Teaser: Preproduction ‘Tiger Stripe’ RS-3

It is just like Christmas when a production run arrives here!  The moment of opening the box, and gazing for the first time, a train that was probably thought of years before and took at least a year to produce. It is very exciting for me and I hope you feel the same way.  …

Fall Means Indoor Railroading for the Model Railroad Enthusiast

I really love the fall season.  Every year, as the days get colder, it is a reminder of the fun hobby of model railroading. And although it truly is not a seasonal hobby for me, it is the time of year the focus comes back indoors after the fun warm days of summer. Last night…

What They Say:

Paul G.

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.

S. Reames

I received my observation/business car today and – like all of my other cars from you – I love it!

J.Wallace

AFT is a real dream come true for me. Thanks for all your hard work!

S. S.

I got my new Santa Fe business cars, they are superb and worth the wait ten times over.

G.N.

As a retiree of the Walt Disney Company I look forward to upcoming releases of the Disney Family Museum and Disneyland series.  Keep up the excellent work!

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…

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.

J. Arenas

Wow… You made my dream come true with the CK Holiday! I am a great admirer of your work.

R. LeBrun

Thank you for all that you do for the N Scale community. Your products by far, in my opinion, are the top of the line when it comes to N Scale Trains and I am always on the lookout for them when they come up for auction.

Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.
