Interesting, neither these nor the latest F7 announcements are on the IMRC website yet. Must have gone to dealers before posting on the website.

Well, seeing as to they're using all HO scale photos, I'm not too hopeful.  Too many QC issues over there recently.

Apart from the SOUTHERN FP7s I have on order, I've decided to boycott IM until they make good on my WM F7B. (note that another release of WM F7s has just been announced) ::)

If you look, you'll see that it all the units they are re-running are the ones that had the shell problems.  I would think that you will get your replacement shells about the same time.  I don't have any information, I just seams likely.

Hopefully you're right. But until they make good on it, it remains hypothetical. I let them know directly of my decision. So hopefully they'll get back to me soon with a date.

It appears to me that many of the upcoming F7's are the same ones that had the infamous B unit mixup. I would guess that the F7B replacement shells will accompany this F7 delivery.

IMRC's latest announcement shows 10 F-7 schemes; 9 of these are repeats, all 6 from the first announcement and 3 of the 6 from the second announcement.  Looks like only the NP is a new scheme for the F-7.  While several of these were popular and sold out, I'd agree that they are probably re-running them again so soon to get replacement B-units shells to replace the bad ones.

As for the 60' flat car, I'm glad to see it has finally seen the light of day.  Hopefully they'll have samples (even if they are only undec pre-production units) at the NTS and the NSC shows in July and August.

Glad they did the Trailer Train and not the TTX one's first. I can sit this one out and see what kinda quality level they are at before buying. Now, I'm gonna need some plain white Sprinter vans to load the cars with. See alot of them on CN being imported on the 60' flats and 89' flats... one out of two ain't bad.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

I hope they do a brown Trailer Train version, but maybe that won't matter for me, as I have the AC models kits for this.

Did Alan Curtis ever made this car?  I would have bought the kit but I never saw any suitable for ottx/qttx cars.
