Re: [HOn3] Blackstone K-28 & K-36
- When you have high quality,well engineered die cast/plastic coming
out of China as Blackstone has done it has taken control of the market
as far as operators choice,there will always be a collector market for
high quality hand made brass loco,it's just going to be a lot smaller
and that does effect the price. Smaller market,smaller demand,lower
price's paid for those items.

- I went to the Breckenridge art show this afternoon and saw a great new picture by Ken Smith. It is a nice shot in Durango, K-28 #478 on the turntable and the K 36 #480 on the TR lead in left front. Steam and full moon, too. Gorgeous! It will be on the wall at my house soon. <br/><br/>It's not on his website yet because he just got it printed on Thursday. But his web site is;<br/><br/>http://www.steamandmorephotography.com/<br/><br/>I have no financial connection beyond being a very satisfied customer. <br/><br/>Mike Conder, via iPhone, pardon the typos<br/><br/>

- Maybe. If the release is very early 2014, pre-production models may have already been delivered. If late 2014, then maybe not. Blackstone keeps this info close to their vest, so people won't overly-speculate then criticize if the delivery date doesn't make their perceived expectations.

I am sure they will look like this.
- As a size comparison, here's a photo I shot of K-27 463 and K-36 487 double heading near Lobato Trestle in August 1999. Most of you probably are aware of the size difference but I thought I'd post this photo, FWIW.
