- Oct 12, 2009Doug:
From what Mark Mogensen (Pres of PSC) has told me personally the
project is definitely
not dead at this time.
Insofar as the two scales are concerned, the problems are not the
same. The smaller size
of the HO models is one of the key issues - and Mark told me that
extracting a die cast
frame from the dies is one big issue...at least with the HO version.
The O scale versions are, comparatively, much easier to do and Mark
seems set to do those
in brass, as he has stated recently.
I think we all need to indicate continued interest so that Mark knows
we are still here and
hoping for a model, regardless of the personal scale preference.
