Mark, do you know how much the old stuff ran?

According to my old Walthers catalogs, GHB's two brass imports (gas-electric and interurban) listed for around $170. Of course, mechanically-speaking, things were just a skosh more primitive back in the 80's :facepalm:



Cheers,
-Mark

Odd that there's not a peep about this project on GHB's website. Then again, said website is damned near as primitive as mine, so perhaps webspertize in not in their canon  :P

Cheers,

No PayPal...

Looks like I'm out.
I don't have a checking account as all the banks around me have excessively high minimum balances.

As is, it is an extreme long shot for me to be able to afford this in the aftermath of a vacation to the UK that I have to work to replenish all that I remove from savings.
Not like I need savings though... My mother will never accept any choice of a car that I make.

Not so fast.  You can always buy a Postal Money Order.  They are as good as cash and anybody who takes cash or checks
will surely take them.  All you have to do is show up at the Post Office with $600+ in cash and they will happily print one up for you.

Hmm... I can print that
up for you. Do you want
two $300 bills, or three
$200 bills...?

The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I know that this engine is in brass by a sketchy manufacturer, but Hey, its a start to me. I hope GHB does well with this release. I may or may not buy some, but the quantity I need may be killed by the price.

Guess I'm gonna have to bite on at least one.  I do want more info on price before I do.   Also, did not know they were out of MD not really that far from me.

I'll take one $600 bill. Fits in the wallet better.

Well...

This all sounds a bit squirrely.   :?

Hopefully, as an importer, GHB will have the model manufactured by one of the well known brass manufacturers, not by some Mickey Mouse outfit.

The discussion of the HO Crusader didn't exactly enhance my confidence.  Neither does the lack of payment options...

Pay $600 bucks for a brass L1 or buy a GHQ pewter L1 and hire someone to assemble and paint it... hmm... wonder which one will actually be cheaper???

While I hope that they garner enough orders that they will consider other steamers such as the K4 among others their choice for a first offering is rather curious.  Just don't know...

I probably have about $250 tied up in my L1 between the GHQ conversion and the Kato mech plus having a guy in Omaha DCC it up for me.
