    Bluford Shops made a new tooling announcement at Trainfest:

    Along with a half-bay window version, phase 1, 2, 3, and 4 bay window cabooses.

    As they are still cutting the tooling, Bluford has indicated that their pre-order window will remain open until at least January 12, 2018.

    Aha - thank you! I never noticed that rule before...

    OK, is it acceptable to ask if any of the forum advertisers handle preorders? N is not my usual thing, so I don’t have dealers I work with.

    My suggestion would be to try TrainWorld/TrainLand, Top Hobby Trains and/or Fifer Hobby Supply.
    TrainWorld/TrainLand typically posts newly announced items to their site as "available for backorder" before they are released.
    Not sure how the other two might handle it.

    SP was probably one of if not the largest owner of bay window cabooses...
