This past year we saw the remaining stock of American Fruit Packers reefers find happy homes. There were just a few of each of the past 5-6 years left for what seemed to be a long time. Now you will find only a couple of cars available. I pulled the final three to create a sort of ‘starter’ pack for those that may just now be starting. And yes, there are folks like that! This long running, and very popular series, releases only one time each year, and I try to do that around the fall harvest time. This year’s car ‘Olympic’ label has seen very strong reservations so be sure to get yours if you have waited. They will be here next month.
In the last Newsletter, I told about the reservations for the Spokane Portland and Seattle C-636’s going very quickly. Well, there are no more DCC ‘Gold’ unless you would like the No Number version. And if you missed my urgent comments about this and still want a Gold version with sound and DCC, then you’ll need to email me to be on a waiting list. There are only a few Gold No Number versions available so hurry please. These are now planned for delivery just after the new year, and they will be worth the wait!
The Walt Disney Family Museum holiday cars are fewer then ten each remaining for any that are showing ‘in stock’. This year’s car is being released December 2nd at the museum in San Francisco. There is always a push for the final cars during that event and this is your ‘heads up’ to jump on board if you have not. A locomotive and caboose are planned down the track sometime.
Northern Pacific ‘Mainstreeter’ coaches – there are only three left! Diners are here now and everybody needs to eat!
Lastly on this topic, the National Park Series 2016 locomotive from Fox Valley was a huge success and there are less then 10 left. And just as important, less than 8 Centennial Tour Gift Boxed train sets remaining! So don’t say I did not warn you.
