If you happened to browse the One to Twenty Point Me blogspot / website recently [as you might if you were reading the thread New Laser-cut sides for AMS coaches] you would have found this gem:

"Also of note from Accucraft is the fact that time is running out to place your reservation on certain products. While no deposit is required, anyone thinking about purchasing a Live Steam or Electric version of the DSP&P 2-8-0 or EBT #12 2-8-2, or the D&RGW Spreader OV must do so no later than March 31, 2008.

Accucraft tells us that no more than a maximum of 100 units each of the above will be produced, and only the number of units reserved as of the reservation cut-off will be manufactured."

Royce (Quisenberry Station) confirmed this new deadline and also confirmed that my deposit is in for a #12 (Phew - heaves huge sigh of relief!) /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sad.gif

I'm not sure about the "no deposit required" - my understanding is that the only way to get a reservation (and thus a loco) is to send a deposit. :confused:

Poking around the website, I noted that there is a nice photo of the EBT #14 on their product page, but it states they are definitely limited production, probably like #12.:mad:

I'm hoping that the March deadline for #12 means they are planning to build it before #14/15. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif

Seems to vary by the item...no deposit requested for a Mason at this time.

So far as I'm led to believe (from my local Accucraft dealer) the plan is to bring out #12 first. My understanding is that the hoppers are due first--"ballpark estimate" sometime in the fall, and the loco shortly thereafter. I get the impression that Accucraft is very non-commital on these timelines, so it's really anyone's guess. Like anything in this scale, I'll believe it when it's sitting on my doorstep. I was--at the very least--pleased to see line drawings of #12 replace the prototype photo, if only as a vague assurance that someone's been doing some kind of design work on the loco.

Later,

In January at Diamondhead I spoke with Accucraft's Cliff L. who confirmed that #12 would be the first produced but that the timeline was not set in stone. He also told me that the hoppers would appear before the locomotive. I believe I posted this following my visit to the DH extravaganza.
Have fun,
Tom
