"When are you guys doing the Denver Ski Train IN N????"  :D

I second this! Though the wife would kill me, but you only live once!

@pilpro

Ah crap! I made a big mistake there.......I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but no Amtrak California in N scale.

Copy and paste is one heck of a drug I tell ya......

We decided to not go ahead with the Amtrak California dinettes because we don't anticipate much demand for them, but that could change if we get enough people asking for them.

@rapidomike what's the best email address to use to register our vote for the Am Cal cars and also the Ski Train coaches?

Thanks

@James Costello , the best way to go about this is the contact form at https://www.rapidotrains.com/contact-us - select "Idea for products" as your reason for emailing. Lots of eyes see those messages, and Roslyn keeps a tally in an excel file about product suggestions!

That puts a new twist on the old wish about hoping to live to see a particular model produced.

Reminds me of some lines from the movie The Hunt for Red October:
"Your Russian's going to make it to America, Mr. Ryan. He's going to die within sight of it."

The web site isn't clear - can we pre-order through our local hobby shop as well?

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

@nickelplate759 of course! As long as your local hobby shop carries our products, you can order there.

@rapidomike Any chance the NPCU and/or Cabbage will ever be run in N scale. The Pacific Surfliner that ran the Horizon/Amfleet consist sometimes used them on one end.

Not seeing a link for the N scale version of the Ski Train, loco or cars. Am I just blind?

Congrats on what looks to be a much anticipated set of releases. @rapidomike

@basementcalling , just HO unfortunately. There is a chance that we will do it in the future, but we don't have any concrete plans at the moment.

Why I asked. I was confused by the pictures in the lead post as everything else is HO and N. Damn HO guys get all the hot ski bunnies. :)

Can you PLEASE make the Northern Pacific 10000-series Wood Boxcar in N-Scale?

 :)

Can you please explain the difference between NARROW and WIDE? Is it a door thing?
