All of the manufacturers keep slipping their deliveries.  Watch this page for the latest dates.

Model                                             Manufacturer       Scheduled Date     Date Shipped

NYCS 19000 Cabooses   (HO)                 TrueLine Trains         

Latest on the  NYC 19000 Caboose

We have terminated our agreement with TrueLine Trains as they have become non-responsive to our attempts to contact them.  We are working with another manufacturer to build the 19000 NYCS cabooses. Updates will be provided when we have more information.

 And we really, really, really appreciate your patience while we continue to work through it.

    Any further update on the Atlas O-Scale GP-7 3-Rail (Powered and Non-Powered)? The status currently shown as estimated delivery 2nd Quarter 2015 (which ended in June) and we’re now only three weeks until the 4th Quarter. Given that my order was submitted on 18 JUN 14 and full payment was made then through PayPal, we’re now almost 15 months waiting for product already paid for. It would be helpful if at least a more current status was provided.

    • Barry,
      We only have the info on shipping that we are provided by Atlas. They are now showing 2 Qtr 2016 for shipping. We have no control over when manufacturers build or ship. I am on travel this week but will check with them again. Some products are announced for us to take pre-orders with estimated shipping dates and then the manufacturer decides to delay them because they haven’t received enough pre-orders so they slip shipping dates. They do not always keep us up to date on that.
      I will get back to you again next week when I get back home and tell you anything I can find out. I am very sorry that you have waited so long for this loco.
      Thanks, NYCSHS

    True line trains caboose how close are they to having enough for the pre-orders to go into production if we knew what was going a few members might jump in to satisfy that amount

    • They are telling us that it will be in 2017. We have over 900 orders now so that is not a problem. Read the latest NYCentral Modeler to see the details of what they are saying.

    Maybe an oversight…or, maybe not. Accurail has a number of NYC-affiliated roads planned for the upcoming release of their 36′ Double-sheath wood boxcars sometime in the spring. Link and roads are below: (See “Coming Soon” at bottom of page in link)

    1300-series: NYC, B&A, Big Four, MC
    1700-series: NYC&HR, LS&MS, Big Four, B&A
    1800-series: T&OC

    Why don’t you deal w/Athearn ? There Genesis line of F7, F3 And GP 7 are great.

    • Because they won’t sell to us since we don’t have a brick and mortar store. They don’t like web based organizations since they believe they undermine the local hobby shops. A few more years and they will probably start dealing with us.

    Past about time with TrueLine Trains. So many years and so little progress. Please persevere in finding another manufacturer.
