The truck sideframes certainly were released and I am sure some of the cars were as well. Not sure about the gondola though, this was from a while back and I am sure in those times I would have bought one if it was available

Richard is correct (as usual!). The automobiles were Fred's first release, and he brought out the truck sideframes out a bit later. It was to help out everyone building the SW1200 on the Tillig/BTTB switcher chassis originally, one version had the correct sideframes from the factory but several others didn't. It worked out well, because they were available when Possum Valley brought out their SW Chassis kit, they're actually a little long wheelbase wise but it's not really noticed.
The gondoal was close but his personal life hit a snag, I don't know if he's back into producing anything yet or not.

I e-mailed him about this very thing recently and never got a response. I asked Elmer McKay if he was still active with my last order and he said he had not heard from him in years. Tom Dempsey, Spokane, WA

I've contacted with Fred in December 2009 - January 2010 and got some automobiles.
