Any word on when these might arrive? I hear some time in December.

I think it will be just before the company dies. Maybe March.
They originally said all outstanding products from all catalogs would ship by April just before they close in May. For a few reasons, I wouldn't expect the S scale stuff to be any sooner than April.
Well, according to the shipping schedule (usually found in the fiction section) the F7's are still due in December.
However, items that were due in October and November still haven't shown up. I suspect the S Scale will be in the last container shipped. After all, the 2019 S Scale was the only product line to get pre-order discounts, so the profit margin is lower than the all the other MTH stuff.
Thanks everyone. It's basically what I thought, and works out better for me as 2020 has been a rough year all around.
Check out the MTH segment of the Virtual York video from October 2020(find with google). Rich and Andy from MTH give an update on the S Gauge locomotives, as of the end of October when the video was made. SW8s in production, may be here by late December or January. Then they say they'll make NW2s, then F7s. Nothing about rest of catalog. Subject to change of course. Have to wait and see.
I am hoping to get a Reading F7 ABA set with scale wheels. Just need to find a Northeastern caboose to go with them.
Any word or updates on the MTH F7s? Last I heard they were shipping from China in March, which would mean a May delivery. Since MTH is closing in May - this would be close.
Got a call last week from MTH that the SP F7s I ordered are in, my credit card has been charged and they have been shipped to my home.
