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?
