Ian I'm a bit confused about payment. How do we make the $20/car deposit? Where do we do that on their site? Or do we email them?

Have been 'off' for a couple of weeks, so lots of catching up to do;-

first up - latest update from Leadville

>> the etchings were redrawn and sent out for processing a couple weeks back. I am expecting the sheets in house in about 3 weeks. When they are in, I will revise the 3D prints for the frames, reprint the decals and then reach out to you with an update. <<

To me, without asking, this sounds as if it will before Christmas.

Ian, when they redraw the frame, are they going to adapt it suit your bogies?

Didn't think of that one.
Not sure what he means by revise the frame so will check.

Would be ideal if we can get it set up correctly for the bogies/trucks and couplers.

One question - for all of you - If possible do you want it set up the European standard wheelsets or the finer flanged US RP-25 wheelsets that I normally use?
OK 2nd question - what couplers - 715's, 1023/25, ???

Will check with Leadville and see just what he means. I can send the bogies, couplers, piece of track and height gauge so everything should be
perfect, if that's what he wants.

Hi Ian, i prefer Kadee #713 or #714 couplers and Modmüller RP25 7mm wheelsets. For the coupler height i use the NMRA standard.

I prefer MTL #1015. He should put the smaller hole and everyone is happy. I think we Germans are self-sufficient when it comes to buying wheel sets. But I also use the RP25.
