Horizon and Comet Cars in N & HO - Plus a lot more!

[Merged two threads. -gfh]

"When are you guys doing the Horizons?" - every American customer on the phone

"When are you guys doing the Comets?" - also Every American Customer

"When are you guys doing the Denver Ski Train?" - same as above

Well - YOU CAN FINALLY STOP ASKING! (and think of some new ideas for us!)

While this is a multi scale release, I'm tagging this post as N, because Comets and Horizons coming to N is huge.

First order. I'll pick up more when they hit MBK.

Looking to build about 5 trains worth. This order will cover  3.

I was serious about buying entire trains of these.

This is really going to hurt.
I'd like F40's and FL9's in HO
Comets in HO
Horizons in N

By the way will the cab cars have sound, i.e. horns and bells?

Cool, we can model the first season of the Hawkeye Express train!

(Future seasons used Chicago Metra coaches and a Rock Island theme F40)

My wife is going to love me. I guess I can sleep on the couch with arms full of Comets.

@Mr Z , No sound included in the Comet Cab Cars, but our current intention is to make it easy to install a decoder. Whether that is done by a 21-pin/6-pin adapter or easily accessible solder pads hasn't been decided yet. We'll post some updates to the Comet page in a month or so when we have some more information!
