Using his own printer he's not subject to Shapeways pricing by the micron.   You're seeing a paradigm shift here in case you're not paying attention, a 2X better product for about half the price.

I noticed that the manufacturer released a pretty good video.
Has some good drone shots of the first test unit sold to P&H.   This TP-56 is shorter and has the internal fuel tank.

Worth watching.


More partnerships in building in USA.... unfortunately... in the intervening months.... I haven't see any evidence they have built/sold any more switchers.  (and hope they will).

Hahaha.

And now..... a ride-your-own-train manufacturer named Railpup is making one!

You can put a TP56 is your backyard and haul the grandkids.
