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

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