Any word on the Fox spartan cab GP60?

He has nothing on his website that I could see.  Nor on Facebook that I saw at first-- beyond HO scale.

And a search of TRW turned up a thread from over one year ago.

If I have been living in a cave and missed something obvious I apologise ahead of time.

Or what happened to the Red Caboose models?

The only former Red Caboose product I've seen so far have been the Unimates.

I'm anxiously awaiting the GP60s too but they seem to have fallen off the face of the earth.
Seems to me that when FVM releases them in HO, they're already made and ready to ship. So I've got my pennies put aside just in case.

A friend of mine that actually lives pretty close to FVM told me the other day that FVM is having production issues, what though he didn't know. He said another run of SD70ACes were supposed to be out next but who knows.

I've been waiting for the GP60s too, I'm crossing my fingers that a GP50 might possibly follow sometime in the future.

I have some money set aside for a trio of SP/SSW GP60s whenever the are ready. I hope they do the EMD demo version too, that would be sweet! I'd get a BN GP50 also. Love the easy DCC plug on the GP60M/B and they run great with the Zimo decoders.
