Odd thing about the trains, they're not listed in the Carolwood store, they are on completely separate web site so I would not have found them. All look great and my "I WANT" buzzer is going off. I saw no deadlines to order but there must be one, Please enlighten us CP173.
The Carolwood store will eventually migrate to this new site. I'll ask Michael to put a link to the new site from the old one so that people can find it.
As for deadlines, the ordering cut-off will be about a month before Accucraft goes into production. They haven't given me that date, so I can't tell you. I suspect that it will be around September, but that's just a guess.
Once we place the order with Accucraft, though, that will be it. If someone wants one of these after then, they'll probably have to find them on the secondary market. So, if your "I want" buzzer is going off pretty strong, I suggest not waiting until the last minute to place a deposit. While the FWRR trains and hand car are not limited edition, the odds of Accucraft making any more in the next few years are remote. (As evidenced by the fact that it's been almost six years since they made the FWRR coaches.)
The other reason to not delay is that is if we don't meet Accucraft's minimum order quantities, then they won't build these products.
Are you feeling lighter, now?
