Jason Shron – More Info

We have received more information from Jason about his planned cross-Canada tour.

We will have plated, pre-production samples of all seven car styles of The Canadian ready later this spring, along with the CP FP9 and hopefully the F9B.

I will personally be taking these pre-production samples of The Canadian on a cross-Canada tour (by train, of course!) from Halifax to Vancouver in June 2011. Only after everyone has seen the actual model will we close the order desk for The Canadian and take deposits from dealers.

At this time we are about 60% sold out of our 2000-train run. I expect we will still have availability following the tour, so dealers and modellers alike will have the chance to see the model in person before finalizing their orders. A delivery date of late 2011 is a real possibility for the only true model of The Canadian ever produced. After three years of hard work, it’s finally coming together.
