I didn’t pre-pay for my Redbird, just wanted to reserve one while available.  Glad I did.

I know that in most cases pre-order does not mean pre-pay.  It depends upon where you pre-order.

I totally agree with you. I pre ordered two or the athearn redbirds. I so believe that every manufacture has the ability to produce a bad model. That is what we live with today. No more brick and mortar hobby shops where er can see the finished model. This is the internet  world, either good or bad.

I agree with Ed. I know that there are some people who do not like to preorder, but if you do not you could lose out.

I do not feel sorrow for those that do not preorder and miss out on a model. You snooze you lose. Why would a manufacture

Rerun a model because of the few that wanted one that missed out. The other phase Red bird yes. But will we have the some ones crying because they did not preorder – most likely!!! I have no sympathy for those who don’t.

I concur. Maybe a run of red and blue in both phases – especially red, since they only did the phase III(?) the last time.

Yes, the redbirds sold out very quickly and have been almost impossible to find since.  Hopefully this inspires Genesis to do another run.  I can't remember which, but they did one of two phases, so they can do another run with the other phase.

I was fortunate to find a dealer a couple years ago taking reservations for the Genesis GP9s in red and blue.  I ordered 1 of the redbirds with full dcc/sound.  Out of curiosity, I’ve occasionally looked on ebay for either engine to check availability (I’m not in the market for another nor plan to sell mine).  I’ve only seen 2 or 3 auctions for the blue scheme but none for the red.  Are these as “rare” as lack of auctions indicates?
