They have been available for some weeks - certainly enough for examples to have reached both Britain and Australia. In fact at least one member of the On30 Yahoo Group has done a 'slice and dice' to convert the loco.

Scott,

You must have had a long nap!   Forneys have been here for a while and I have some available right here in Rochester, NY.   E-mail me for info!

Scotty,

This post might explain why I did not receive a reply to the e-mail that I sent to you privately. I have three, two outside framed and one inside framed, all three run great and sound even better!  ;D ;D The e-mail that I sent was asking if you had figured out yet if you could narrow them down to true two foot gauge. ???  After looking at mine I am not sure if this is possible as there is very little room between the wheels and the structural frame. :-\ Looking forward to answer. :)
 
Andre Anderson :) :)

I've had mine for about 4 weeks now in the UK and my second one is on order.
Can't seem to upload a photo of my first one, but you can see some views of it here:
