Friends,

For the past few weeks, I've been dealing with a family crisis that has gone from bad, to good, and finally to worse. Because of this, I haven't been able to focus on the updates usually posted each Friday, but I should be able to get back on schedule next week. My apologies for any inconvenience.

Marc

Mark. Hope all is going well for you. We've seen no comments for a month now. Can you update your status for us?  Thanks. Prayers with you.

Thank you for your prayers.

 

Update will be no more than putting a full build together. However, I do have some exciting news for those eager for some activities and rolling stock. Diesels West has agreed to put a few locomotive and activity packs together for SH. Scott is still determining what all is to be included, but below is a pic he sent a few days ago of what he's come up with...

Scott also informed me that activities are already underway (locals and log hauls) that include some brand new autorack models and possibly some other goodies...

According to Scott, the above rolling stock is intended for Open Rails, as this allows Scott to exploit the many features of that program. I'll have more information on the packs and their contents soon. :)

 

Cheers!

Marc

Mark,

 

Thank you for the update.

 

Am I correct in assuming that these will be an additional purchase for the route?

Yes, these will be separate purchases through Scott's site at Dieselswest. :)

Is this DW set going to be available for purchase by the general public, or does one have to be a member of the apparently invitation only site?  I'll likely buy if they're publicly available, but I will not ask any business for permission to give them my money...

I'm not sure what you're getting at - the packs will be sold on the Diesels West website just as Scott's other items. :)

 

Cheers!

Which DW site will they be available for purchase on?  The old website, "dieselswest.com", or the invitation only "dieselswest.com/members/index.php"?
