  I would say that such items with Bowser and Rapido are not out of the rhelm of possiblity.  Both companies are very willing to work with the society. Rapido does not require a minimum order for an item. Bowser does however and a good deal of interest would have to be expressed before proceeding.  Thanks Ed!

Are model railroad item pre-orders through the Society from Bowser, Rapido, and others limited to only N&W models?  What if a person wanted to pre-order models through the Society for say the Southern Railway?  What about merger partners like NKP or Wabash?  or Dereco partners D&H and EL?

Update on Bowser
Locomotive Delivery Schedule

We spoke with Gerry Seleck at Bowser today concerning the expected delivery of locomotives. He assured us Bowser
 definitely plans to produce everything they've previously announced. 
They are still in the process of finding manufacturing facilities for 
several of their projects. That being said, it will probably be the middle of 2019 or later before customers can really expect to see their locos start coming in. They ask for your patience and understanding. 

 as well as the other manufacturers that were affected by the unexpected
 China factory closure this summer, need your pre-orders to help them 
stay in business. We thank you as well for being patient. So, keep those
 Bowser orders coming! If you order it, they will make it!

Again, we appreciate your business. If you have any questions please contact us at your convenience.
