Have any of you bought the USAT SD-70 UP Heritage Series engines?  Are they hard to get?  Is it hard finding a store that has them in stock?

They have not yet been released. The date just keeps getting moved back. Latest I saw they would be available on March 26th.  It would probably be best to just reserve one with your favorite dealer and wait it out.

Rod,
That is what they are going to do.  Really doesn't bother me too much,since they are one of a kind paint schemes anyway,but I sure like that S.P. version.

Just to let everyone know, I stopped into Charles Ro today and I asked when the Heritage Series was coming out.  The person I spoke with said they thought it wasn't going to hit shelves until the fall!!  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/cry.gifThat's not official, just speculation.  I was going to order the heritage engine thinking I would wait a month or so but I'm not waiting 6 months!  I'm just going to get the regular UP version that's out now.  Maybe I'll get the heritage next year....

Like I said, they just keep getting pushed back.  The original release was supposed to be last November.

". . . . . Thats only because the USA trains engine is a SD70MAC..   they are putting the paintscheme on the loco they have,  even thought its not 100% prototypically accurate..  . . ."

You would not think UP would have approved the license then !      Unless there actually is not much difference,  if majority is under the hood  !?

Even visually, the locos are quite different..  Nose is different, radiators are different...  UP doesn't care about the accuracy to that extent.

So we got one clerk at  CharlesRo  speculating  in the fall !  And now one (or same)  stating in a couple wks ?      Sounds like one of our local hobby shops  depending on which clerk you talk to you get a different story  . .  more times than not I think it is their (our local shop) boss that feeds misinformation to his staff.

In this case,  how about splitting the difference in timelines  . . . .  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif      


good luck,
