Update from The Coach Yard - Re: the PULLMAN Co. Restaurant cars - NOTE: Many cancellations - see below:
The Pullman restaurant car project contains 6 types of cars with 43 variations that are unique to the railroads that used the cars.
The project is probably the most difficult project we (TCY) have done because of the ambiguities, the complexity, the exterior paintwork, and the Tail Signs.  The quantities per model will be as small as 4 units, making most models close to “one of a kind” items.
Given this complexity and the wide variances in reservations the following cars are going to be eliminated from production:
TCY 1460e – NYC YONDOTEGA CLUB, assigned to “The WOLVERINE” in Pullman Green (PG)
TCY 1463a – SRR LAFONTAINE CLUB/MOON BROOK CLUB, assigned “The TENNESSEAN”-PG
TCY 1463e – B&O DUQUESNE CLUB, assigned “Metropolitan Spl, in Blue/Gray
TCY 1463f – NYC "MAKETEWAH COUNTRY CLUB" / "SCIOTO COUNTRY CLUB", assigned Chicagoan/Mohawk/Water Level Limited, in NYC “revered TTGray
TCY 1463j-Pull” "CIRCUMNAVIGATORS CLUB", assigned PULLMAN Pool service, in PG
TCY 1463K – NKP "CARLETON CLUB", assigned Nickel Plate Limited”, in PG
TCY1464a – CGW "ROCHESTER CLUB", assigned “Minnesotan” , in Red w/Gold Stripe
TCY 1464b – SRR "ASHLAND COUNTRY CLUB", assigned Train #41 and #42 , in SRR Green
TCY 1464c – SRR "PEPPER PIKE COUNTRY CLUB", assigned PULLMAN Pool service, in PG
TCY 1465b – ERIE "WINDSOR BEACH", assigned “The ERIE LIMITED”, in PG
TCY 1465c – NYC “"INTERLACHEN CLUB" / "WINDSOR PARK”, assigned “Iroquois In PG
TCY 1465d – NYC "WINDSOR FOREST", assigned “Niagara” in NYC “revered TTGray
If you are willing to place an order for one of these cars, we can see of they can remain in the project..  The cutoff for final notice on these will be November 25th, 2022
Also, per TCY, expected pricing will be an msrp of $1495.00 due to the extremely small units produced, so expect reserve prices over $1,200
