Amazing limited production model trains.

2020 is an Exciting New Year

You are probably saying this too, ‘Time is sure going fast.’

So much happened last year, and there’s so much to reflect upon. On a connected note, thank you with your well wishes, and similar stories, responding to my last blog ‘Thankful’ (about Prostate Cancer). I am surrounded by friends and that is the’ best’ we can hope for.

This coming year will certainly be better than last year.  I will ship the last car for the American Freedom Train!  I am so excited to finally get this out-the-door. This car has an amazing story of its own and the result is a beautiful baggage dorm car.  Those of you that have been waiting have been more than patient, and I thank you for that.

We have several projects that you will be just delighted about, and I’ll be telling you about them soon. In fact, you are about to be amazed!

For now, I am very pleased to tell you about the new baggage car that we just announced. It seems that Walthers only ran this body style  ONE time when they owned it. It is so close to the D&RGW car, well it just had to be done!  Fluted below the belt rail, and with full skirts, this car will be a welcome addition to N Scale. It was like a treasure discovery when I realized what I had. 

Very exciting year ahead!

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…

Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to.
