Scott Mann, can you give us a sign to show this is still in the works?

Bob,

The Silver Meteor is planned for production later this year. Really.

While on vacation last week, I took the train from Atlantic City to Philadelphia and coming home I was surprised to see that the Silver Meteor was departing Philly just a few minutes after my train

Bob,,

Well it didn't happen in 2017 but it will in 2018. The problem has been that typically a run of passenger cars must be in the range of 1000 or so cars. There just aren't that many for the Meteor, but it will be combined with something else to come to the 1000 mark in 2018. Scott and I talked about this a week or so ago.

I'll be taking it from Phila to Fort Lauderdale on March 7.

BobH,

Are GGD interiors painted or one-color (plastic?)?  I know I've seen a couple of interior photos of the SAL cars, just can't find them right now.  And I think I have the color diagrams from Warren Calloway, will look for those too.

Folks,

Even though this is a very small production order, only 75 sets 2R and 3R combined, our factory wants to fast track this project in a few months. So if any of you haven't put in your order, now is the time. Yes, we use individually applied interior seats, chairs, tables and bars.  They are multi colored for your enjoyment. The windows are CNCed from Polycarbonate sheets and have stunning clarity.

Please see our web site for putting in your last minute reservations.

Thank You,

I found a few color photos of the 1968 Meteor I thought I would share.  Can't be that far removed from the 1956 cars.  The B/W photo says 1952 (or was that 62?):

Scott/Bob, has the needle moved at all on this project, itching for an update!

From what I know, it's in the design phase.
