I hope Spring Creek gets their Fox Valley Rock Island custom run in too with these. Been looking forward to getting a couple.

They made a Facebook post yesterday (12/30) saying they will be arriving next week.

"Our resident N Scaler is excited! 🚂  The N Scale Rock Island Auto Rack is arriving in store next week!  We will be contacting everyone that have pre-ordered the auto racks as soon as we can work through the shipment.
We still have some available so check them out on our website at https://www.springcreekmodeltrains.com/product/spring-creek-exclusive-n-scale-fox-valley-models-intermountain-bi-level-auto-rack-rock-island/"

I've been tempted for one, but I have the MTL version and way out of my timeframe.

I got mine in the last few days, but just had time to get them out today. They appear to be to the same quality that the Red Caboose models were previously (same tooling so I'd expect that). Not much to complain about, I'm happy with them.

I just sent the money off for the ScaleTrains auto racks. LOL. I didnt expect them to come in back to back like this.

I might be done buying trains for a while.

Have these already come and gone at Klein's? They aren't even showing up as Coming Soon at this point, but I never got a notification about any of them being in-stock.

You might be sorry---The Scale Trains autoracks ride high just like the MTs.  It is really a shame they did not get this right.

I have not seen them there or at Lombard, for what it's worth.

Well ultimately, if Lombard comes through, Ill have both. lol.  Though it does sound as if the ScaleTrains ones can be solved fairly easily.

Any pictures of the new cars, do they come with body mounts?
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

see nscalesupply  -  they are beautiful - but the ttx yellow on the flats and some racks is too light - they will need weathering....
