Hey folks,

Just a quick heads-up in case anyone has a Legacy S1 in the American Railroads livery on preorder: according to my dealer, that model is indefinitely delayed due to a discrepancy in the paint job, and the models are still waiting to be shipped from the factory. It's unclear to me if this issue was discovered after the models already arrived in North Carolina and have to be shipped back, or if it was caught before they made the journey east with the rest of the S1 models.

My dealer is also waiting on the Tuscan Red variant, although it's unclear to him if that model is suffering the same delay as the AR variant.

While I was hoping to have had the engine on my layout by now, I'm glad they were able to catch whatever the issue was. Given that we're presumably waiting for a shipment from China, I'm guessing we're looking at a November arrival. <sigh>

Just a friendly PSA in case anyone else was wondering, like me, what was up with the American Railroads S1 not showing up yet.

I had noticed that the “As Built” version seems to be the only one around at the moment! I’m wanting to get the Calendar version, but I have heard of the paint discrepancy on the Tuscan model as well as an apparent misspelling on the American Railroads version. TrainWorld has the delivery date for them being late October/eary November unfortunately… 😕

Well I would be disappointed in the delay BUT I would be more disappointed to get one that had the errors.  While it stinks, it sounds like the issue is being addressed ahead of time rather than at the consumer level.
