And for people who might wonder why no one has announced an O Siemens Sprinter or Charger it's because Bachmann has a license in HO and Siemens is not interested in licensing in O.

That stinks to hear. I would gladly get a model of that at some point. If you ask me, there isn't much modern equipment in 3-rail, but perhaps it's because it's not as popular, IDK.

But who's to say we can't contact WBB to make a scale Siemens charger. It may not be perfect like a 3rd rail but it could be a start like the Genesis!

FWIW, if Scott thew out a scale F45,FP45 and the SDP40F offering, I bet he would get a LOT of reservations.

Any plausible reason why Siemens is so stingy, an refuses to license to an o manufacturer? There would have to be some plausible reason. I am just curious about the motive, as I have no intentions of modeling Amtrak.

When I saw those photos, I immediately had to put in a standby reservation for a dorm, a sleeper, and a diner. I could see the diner and dorm becoming outrageously expensive in a few years if no re-runs are done.

If my standby reservation isn't met, I'll still be very happy with the Amfleets and baggage I have reserved. Can't wait!

Too much of a bother.

More specifically they are the first company who even cares about licensing their locomotive design for models.  EMD and GE consider it free advertising.  But they are a German company so why do they decides what they decide?  Who knows.  I can understand licensing artwork and Scott has an Amtrak license, but a locomotive design?

I think Scott should just announce them and if/when they send a C&D then he can push back.  At that point he got nothing in the game but an announcement.

Great Idea if it's not YOUR company at risk of a statutory copyright infringement claim.

Is it a copyright?  Or is a it a trademark, or even a patent.  To say I'm going to infringe if you do not defend your whatever is not in and of itself infringement, you actually have to infringe.

Copyright. is a unique interpretation of an idea fixed in a medium. That's this.

A trademark is an unique image or design representing a service or product where source may or may not be known.

A patent is a unique device or process granted by the USPTO having a limited monopoly.

These are short brief definitions that can be expanded upon so not limited to the above.

Updated the GGD web site with some pictures of sample Amfleet and Viewliners. The builder prepared a variety of 2R and 3R cars for our review and we should have them in a few days. We've added some features to these cars:

1. Weather Striping detail added.

2. The switch under the car will turn the red marker lights on and off, the interior lights remain on.

Cars should be done in July, here in August.
