  1. Man this is fantastic news! Do the matching cars need to be preordered as well or will they for sure be produced and available when released? Any chance they will release any solid black unlettered gs4's?
  2. I haven't posted in a bit but I'm still holding out hope for new steam to come along. Make the 611 or atleast bring back the Hudson and gs 4/2's. The 1225 pere Marquette would be awesome as well.
  3. Congrats on the new engine. It looks and sounds great. Great to see these still being able to be found in good working order. Still holding out hope of finding myself one. Any idea what your planning on pulling?
  4. This is it huh? Man I really thought they were gonna bring back more than just the big boy. Maybe even do the 611. Any chance of a fall catalog?
  5. Really looking forward to see what will be offered, and how soon they will be able to have the product available.
  6. That is most definitely some kind of special. lol
  7. A few months back i was searching for anybody who might still have engines in stock and there was a store in tx who claimed to have a new one. I was quoted 1100 for it which now seems like a bargain if it is sealed in box like they said. I am sure there are still some out there in little shops just waiting to be bought but it most definitely is a treasure hunt. Sure would be nice if some Daylights would pop up.
  8. When the 2015 catalog is released can we expect not to see any physical product until 2017? Or will things hopefully speed up?
  9. Heres a look at their new catalogs. The first one is 5 mb and second is 170 mb http://www.piko.de/KAT_PDF/99715_G_Neuheiten_2015.pdf http://www.piko.de/KAT_PDF/99705_G_Katalog_2015.pdf Interesting that they added photo steps on how to put in decoders and sound. That is pretty helpful for beginners. The electric couplers are an interesting idea as well.

  15. Fantastic work! The 3d printing aspect to this hobby is of great interest. I can only assume it will become a huge part of the hobby in the future and I look forward to seeing more of your ideas and projects.
