I remember hearing the Cab Forward was due out around Xmas, and axctually shipping on the Day before Christmas.  Is that still on schedule?  Did anyone get theirs yet?  I'm thinking not, cause someone would have posted a bunch of pictures!!!!

Charles. Are we starting a pool to see who posts the 1st acutal Post-Release Cab Forward photo? Should we include the date as well?

Barring anyone associate, connected or works directly with Accucraft....I say Thu. Jan. 10 for a photo


Any earlier then that person with the deep pockets can front the prize money!

I don't know about you lot on that side of the pond, but Gordon Watson informed me the day before yesterday that my Cab-Forward #4274 was being loaded into a container as we spoke. :)


So I'm looking forward to seeing mine in the first week of February.


To put my bid in, I'd say that someone will post the pix on Jan 13th at 0800 your time.

The race is to see who to see "who posts the 1st acutal Post-Release Cab Forward photo".

My guess-- January 23rd.

Try again.....


DH and Cabin Fever might result in photos sooner than that


 


So, it will probably come down to the time of day.

 Only if the container arrives, and clears customs by then (CF & DH meets). Seems like when you really want an engine for a meet, it will show up a few days after... /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crazy.gif We'll see.... I would think someone on the west coast will post first, while the east is still in transit.

Carl,


No stinking SG for me, too small for my likes /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/w00t.gif, but it sure is a nice looking engine.  Waiting on the K-36 live steam...../DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif

Finally getting a "ride on" steam engine.  Are you going to get permission from the housing authority to re-stake the fence around the yard.


 


Overnight for CF- deep pockets: like paying VAT in UK.

When I spoke to Ada at Accucraft today and coughed up my money, she said my CF would ship on Monday 07 January. She indicated that if they had your money in hand, your engine would be on the UPS truck. I expect mine to arrive on Thursday 10 January. I don't plan to post photos. I expect it to look like the prototype that Royce had at my last meet, except for having the AC-11 engine number. Plenty of photos of the prototype model have already graced this forum previously. The better photos will be from Charles at Cabin Fever with me and Alan R. doubleheading a PFE reefer block. We plan to have enough cars to split the train for triple heading if a third (or fourth) CF shows at CF.
