What People Are Saying:

George H.

"It's always a thrill when I get one of your packages. As usual I expected the diners to be great and they exceeded my expectations - fantastic models. And the F units went beyond that!"

Brian M.

"Wow, just wow! You have out done yourself. These Great Northern diners are spectacular!! You can quote me on that. …my Kato diner is being pulled from service! Thanks for all your had work."

Tony V.

"I recently asked a lifelong N-gauge modeler (an in-house expert working at my local train store) if he personally owned any RailSmith. He replied “No,” but added “…because it makes everything else on my layout look like crap.”"

Neal B.

"Thank you for providing the service that you do. You probably just think you’re running a business but you’re actually providing a service that’s overlooked by all the others.

Your company makes collecting model trains like a tiny journey into the past."

I have done a lot of research on the Ferdinand Magellan and the model has excellent detail."
