Amazing limited production model trains.

Breaking News: China Factory Closes

By now, many of you have heard about a major model train manufacturer suddenly shutting down in China. This news is only days old, so the situation remains pretty fluid.  Many companies here in the US used this factory. 

The RailSmith product will not be effected.  Our trains made here in the US at Micro-Trians will not be effected.
 
The product we have reservations with at InterMountain Railway Company, are the only releases for us that are effected.  We are determining the best course-of-action with those items. It will take a little time, and if you have OCS Dome or F units, or NP F units reserved, I will be reaching out to you directly by email or snail mail. Thank you for your understanding since this was completely unexpected.
 
There are representatives going to China to resource new factories and move production. It will take time. There is good news, in that some product is actually made in Colorado at IMRC, so all is not lost for them.
This will be more then a ‘bump in the road’ for the N Scale supply chain, but we may be better down-the-road after the dust settles. Many lives (and companies) are effected by this and the hardship is real. But we are family. And families encourage one another in the tough times.
 
As information comes available we will update the website. Thank you for your continued support of us and all of the N Scale manufactures that are affected.
 
Best Regards,
Lowell

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.

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

You are in my book one of the very best.

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

These are indeed miniature masterpieces.

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.

I am speechless!  The AFT Showcase car is everything I hoped it would be; and more.

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…
