Dear All,
Well, sort of...
They have landed ans ar in US Customs. (Looks like Bucksco was right...!)
We'll get them out as soon as they're released. At least you no longer have to worry about shipwrecks and pirates!
Anticipate!

Let me be the 1st to say:
Thank You to the captain of the ship for getting it here.  Smiley
Thanks to the pirates for leaving the ship alone,  to arrive intact.  Grin
And to customs for hopefully a very short hold on Bachmann's container. Lips Sealed
And last but not ..........O you no, to the Back man and company....... Thanks, You have tough me anticipation.  Roll Eyes
I can rest at ease now knowing I'll have a complete, fantastic looking consist. A K27 to start it and caboose to end and complete it.  Grin
Thanks  Wink

Bob I don't understand why you had to make such a comment. Are you trying to cause trouble?  people ask questions for a reason. If you had read all the questions asked about the subject maybe you would better understand why questions are asked. if you really wanted to know why so many questions were asked about the caboose maybe you should of asked the individual. This is the reason I very rarely ask questions on a public forum. Just think what a beginner is thinking about the comments you made.

Nope, not cause trouble...but just a comment after reading much discussion on the caboose...if someone feels it  applies to them....perhaps there is a reason he/she feels that way.  Perhaps i am whinning....but...

Uh-oh  Embarrassed looking at my self, it is oh so easy to do that!  Example using another item - am getting one of the Anniversary 4-6-0 locos: I like it, am glad to have it to get, will greatly enjoy having it; but, probably the second thing that falls out of my mouth when talking about the loco is, "Something about that air compressor piping doesn't look right . . . "   
Then again, Kathy says that commentary about the piping leaves my reputation intact.
(is that a good thing she's saying about me, intact reputations are good, aren't they Huh??) Wink

We go through this process every time something new is announced. The complaints, whining, etc. are, for me, a source of amusement. I love it.
Okay Mr. Batchman, when are you going to get off your duff and get us something new???
Hah! Is this a great hobby, or what?

Try tracing the piping on the 2-8-0. It's quite amusing. The feedwater lines from the tender go straight into the firebox, and it just gets more convoluted from there. They've gotten better since then, but I still wouldn't recommend their designers moonlight as plumbers.  Cheesy

Hey Mr. B

I will attempt to get this thread back on track

Has shipping to dealers started yet?  Customs has had long enough.
Time to start running with new caboose. Grin Grin

I agree with you rslater.
If the custom boys and girls have them much longer, they may just want to keep them all for themselves. You won't let this happen ?, will you  Mr Bach Man. ? Cry
I just purchased 4 idler cars and 2 open end pipe gondolas to go with the rest of the freight sitting in the yard.  Cheesy but it can't leave the yard until it has its CABOOSE. Sorry I didn't mean to shout....... Yes I did,  Grin

Relax. They arrived in Philadelphia last Thursday and are shipping this week, and it's not even September yet!

Would have posted this sooner but the Bach man and I just returned from Durango. Couldn't take another day of pacing back and forth on the loading dock so we had to get away!   Wink


Sorry - couldn't find Dan - but we found this:


Just kidding ! We were attending dealer seminars with our good friends from Soundtraxx


We did take a nice train ride:


The caboose is shipping!
