Fox Valley Models sent out Part 2 of their February announcements and shipping updates today. First is a new variation on the ES44AC GEVO’s which includes a high rear headlight along with a 4 window cab to match UP’s most recent orders. Alongside the standard Union Pacific “Building America” flag scheme is the special pink ribbon Susan G Komen unit. CSX and Ferrosur (merged with Ferromex) round out the release.
A special FMC 5347 boxcar in United States Army yellow and red is also being released in 4 numbers. Reservations are requested by March 1, 2013.
FVM has also released part numbers for the Norfolk Southern Heritage Series SD70ACe’s which were previewed at the Springfield, MA show last month. Besides the retro-heritage schemes, these will also be offered in standard NS and the special 30th Anniversary unit. These units will be on the street beginning late summer 2013.
Matt also provided a shipping update for the GEVO heritage units (post-Chinease New Year… Shipping April-June in the order the prototypes were released) and the ATSF GP60 M&B units (June/July 2013).
