    I’m excited! I got one of each. I honestly don’t need them, but the Cascadia will break up all the Peterbilts I have on the layout.

    Now when are those grain trailers coming...

    I can't remember if I ordered any Cascadia's or not. I don't have an email saved from LHS that I ordered them. Guess I'll find out soon enough

    Dont worry Vince they got you covered. Hopefully the stuff for the era you and I are modeling are on the next boat!

    Those Freightliners are looking really nice. Got the Freightliner feaver this morning!! Ill say it again, thanks to Trainworx I really feel N scalers have an advantage over HO when it comes to detailed trucks.
    Be positive, Be polite, have fun with the hobby!

    39.95 is the retail price. Didn't see any below that. But did find this one of another model....

    People are crazy, missing a mirror and still going to be north of $100

    Trainworx has not made a production run of unlettered Kenworth T800 day cabs with tandem rear axles. That T800 was built from parts, and without the Trainworx rear suspension or engine. (Trainworx has only released Kenworth T800 semi-tractors in FedEx and UPS paint schemes.)

    However, it is nice to know the one I built appears to be appreciating in value.

    Found out last time that the Trainworx trucks were released that pre-order guarantees nothing even months in advance.

    Darn, I preordered mine after preorders had ‘closed’ and I still got them. Maybe you should try another shop to preorder from next time.

    Well looks like I am getting at least some of my order from hogtrainz. Hot a shipping notification last night from them But this is after I heard from someone else that they had done a late pre-order and was not getting theirs, so I placed another order which arrives today from Lombard. Guess a few more truckers on my layout will be happy as they'll get upgraded from their 1980s Concor Freightshakers

    For those that misses the first wave, watch eBay. The resellers will be flooding it shortly.

    Hey if you are still interested in the trucks. Model train stuff has plenty of them in stock for $30 a pop
