Thrall 54' Coil Car Update
This Monday, DHL delivered a box of goodies to our door. Thirty seconds later, Schon (shipper extraordinaire) transported this box from the receiving area, between the stacks of centerbeams, through the N scale product shelving, past the shipping desk, into a door marked EMPLOYEES ONLY, walked about 30 feet and handed the box to me. I gave an enthusiastic Ooooooh and then placed the box onto the floor and went back to work on other things that needed to be done. Sometimes opening goodie boxes have to wait a little longer. A few hours later I opened the box with my trusty orange handled boxcutter that has been in my possession for about 15 years. This boxcutter was passed down by a former coworker of mine named Mark. This was before I worked at ExactRail and...
Maybe I should just stop and get to the point? But first here is a photo of my boxcutter:
Isn’t it great!
Inside the box were production samples of the long delayed second run of the Thrall 54’ CoilShield & Protector Coil Cars. These are now in the final assembly stage of life and should be on the water in about two to three weeks. As long as they get here at a reasonable pace and don’t get stuck for three weeks at customs like the centerbeams did, we should be looking at a November release.
Hooray for everything!
