For those looking for 8600 coaches, that Rapido produced a couple years ago, a dealer (who attends our Spring Show and Open House at the South Shore Model Railway Club) told me that he has 150 of 'em sitting on his shelves!  So, please contact him, if you're interested; they are sold out at most dealers.  His contacts are:

lennyvatspco@yahoo.com

Good luck!

Dave, I do not model in HO but I had to ask this question. Do you know what scheme(s)? I figure that it would cut down on the number of phone calls and emails.
 I guess us "O" Scalers  think big. LOL!

Bill, these were the HO models that Rapido brought out a couple years ago; I believe I stated that.

Dave, I believe that Bill is trying to determine for the modelers in HO, what styles that are available in the group of 150 cars such as green stripe or red stripe, full or partial skirt.

Well, you know he wouldn't have any skirted McGinnis, since that was our exclusive.  So, he has the other two versions

Hi Dave,

Many thanks for posting the info. My Mom's health began to really deteriorate in 2014 and she passed in early 2017 so I was preoccupied with family matters, missing both the coaches and the FL-9s.  While the FL-9s were easy to pick up, this is the first source for coaches I've heard about. Email sent.

Regards,
Peter

I have tried to contact Lenny at the email provided but have not received a response. Is there another email that I can use to contact Lenny about the 8600 coaches?

Jim.

Sorry, Jim, that's the one he gave me at our show.  Maybe he's at another show, so I'd be patient and maybe wait another week and then send another email, if you still haven't heard.

Hey Dave,
Cars arrived today.  Many thanks for the connection to Lenny. Jim, have patience.  I wrote to Lenny the same day I posted to this thread and it was a couple days later before he replied - he also has a day job to tend to. Cars arrived today, so about 2 weeks turnaround.  Good enough for me!
Regards,
Peter
