All,

Eastern Seaboard Models has a relationship with Portman Hobbies.  As such, we are able to purchase the two Rapido exclusive-run 10-5 sleepers decorated for Conrail and CSX and offer them to Railwire members for $40 each.  Reservations are going quickly at Portman .. so if interested, orders must be in by noon EDT on September 15.  Send an email to Rapido-OCS@esmc.com with the Rapido item number desired (#504077 for the Conrail car, #504078 for the CSX car), and include your Railwire handle.  Maximum of one per scheme per member — so you can order either car or both cars, but not multiples of either.  The cars are due the last week of December, and probably will be in hand the first or second week of January.  Invoices will be sent via PayPal when the cars are received by ESM.

*** NOTE: should the ESM orders exceed the available quantity at Portman on the 15th, the shorted quantity will be sold based on chronological sequence of the orders, so don't delay if you want one or both of the cars.  This offer is open only to Railwire members. ***

UPDATE 9/14 — Reminder, tomorrow is the deadline for getting your orders in.

UPDATE 9/15 — Reminder, today at noon EDT is the deadline for getting your orders in.


UPDATE 9/15 — Orders closed.

UPDATE 2/16 — Spoke with Portman Hobbies today, the cars were shipped to ESM at the end of last week.  They should be here no later than Wednesday.  PayPal invoices will be sent as soon as the cars arrive, and cars will be shipped the next business day after payment is received.

UPDATE 2/18 — The cars are in stock.  Need zip codes from the following members so that PayPal invoices may be generated: @RSWController @daniel_leavitt2000 @Csxmtsub @learmoia.  The OCS email address is now invalid, so email to me at BryanB@esmc.com.

Shipping will be the standard ESM actual USPS Priority rates.  Between $5 and $8 within the United States, and USPS Priority Mail International rates from New Jersey to the destination on foreign orders.

The BN cars are through regular channels and not exclusively through Portman.

That's a pretty sweet deal, I wish they had something along the lines of the NS.

Quote from: learmoia
Cool announcement.. but this is where I prefer painting my own...

4 MFGs doing 4 portions of a train end up with 4 shades of a color on a train that was all painted at the same location with the same color and brand of paint.

I hole heatedly support the effort.. but I'm going to get the Undec..  ~Ian

.. Fine.. Here's $40... ;)

I asked in the e-mail, but I figured I'd ask here too to urge others to jump in..  Can we combine shipping with ESM Items when the time comes?

No.  This is a stand-alone offer.

A head's-up — The cars are delayed another three weeks, so figure that they will be in hand the last week of February.
