locked Re: New E8s coming


I do have a buddy at the BRHS that is in contact with them about the issues with the Q ones. When the SW1200’s came out and were not correct for the Q, they took care of it and fixed the errors before production.

I don’t know if SRHA has anyone that would want to send these concerns, but it would probably be a good idea to have them send a email .

Very nice for the HO folks.  Good on them for having the right fuel tank arrangement.

I'm not an expert, but if the artwork is representative of the final product, not only is that check letter the wrong size, I think they're a few other issues, primarily on the roof:
1. Missing the 48" fan in the center of the roof.
2. Missing the firecracker antenna
3. The steam generator equipment looks to be in the wrong location and should possibly be double what is shown.
4. The horn should be M5R24 instead of all-forward facing.
5. From what I've seen in photos, the rooftop airtank piping is off.
6. I think I see the levers for the winterization hatches on the roof in the rear.  I never saw those in photos either.

I have no skin in the game, but maybe someone who is close to their design team should maybe let them know and double check their detailing.
