The 60172 Digital Booster was introduced in 2005 to replace the 6017 Digital Booster. Märklin promised us in early 2007 that the 60172 "would finally be delivered during in 2007". It never appeared. We have been told that the Märklin factory production schedule doesn't include the 60172 during 2008! They will, however, produce some 6017's this Summer. We have ordered some for stock and have also begun another production run of our own MO-625 100va Digital Boosters and our matching MO-630 130va Transformers to help fill in while we wait another year.
For those customers waiting for their Preordered/backordered M60172's, we can offer a $25.00 credit towards either the M6017 Digital Booster or $50.00 credit towards our own MO-625 Booster/MO-630 Transformer Combo when they cancel their order for the M60172 until June 1st, 2008. We just don't know how much longer we'll be waiting for the elusive M60172's.
Extra MO-625's and MO-630's will then be sold to any other customers.
