Amazing limited production model trains.

BMRE Activity Atlanta 2017

Anyone that knows me well, knows that my love for trains goes deep.  When it comes to railroad modeling, I specifically love operating a model railroad in some realistic fashion.  In the Northwest areas, we have many friends that share this same passion. 

Recently, one of these friends moved to Atlanta, Georgia.  Mark had moved several times around Seattle, but this last move took him to the deep south.  That move did not stop us, though, from ‘making the trip’ to help Mark, once again, set up his Feather River N Scale empire to see it run as it had before. 

The brotherhood loves to be with people that share our passions and in this case, the love of model trains.  In the deepest sense, it really becomes about those friends that you share the journey of life with.  I hope that you have railroad buddies on your journey!

Mark was quick to write about it in the recent N Scale Railroading issue in the ‘observations’ column on the last page of the May release.  It is fun to build, dream, and ‘just to be with’ long-time friends, and at the same time meet new friends with the same aspirations.  While in Atlanta with Mark, we visited Darryl Kruse, and his Union Pacific empire, that was featured in-and-on-the-cover of Model Railroader’s November 2008 issue.

Great times were had by all!

Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

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!

Lowell, I am very pleased with the N Scale Ferdinand Magellan Presidential car.
