Sorry Marty. Unless you like the sound of crickets this isn't the place to ask. You have entered the no response zone!   I'm still waiting for the Blue comet caboose from the same catalog as you.  I have kind of resigned myself to the "It gets here when it gets here " attitude.

Yep.  I thought I'd give it a chance.

I've had the engine since I believe late 2010 or early 2011.  6 years for a caboose to come out is painful.

Seems like this section of the forum is a dud.  Rich should save the storage and delete it.

Thanks for the update.  I decided to try my first tinplate from that same catalog with the 263E and 2600 passenger cars shown with it (painted in similar Lionel colors).  I also ordered the caboose and reefer you are looking for, though they won't be quite as nice of a match to the engine I ordered vs. the one you have from 2010.

I had a shipping schedule item that was actually worse and/or more confusing.  Being originally from Long Island NY, I ordered the HO Club car (LIRR Boxcar) from 2016, as I have still got a passing interest in HO.  Over the last 1 1/2 years or so, I kept a rough eye on it, asked at York, etc.  I was pretty sure it had never shipped, but recently started to worry I might have lost track of it and just never received mine.

Then I looked up the number in the shipping schedule and it says (as recently as last week) "May 2016".  Now I was seriously worried!

Asked at the booth on Thursday.  Yeah, it didn't ship yet, that date is definitely wrong (which is better than if it really had shipped and I just didn't receive mine).  I think the guess at the booth was end of this year or early next year for that item.

Well I'm pretty much having some fun with this due to the fact I've been waiting for this caboose to be made since the engine was released almost 8 years ago.  I can wait but it's fun to poke the badger every now and then.

Marty,

  I have been eyeing the Blue 263E P3 for a while, thought about pre ordering it and decide to wait till it actually came out, looks like a made the right decision.  I like the lighted Caboose, will probably want one also!  Got to tell ya I quit Pre-Order Tin Plate cause of the extra long wait and sometimes the item never gets made at all!

Doc Davis,

I want the Blue Lighted Caboose also, it's not happening for Christmas buddy!

The new Blue 263E with lighted Caboose will make a great addition to our FT over head layout, if it actually ever gets here!

Dave4581 & Marty,

Got to tell ya however the 2600 cars advertised are not going to match the new Blue 263E Perfectly, the match is the 800/2800 Rolling Stock.  I believe that was a misprint in the advertisement.

Maybe MTH forgot to cancel it, or maybe it will show up next week? . I hope Pat still has my order and phone number in his system... Maybe they need some more pre-orders, so let's go everyone!

Somebody is going to get lucky, because it looks like the 2015 Gerber reefer will ship this month!

Just an update from Rich Foster yesterday at the WGH show in Pittsburgh...

He indicated that these items are coming.  He also said that he was very happy with the quality of these items so that's worth the wait. 

Thanks Rich for the info!
