Photos of Shira Trains New CPR D-10

Earlier I wrote about plans by Shira Trains to bring out a CPR D-10.

Some people wondered: Was this for real?

Photos of the first model of the locomotive were posted recently on the Shira Trains Facebook page recently. Find some of them here.

According to spokesperson Stanley Butler, the models are expected to arrive in September.

So while I've never met Butler, or his two silent partners, the photos indicate something is happening. The proof will be in delivered product. 

Since I don’t model the steam era, I won’t find out first-hand.

We'll look forward to September to see what happens.

But so far, so good.
