True line trains paint,building model railroad layout,soundtraxx tsunami decoder reset - Tips For You

Pointe St Charles CabooseSo the Year of the Monkey officially started February 8th (Happy New Year!).
Really!?!?!Yes, we just found out that the run of 1937 AAR Box Cars that just shipped from the factory were assembled WITHOUT COUPLERS!?!?!The joys of being a manufacturer.So if these were our old couplers, you probably would have removed them anyway, and replaced them with Kadee's. These are the first locomotives that TrueLine Trains has designed specifically for the US Market. True Line Trains HO 500216 Metrolink MP36PH-3C engine already assembled is based on the ones built in 2008-2009. While the factory had given us assurances that the PSC Cabooses would ship before the Chinese New Year, once we (and you) had a chance to take a closer look at the pre-production model that we received, there were a few things that we just weren't happy with.For example, the lettering on the sample was not right, it was missing white handrails and the side sill was not painted black.
As there has been a lot of discussion about us and our models (generally a good thing), and folks have questions, I'll cover as much as I can here (again).
Each True Line Trains Gold SERIES locomotive comes with our Tru-Mate Couplers, 8 wheel drive and 8 wheel electrical pick up, ultra under body detail for a Diesel Commuter, hand applied detail parts.
Rather than using a separate diesel engine to provide Head End Power for the passenger cars, it uses a series of static invertors  which reduces the amount of power available to move the train.
It appears that the shipment to the NYC Historical Society was opened en route (customs?), it arrived resealed with duct tape.
All of these are relatively easy to fix, but these fixes alone impact 7 different schemes, if I recall.In addition, since we only received one sample, we are requesting that they don't run any other scheme until we can at least have photos of a sample shell. Ideally we'll get physical samples, but that would also delay things a bit more.It will be a couple of weeks due to the Chinese Holiday before we have an update. Due to the last few years being extremely tough for us, we're having to do some of the work ourselves. The C-Liners are getting ever closer to shipment, and then we'll see what's next.Yes, the PSC caboose is coming. Utilizing much of what was learned in the prior model ("Erie Builts"), they continued to use their opposed piston prime movers developed over years of providing power for US Naval vessels.The new "Consolidated Line" (known as 'C-Liners) were available in several variations. Dealing with those now.Klasing HandbrakesWorking on fitting a run into the production schedule ASAP. We know you've waited a long time for these, but we think that you'd rather wait just a little while longer so we can make sure they are correct.Klasing HandbrakesYes, it's true. The classification system indicates the intended use, A- or B- unit, horsepower, and number of axles.
He has the locomotives up north and is installing decoders and couplers, then testing each one before shipping out to dealers. Due to the process of getting these produced we may not be able to do another run in the near future, and almost half of this run is already sold.


So they are getting out there a little at a time.PSC cabooses are in production and should ship very soon.
So order now!Warranty, non-warranty, parts requestsI have a huge backlog (due in part to a technical error on my part). We'll let you know when they are back in stock.Next ModelsThe SW1200RS and wood and transfer cabooses are still on track.
The plan is for the factory to ship to us before the Chinese New Year (starts Feb 8th if I recall, although production might continue a bit longer). We (and others) have noticed some minor issues, so we're working on correcting what we can. Because of the long delays, as well as issues with some of the prior models, cash-flow becomes an issue.
In this arrangement, when providing HEP, the full 3600 HP from the prime mover is available for traction, and the prime mover is allowed to idle at a lower RPM. We've been very happy with the results we've been getting (some delays are still inevitable). If you hop off to some other site or forum to complain about it there, we might not know about it. There are a lot of dates that I've seen posted on the net, from 'they have already shipped' to the 4th, 7th, 8th, and I've probably seen more. There's money tied up in all of the projects, along with daily business expenses, with income far in the future. So it takes a lot of time, money, and effort to get things moving at a fair pace again.
SunRail's version will differ from the norm as in addition to being refurbished, it will have a switcher-like body unlike the fully enclosed body standard to the MPXpress locomotives.
We collaborate with great folks that are among the most knowledgeable in the hobby, but that doesn't mean that we (or they) know everything.
New photos, original plans, or new photos that prove the original plans are wrong, crop up again and again.
Your dealer may charge less (or more?), but that's our SRP.For the last several years, we've been challenged by a lot of business and personal issues. The system operates in Los Angeles County, San Diego County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County and Ventura County. It connects with the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system, the San Diego Coaster and Sprinter commuter rail services, and with Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner, Coast Starlight, Southwest Chief and Sunset Limited intercity rail services.
The system, founded in 1991 as the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) and quickly adopting "Metrolink" as the marketing and user friendly moniker, started operation in 1992. So Darren and I are both working multiple jobs, just for the privilege of making models for you.


Don't know.We've talked about, written about, and published this answer in many places, and in many different ways.
I'm usually a moderately disorganized procrastinator, so squeezing everything into a day can be a challenge.This weekend reminded both Darren and I why we keep doing this. It has been quite a while (two years?) since we've been able to actually get together in the same room.
That also makes it difficult to do what we do, but we do the best we can.This year is starting strong, and if our factories continue to deliver it should be a very good year for us. In addition to the things on deck, we have a number of new announcements we'd like to make, but it's a bit too early for that.Right now we can say that after the PSC cabooses, we should be seeing the Canadian wood and transfer cabooses (including the GTW one) following shortly behind. It's an aggressive schedule, and we're looking at possibly working with another factory to make it work.I wouldn't expect any other announcements until later in the year. Those projects alone will take us through most of 2016.What you will not see us doing is providing specific dates. While things have improved immensely, delivery dates are still too fluid to say anything specific until it actually happens.
We don't mind sharing what we do know, but most of the time it's very tentative and we're a bit wary (from past experience) to be specific when we're not confident that we'll meet a given date.You now know what's in the immediate production queue. But that's our current goal.Something I have heard from a number of people, and not just about our models, is that they are waiting to place an order until after they can see if a particular error is corrected. Really.While we (I) have not been making regular updates, I always try to answer emails, even if it takes me a while. I don't presume to think that my way is the right way for everybody, but when it comes to producing models being a 'rivet counter' helps.
A lot.Another thing that is really important to understand is that we're not in this alone.
While I'm sure it's not always obvious online, anybody who comes to see us at the show will tell you that we're here for you and because of you. We consult with a lot of experts in their fields, but we are also always interested in honest, but civil, feedback from you. Despite that, commentary along the lines that we're disappearing or closing is inaccurate and unhelpful. We've had more than enough reason and opportunity to close up shop over the last several years.
