Still no word on a release date or even a teaser photo for these new locos?  Huh?

My wife rented Disney's 1956 movie, "The Great Locomotive Chase" last weekend, and now I really, really, REALLY want a fleet of American 4-4-0's!  Tongue




Like this?


Theres my 4-4-0 fleet so far.

The "revised" 4-4-0's were announced a year ago, but still not available?  Huh?  I see they are now listed as "coming soon" with price from $239 - $315.  For that much, they better look WAY better than the current models.

Just checking in after a few years off this forum, the 4-4-0 is still a serious modeling quandary of mine and I am still very much looking forward to this model.
The classic 4-4-0 balloon stack locomotives were probably what attracted me to railroading as a kid, and years later they nothing revives that early spirit quite like those early engines.  With all of the current appeal of modern high tech railroads, the early 4-4-0s have that broad and universal primordial grip that is tough to deny.
I look forward to seeing how this model will come out.
I plan on modifying a couple of these to mid 1860s fashion and really taking advantage of the small motor hidden away.

There's a light at the end of the tunnel!   Apparently the new 4-4-0's will be available in November.   You can see some photos of them about half-way down this page:
