"These units includes Intermountain's newly revised and tooled mechanism for DC (DCC ready plug'n play), DCC installed, or DCC with ESU LokSound operations. You get to choose the type of power chassis you want!"

You could include this under the same heading: http://www.wheelsotime.com/step-van/. I don't remember any chatter or announcement about this vehicle.
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.

Only available from the Shapways site, apparently, a new Custom Editions by Wheels of Time Shapways store was opened to market the step van models.

Might we see more Wheels of Time vehicles on Shapways?

Somebody made cast metal kit versions of this long ago. I still have 4 of them.

Yes...

Although it represents a slightly older 1965 model, you would be referring to the Gloor Craft Models (ex Quality Craft Models) stock number 193 Chevy Step Van kit.

I'm really interested to know if Intermountain's new tooling for their F units will finally lower the ride height?

I pre-ordered the 917 because why not? I figured if the dude who runs Wheels of Time is successful with this, we can see other good stuff come from him as well. Plus, the new Intermountain chassis is supposed to correct the ride height now.

Wheels of Time has enough pre-orders to get the WP "Fab Four" produced. Did anyone else plop their name down?

Missed this one - Having modeled the fab 4 for MSTS, I would have gladly ordered one of each. :(

Cheers!

Did any of these four Western Pacific F7 locos ever pull a passenger train? Perhaps a remnant of the California Zephyr?

Or were they solely used for hauling freight?

Somehow I doubt it, at least there is no mention here of the F7s (FP7s yes):

The 4 units ran freight between Stockton and Milpitas Ca in these paint schemes from 1978 until 1982 when they where donated to the museums in Niles (918), Rio Vista (917), Sacramento (913) & Portola (921). Portola now has 917 & 921.

"Thread Drift"

To be honest, I'm a little surprised and disappointed that WoT hasn't released the PC-90 Piggy Packer fitted with logging grapples.  :x
