    What is up with the Walthers New DCC 130' Turntable

    I just happened to notice that there is one on eBay that ships in 24 hours, so I checked an order I placed over a year ago if memory serves me right and itís still back ordered.

    Then I checked other venders supplies and everybody is sold out. What happened? Did I miss something and does anybody actually have one yet? I know it got postponed 2 or 3 times, but Iíve lost track of it. Actually I forgot about it until I saw it on eBay just now.

    Really, I wonder if I should cancel my order and buy the one on eBay. I was not sure if eBay was for real or not and I think my guy forgot about me.

    I purchased one from a non forum advertiser but they are out of stock now.
    The New York Burroughs works still shows in stock.
    Good luck.

    Mine was posted from Wig-Wag on 24/4/2012. It arrived about 2 weeks ago, which is pretty standard for the Great Southern Land.
    I ordered it as soon as Walthers announced it about 18 months ago. It wasn't even on Wig-Wag's announcements at the time.
    It is already out of stock at Walthers. Maybe you were unlucky and missed the first run from your pusher even tough you seem to have ordered early.
    There are still 2 listed at the big place in MD.

    Thanks, I don’t know how I missed it. I started out checking every day and then every month until I lost track. It must have been a short batch for them to be gone so fast. I hope there are more on the way. I’ve been busy, but I’m going to call tomorrow to see what is up with my order. I haven’t seen anybody posting about the 1st batch and I hope everything is well with the design this time around,

    They have been out for a couple weeks. After filling all initial back orders, Walthers had about 30 turntables left over which dissapeared in less than a day. The HO version was shorted and they came up around 150 turntables shy of filling all backorders. Because of that, they are planning for another run of the HO's in the future so maybe more N scale tables will be run at the same time.

    I've had my DCC version reserved with Pete in New Jersey since September and it arrived the weeks ago. Glad I did I guess if they are already sold out. Haven't yet had time to even unpack it and check it out....

    Well it sounds like if I haven’t got my order by now, it’s not coming. I just looked at the Walthers site and they have "unknown" for shipping, so I have no idea when that’s going to be.

    I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t been notified and now I don’t know what to do until I can talk to someone. I guess I should check to see if it was already charged to my credit card.

    Walthers has announced a new group of the N-Scale turntable will be coming at the same time as the additional release of HO turntables. We took Pre-Orders right up to the day before they shipped and filled every one.

    This is the only time we've ever had a sales rep from a distributor or manufacturer contact us and indicte that something is going quickly and it actually was.
