here go to the lay away plan and pay it off.  This is better than placing a reservation and have 9K tied up for years.

What lay away plan and how exactly does it work?

This is the first I’ve heard of it and not seen it mentioned anywhere on the website.

We aren’t all flush with cash and any of us based in Europe are also faced with exorbitant freight charges plus import duties and taxes that can add another 40-50% to the cost, (plus an exchange rate in the UK falling through the floor right now).

As the Sunset and GGD locos and cars get better and better, it would really help (and benefit) to be able to have an idea of just what you will get for your money. I mentioned to Scott about having a photo gallery to show off the wonderful Sunset and GGD products and it may get around that ‘leap of faith’ that holds people back from ordering? The recent Meteor cars were excellent, but how many people are holding back from ordering the upcoming Super Chief because they don’t quite know what they will get for their money?

With the E6, I would certainly have ordered a few more, even for roads I don’t model, because they are just such fine looking locos and I guess I’m not the only one feeling that way after looking at these wonderful photos you’ve all so kindly shared here. As TrainBub said, when people get to see the actual production photos of the E6s they will realise what they missed and a photo gallery of previous productions may help negate that situation in the future?

Thanks for taking the time to shoot and post your vidoes Frank.

I did end up purchasing the C&NW E6's (in three rail) but was wondering what your group is going to do for passengers cars for the roads that do not have passenger cars (RTR) available?

I know you were selling off an IC set of cars at the last March Meet.

Just curious on your thoughts on the subject of passenger cars.

Thanks.

The lay away plan is no published , but you have to ask him based on what you can agree on for your particular situation. I have done up to 90 days that worked for me.As long as you say you may need more time he just wants you to follow thru with your plan. He will work with you.

Would love to have been in a position to buy a set of these AT&SF units - simply stunning!

Thank you Scott and Jonathan for more beautiful locomotives.  Please keep these photos coming!

Just got off the phone.  Hopefully I will have a set of SFWB on its way this week.  Awaiting the dust settling after they ship the engines.  I guess standby.  Fingers crossed.

What a week.  I was able to purchase the SFWB A&B.  It will complement my Legacy F Units.  Pics to come

QSI is a mess.... Thy don't know the difference between complex and complicated... ESU FTW. 

Everyone agrees, except the people who run regular DC 2-rail which QSI is still the best.  There are still a significant number of 2-railers who are DC or nothing.  Enough that they make a project go or no go.  

He is going to have to change sometime in the future unless QSI decides to change.  The availability of chips is drying up and Scott has to buy something like 15-20 thousand for QSI to make any more.

QSI makes more than model railroad circuit boards. The circuit boards in this TwiVision transit headsign odk are QSI:

Note that I was quite surprised when I saw that.

I wish Scott would show photos of each different E6 paint scheme that he produced. Some of the available schemes are yet to show up on this thread. I will keep checking in.

I would also express my 'thank you' to Sunset for getting these delivered before I got too old to enjoy. Life is good!!!

And ......

one can always do payments ahead of completion of model. I might make a couple of early payments when production starts and during production. When models are ready to ship I send in a final payment. 

Lots of way to to make it work.

The (2) Burlington E5's I received are top notch Silver Arrow and Silver Swift. Also the Missouri Pacific E6 AB set #7002. Thanks to all that contributed in making them. 

Have a pair of Rock Island to still open.

Your welcome on the contribution to the Mopac sets

I was out of town and just got home and access to my tablet. A belated thank you to Scott for posting the photo mug shots. 

Hope you will consider a 2nd run in the future. The units look so much better than the little diagrams on your website. Sunset really came through on this one.

Leon

OK, new E6 owners, dumb question.

Where is the battery hatch and smoke on/off switch?

Maybe I missed it, but I cannot seem to find a second hatch. I did find the TMCC/Conv, Prog/Run and sound volume, but that is it.

I want to remove the battery and make sure the smoke is in the off position before I operate the engines.

Thanks.
