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!

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest

I am looking forward to many more releases in the new year. I stayed up really late on Christmas to talk to Santa when he came by our house. I asked him for an n-scale SP&S 700, and he said that was out of his league and I’d better call you. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest
