Terrific news--that I didn't need. Still digesting the cost of the B&O Cincinattian set, my allowance for 2016.

Oh, well.

Rex,  Good news. What that really means is early 2017 - the start of a new budget. I was surprised by how many inquiries Jonathan Peiffer and I had about both the Meteor train and extra cars at TCA  York last week.  Some PRR modelers were unaware that the extra coaches and 10 and 6 sleepers  are available correctly lettered Pennsylvania. One person even commented about RF&P coaches but that probably won't be done unless Scott gets some inquiries.

Bob D - I am happy that this has come to fruition. Thank you for your efforts on the project.

Thanks Bob, it's been fun being part of this.

Will we be seeing progress photos/reports as these are being done?

Are GGD cars all track power lighting or is battery power available too?  Lighting will be LEDs right?  I really like the idea of a reed switch and magnetic wand to operate battery-powered LEDs.

Lettering aside, is there an actual difference between the PRR and SAL coach and 10-6 extra cars? And will the sun lounge be made available separately? That was tossed around at some point.

 

No difference except lettering on the SAL, PRR, and RF&P cars.

Maybe the individual cars could be made with loose letter/name/number boards, having all 3 RRs boards in the box so the buyer could determine which cars he wanted to apply???

Bob - great idea but I can hear the complaints now. Added cost and too difficult to glue the letterboards to the cars.

Yeah, how unfortunate.

Put them on so they can be easily removed (without marring the paint), that way folks can make their own boards!!!

That RF&P board would be HUGE.

It's always that way, isn't it?

Bob D and Rex,

Just returned from a walk which usually gives me incentive to resolve issues. After considerable thought, I believe the best solution will be for Scott to offer RF&P cars. Although providing letter boards and car name/number boards for all three roads with the cars seems to be the most logical solution my experience tells me it won't work from a business standpoint for Scott.

I will suggest that Scott offer RF&P cars for those that want them.

Excellent, I'll add one of the RF&P cars to my set!

This is going to make me look at all the consists listed in the books I have to see which/if other RRs were mixed into the Meteor.
