Has anyone been able to successfully order these off the Tangent website? I've been able to put them in my cart and get close to checking out but when I click place order it says Internal Server Error. I really hope they can upgrade the e*commerce part of their website to handle all their new N scale orders. This is very frustrating.
Can't buy then until they are received by tangent. The container is on the water and should be arriving at the warehouse around the middle of September

Nevermind. I misunderstood what they meant about their availability and ordering system

I was able to order the 19 road numbers that I wanted, and I got a confirmation of my order.   :D

However, when I tried to order using Internet Explorer I got an error, even after I created an account.  So, I tried it with Firefox, logged in, and it worked!  But, the page where you click on the image to open the page where you could add the model to the shopping cart was a little weird.   :o

Peter, we regret that the site was down yesterday but everything is in order today!  When you place more than six car products into the cart it will calculate a discount for you.  And the checkout will work.

Thank you for your patience with us during this growth period.  And thank you for your pending business with us!

Best wishes,

Awesome - I think I will pick up an undec to letter for one of the four cars that N&W and UP swapped.

Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

Whew... that was close! He's doing H-100-19 in the original scheme rather than new numbers in H-100-16. The -19s are two years later, and I was already pushing the envelope on my modeling period with the -16s.

[...sigh...]

I might bite anyway, and confiscate any magnifying glasses brought into my train room by visitors.   :trollface:

Another 25 quad hoppers arrived from Tangent today.  Like the ones before them, these are destined to hauling southern Idaho sugar beets.

Also, I was looking through my photos, and discovered this "non-preferred" way of unloading the sugar beets.   :D

Beautiful model, but I'd like to meet the 14 year old that can talk his old man into shelling out $600+ for a 20 car coal train.

I'm glad I'm an old guy and already have 100 hoppers.  Yeesh.

What... we can’t have nice things unless everybody can afford them? The 14 year old can start off with Atlas TrainMan cars. I’m glad Tangent is making models for the adults (with disposable income) in the crowd.

Mike,

Your post got me thinking that I really need a lot more of the "oxide red" hoppers compared to the black rotary hoppers for my sugar beet trains.  M.B. Klein (ModelTrainStuff) has several of the first run hoppers still available.  I wound up purchasing some duplicate numbers of the H-100-16 hoppers with the intent to replace the last digit of the road number on the factory painted cars with a different digit using Microscale decals. 

I am not sure how well that is going to work yet, but I have noticed the sugar beet trains tend to utilize more of the earlier classes, and it looks like Tangent might be making there way from the earlier classes to the newer classes.  The two releases of the N scale cars have mirrored the HO hoppers, and I think(?) Tangent started the HO scale hoppers with the earlier classes.  I remember Tangent donated some of the HO scale hoppers from the initial run for the raffle at the 2010 Union Pacific Historical Society convention in Boise, ID, but I do not remember which class the hoppers were numbered for.   :oops:

And, for those on a budget, the M.B. Klein price allows you to obtain a 20 car unit train for a little bit less than $500.   ;)
