Yet Another PCM Delay!

PCM Alco PA's have now slipped from March 2008 to May 2008.

Geez, this only took what, three weeks to delay the delay?

Okay, but is anyone really surprised?  No, really....

This probably isn't the last delay either.

Actually I am surprised that they keep moving release dates around. Astonished actually. Don't they understand this is a PR nightmare?

I also don't get the constant cries for "reservations" . . . nobody else does this (2nd PR nightmare).

The success BLI had in HO keeps me hoping, but I have to admit PCM has the strangest PR policy that I've seen in this "industry" in decades ...

That's exactly what I mean.  They've established a track record for themselves that I think will be difficult, if not impossible, to overcome.

Credibility?
Lower than a politicians approval numbers.  Mattel Toy Co. stock looks like a sure winner compared to this debacle...

After the Bankruptcy fire sale, a reputable company like Enron or American Motors will get the tooling.

It's the boy who cried wolf all over again... or is it Chicken Little...?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.
