Ouch, but I'll probably have to spring for a couple. I just LOVE that unit and the NW makes an appearance on my layout. I'll obviously go to a deep discounter to get mine though. ;>

I will, through a deep discounter. Why pay more when I don't have to? I can get it right after release and at a price much lower than retail. If I don't have to pay retail I'm not going to.

Yes, it is. You have cash to waste, pay full price.

Face it, very few have cash "to waste"...

Perhaps because he is so frugal, and has been in the past, he has the cash to buy them... And why just settle for two of them when you could find three for the same amount someplace else?

Looks like some gaps in the stock numbers, am guessing that the non-sound units will appear soon.

While they are at it, how about another run that includes SOO and MILW units, these were all gone fairly quickly from the first run.

I will go for a pair of the Southern units if offered in non-sound.

I had a feeling this might happen.

At least I have the domain gp30.com!

I have a feeling they might even get the details right. These units are very well photographed, the N&W are all one phase with only minor alterations (winterized windows, horn moved) over the life.

They could very well beat out the existing nominees for the best N&W diesel ever done in plastic - out of the box. Which is pretty much a toss-up between the Atlas GP40, and the SD35 in 13dip black (not the hamburger).

Subsequent 're-runS will cost more.

Every Chinese worker will want more money for the same amount of work.
The American Dollar contiues to drop.
Every new issue will offer 'improvrments'- LED headlights for example.
Increased cost of fuel affects everything, incliding your commute.
Ditributor ownership will shore up their customer base - Dealer margins.
More States will impose sales taxes on mail order.
