Has anyone heard anything about the next container Accucraft is to receive?  It is suppose to have the C-19s in it.

Isn't it about time for the 4-4-0's to show up too.

AND, maybe even some turnouts!

440's are April if we are lucky. They are taking our recommentation that the gas tank is too small and pulling it and replacing it for a larger one close to the C16 which giges around a 40 min run on a test run with a full boiler of water. Tests were done on a Lilly Belle last week here in NJ. Also the tender will be modified to allow a full water bath throughout the whole tender.

WELL SEEE!!!

Jason,

The 4-4-0 you mention, is that the 1:24 Baldwin?

The Lilly Bell was a early release of the 1:20th 4-4-0 in live steam. (not sure but I think before there was even to be a live steam 1:20 4-4-0) but do not quote me on that.

The 4-4-0 is the 1:20.3 model of the SPC #3 and other paint schemes

The Lilly Belle deal was to be 3 months before the Accucraft release. Due to delays at the factory and shipping they are supposed to be shipping in April.

I am more excited that we should see a prototype Masonbogie in June-July Hoping for Stapletons but not holding my breath on that one. Maybe the fall meet.
