    Why was this so tempting....?

    I twice walked away but it kept calling me back... I succumbed to it myself. Along with a few Central Jersey Piggybacks.

    Worth it? (Not by my usual standards...) I much prefer a bargain basement deal. I just don't see that happening with Trainworx very often.

    Default New Tractor Trailer Release from Trainworx

    Excited to see Trainworx's new tractor trailer! With their track record of attention to detail and quality, I'm sure this release will be a hit among model train enthusiasts. Can't wait to add it to my collection and see it rolling down the tracks.

    Where to people like to buy these from. My usual online hobby shop, hogtrains, did not carry the last release and modeltrainstuff.com is now dead. So looking for a new place to shop for these. I don't love doing pre-orders because I still have one with Trainworx for their caboose from perhaps 5 years ago?!

    Pat sent out an email on January 6, 2024 explaining how the "Limited and Available Now" products are distributed. The full content of Pat's email is shown below:


    N scale
    Allocation list


    I have had a lot of questions about our N scale allocation list for "LIMITED AVAILABLE NOW" product announcements and I will answer those questions here.
    Trainworx distributors and dealers are allocated a percentage of the run based on historical volumes and they are offered their allocation just prior to the announcement of the product. Only distributors and dealers with a recent purchasing history with Trainworx are offered an allocation, and they have to say YES if they want the allocation or NO if they don't by a specified date. If you are a dealer who buys your Trainworx items from a distributor then your history is with that distributor and you should understand their terms for these releases and deal with that distributor for Trainworx "LIMITED AVAILABLE NOW" items.

    Trainworx also has an allocation for the Trainworx store on the web site and this allocation usually goes very fast. Just because the product says sold out in the Tainworx store doesn't mean that it is sold out world wide. There is a large network of reputable Trainworx dealers with these products and the Trainworx store allocation is a small fraction of what is available.

    There are individuals on the allocation list for these "LIMITED AVAILABLE NOW" products and this is how you can be on the list.

    1. You have to have a purchase history with Trainworx.
    2. Email me and request to be on the list.
    The individual allocation of a particular item is always 1, never more. If you want more that 1 you will have to get any additional units from your preferred dealer. There is no discount, we will not undersell our dealers. You will be sent a PayPal Invoice and the announcement at about the same time, if you get one and not the other always email me right away to see why. There is no obligation to buy your allocation, and it is easy to be removed from the list, ask or refuse your allocation and I will remove you.

    Refused and unclaimed allocations will be redistributed and some will be added to the Trainworx store usually 4 or 5 days after the announcement. The time and date won't be announced but it won't be a secret either, please feel free to email for details on the time and date.
    I refer to email a lot because for the first 48 hours after an announcement it is too crazy to return calls and my other job keeps me away from the phone during the day, I can return emails at hours when it wouldn't be appropriate to call and the response will be quicker.


    Trainworx Values

    Modeler and collector focused. Our focus is on you and we pride ourselves on great customer service.
    Provide value in the items you purchase. We want to bring you products that you will enjoy and give you more than expected so that you feel they are worth your investment.
    Fair and honest. Every one has equal opportunity to get these models. We send our email news to everyone at the same time. You can choose to sign up for the email news letter, reserve on time, sign up for an allocation, buy when something is first released or have your favorite dealer stock our product and get their orders in on time. You can choose where you get your news, where to buy and when you want to buy. This is fair, it's your choice.


    Buyer beware:

    Trainworx chooses distributors and dealers that share our values and some of these dealers do sell online or on ebay. Trainworx dealers are easy to spot since they don't put items up for auction to the highest bidder and they don't inflate the price of the item or shipping. Trainworx does not tolerate dealers mistreating or taking advantage of customers. If you suspect that a Trainworx dealer is scalping please let me know and I will be quick to sever this relationship. If it turns out this dealer buys from a distributor then the distributors allocation will be reduced for future runs. If you see inflated pricing or auctions from an individual, (not a dealer), it is your choice if you want to buy or not. Know that it is common for something to say Trainworx but is not, or maybe only part of a package deal is Trainworx. Know what you are buying, and if you don't know ask.

    We appreciate all of you and value the relationships that we've built. It is truly our pleasure to bring you these models and we thank you for your continued support.



    Happy New Year
    At your service,
    Pat Sanders

    The only thing I ever pre-orderded was a Kato Big Boy from Lombard.
    Transaction was smooth and easy.
    I see they carry Trainworx trucks.
    Were I to pre-order one, I'd probably do it with them.

    Good luck
