Amazing limited production model trains.

Christmas Is Coming – and so are your trains…

Christmas is Coming!

And so are your trains!
Presently, there is one release arriving in November, three releases coming in December, with two more in January. That combined with the RailSmith cars arriving will prove to be a very busy winter, and Christmas season.
It’s never the plan to get it all at the same time, and this will surely put the crunch on Santa! But Barb and I appreciate your understanding, and patience, as we ‘ramp up’ production from Prineville, getting things back to the usual and more evenly spread out.
 
Walt Disney Family Museum – The Walt Disney Family Museum is such and amazing place to visit and to get inspired. Every year since one year after opening they have asked me to produce a special car celebrating the holiday season with Walt Disney’s wonderful family of characters. This year they made the decision to not have a train produced. It is unfortunate to break the continuity of the series, but it is not my decision. The current leadership says that “the option is open for the future”. 
 
On a much brighter note, the Carolwood Caboose is finally getting closer. We had hoped it would be ready and in place in time for Christmas, but that just cannot happen. I know you will be very happy with it when it is ready, and especially when you can finally get one!
 
World of Color set number three will be here in January and with it, the announcement of the much awaited number four! The fourth release in this series will be very special if you have seen the lineup.

I have never been treated as graciously and in a manner more suited to a VIP in my life, as I was on our train trip.  It’s obvious how you’ve made your life a success story.  Looking around the train and seeing your friends I’m pretty sure they  were all made to feel very special by you, and your…

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…

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. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest
