New Accurail Kit on Horizion

Wonder what the next Accurail Kit will be?

Reminds me of Irvine Athearn's, annual suprise to look forward to...

Accurails CF4750 covered hopper was pretty long in the works.  If they haven't announced another "all new" model, then patience is the by-word, unless they have decided to secretly work on a new model and wait until later in the development phase to announce.

I checked Accurails website and nothing regarding any all-new models.  If you are interested in new runs of existing models, go here:

http://www.accurail.com/accurail/new.htm

Until/unless there is an annoucement, it may be quite some time (years) until we see any newly tooled models, assuming the go that route again.  I was quite surprised when the CF4750 was announced as it was the first new model by them in a very very long time.  By that measure, don't get your hopes up.

However, if Accurail offers a correct model that fits late 1970's, and matches a real freight car, I'll be interested.  The CF 4750 covered hopper turned out pretty nice.

Have they got all the 36' boxcars out yet?  I think some are still "coming soon."

Accurail has released a few 36' 1300- & 1700-series double-sheath boxcars but there are still more on the way.  They don't release them quickly so it's kinda fun to check the Accurail website periodically to see if another one has been released.

The "buy now" button appeared on the 1400 and 1800 series undecs with the blue on the first two decorateds, usually you can get those in a couple of weeks.  Still says coming soon though.

Rule 108: In case of doubt or uncertainty, the safe course must be taken.
