I call it stupid of the pig.

Limit 1?  (Doing my best Larry the Cable Guy impression) "What the hell is this?, Russia?"  ;)

When will more be available?

Not sure anyone here is modeling PRR's Octoraro branch, but anyone who does will need at least a dozen of these filled with manure for the mushroom farms!

I'm interested on modeling offal. Dave, did you ever read about that in TKM? I know they were steel bottom gons, but still pretty acrid.

What is was is my way of making sure that someone had the opportunity to get one given knowing several people that would snatch them all up. Because of the holidays and end of year, I could not get enough material in to support more than one sheet. I now have material inbound so I'll offer another run for Amhearst or in Feb. If someone wants them, they should let me know so I can plan for it in production. Otherwise the next 18 will be the end of the item. BTW, there is one left in the store right now.

What I am concerned about is what is happening with the decals. Three dozen people requested decals, but most have not completed their order. Worse, several people significantly reduced their orders. So planning the correct amount is hard without pulling a BLI pay before I make routine. And for the record, That will NOT be done on normal items.

If anyone is interested, I will offer a 12-Pack with a good price break and include the decals too. Email me DIRECT, not by PM please.

Bob,

I don't model Octoraro, so I don't see needing more than a handful at most.  Just pointing out a fun little Pennsy fact.

So planning the correct amount is hard without pulling a BLI pay before I make routine. And for the record, That will NOT be done on normal items.

It might be because of the payment options.  I just got the email on the 3rd/4th (two different emails) and when I go to the store the only option I have for payment is to snail mail a check.  Considering there have been no real business days since the receipt of the email then it will still be a few days before the USPS can deliver the check (though, truthfully, I hadn't planned on sending it until Monday).  If there were an option to change the payment to CC or Paypal, it would be paid already.

Edit:
  Just as a clarification. I'm not complaining, but just pointing out that the reason you might not be seeing any decal order completions is because others could be in the same situation as I and the check might literally be in the mail.  IIRC, most of us either had to or ended up choosing the payment by check method in order to get the checkout to finish.

P.P.S.
  I also tried just to cancel the order and make a new one but then it wanted to charge me $8 shipping instead of $2 so I did not complete that.
