Production Schedule Announcement. 

Bluford Shops has also been affected by the closure of a leading rolling stock factory in late July. We are working on setting up production at our new factory but this will take some time so previously projected delivery dates are now “To Be Determined.”  We will hold on to pre-orders already placed and will confirm them with our dealer and distributor network when production is ready to resume. We have had some good progress behind-the-scenes in the last month so stay tuned. Your understanding is appreciated.


Because of the delay, we are able to re-open the pre-order period for all of the runs below. We may shuffle the release order to make the most of the equipment as it becomes available to use.
