I called about the two train locomotive shed this week. I was fully expecting to hear bad news, but the guy knew immediately what I was talking about and said they should have some in 2-3 weeks. So maybe they are still alive?
I put a reminder on my calendar to call mid-January. I'll let you know what I hear.
Yes, they are still around and owned by JusTrains. But in case you haven't noticed, the economy is in the toilet right now and I suspect that folks need to temper their wants, expectations, and demands a bit because my guess is that NONE of the manufacturers in the hobby are going to be grinding stuff out at the rate witnessed in recent years.
