I sent an email out to BLI asking what the status was on if they were ever going to rerelease the long awaited PRR K4.

I also asked about if they are considering doing the Streamlined ones to.

This was the Response I got

"I agree with everything you said. Our next run of the K4 with current
tooling will be later this year. We hope to model the streamlined version
in 2013.

Sincerely,

Yes!!! Finally! One of the most famous locomotives will be reborn in HO scale!

I will probobly order all of the variations of the Streamlined ones!!!
And also some normal K4s.

Expect them 2013!

Any idea as to how much the BLI K4s will be?

I am interested in the BLI Paragon2 PRR NW2 and SW7, any feedback on those.

The K4 will cost about 350 dollars for the normal one, and about 400 for the streamlined one.
The PRR NW2 and SW7 will be out about May 2012

Thanks, is there an estimated delivery date for the K4? I think that the K4 will be my first steamer.

Also, are the PRR NW2 and SW7 the second runs of this model. In the case of BLI products, do you believe that the second runs of these models will be an improvement over the first.

There might be a small improvement in electronics but not much. The locomotives have been the same throughout BLIs history. They made these a few years ago to.

The K4 should be out early 2013. I would say from january-april

A heads up to all you PRR fans, seems that BLI has announced Tsunami equipped PRR K4s with an msrp of $499 and a winter 2012 delivery date.

LHS is offering a 20% discount, Factory Direct Trains is advertising $399, but can BLI deliver in 2012, 13, 14.
