Amazing limited production model trains.

Arrivals Update: December 2018

RailSmith

It is very exciting to know that the first RailSmith shipment is ‘on the water’ as they say. I am delighted that the factory had the first run completed ‘on time’ in early November. The fact that it took me much longer than planned, or understood, to set up the paperwork to become an importer was a fact I did not consider. So, it’s my fault that the first batch will be here in January and not December. And, this is expected to delay the second shipment one month as well, but as always, I will keep you up-to-date on progress.

MicroTrains

  • While USA production should not be a challenge, quite simply it has been. But! The Great American Circus, American Fruit Packers and National Park Series are all shipping now. With these, I am always so excited to announce what is next in the series, so be sure to check them out!
  • It really is kind of ‘like Christmas’ with everything coming all at once! Pay careful attention to the Great American Circus #32 and get your orders in NOW because it will be shipping on time in April.

  • World of Color Set #3 and Pullman Park Series ‘Pennsy’ cars, are due in January.
  • The delays at Micro-Trains mean that many of these runs are just about sold out already. That said, it’s always good to get your orders placed right away to avoid the heart ache of forgetting, or worse, missing out!
Hold on, because it just keeps getting better!

Every aspect of the trip was professionally done.  You and Barbara were on top of every change and your matter-of-fact assurances speak highly of your professionalism.  Jo Ann is a retired chef  and we know what good food is, and the meals provided on the CZ trip were stellar! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

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

As a retired US Secret Service agent I have conducted security advances for the president and his family traveling by train. I have done a lot of research on the Ferdinand Magellan and the model has excellent detail. It will be an…
