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.

    Just discovered your add in RMC and typed in your web address and —- placed my first order! I am a GN modeler in O scale but my best friend talked me into building T-Trak modules and a whole new world of modeling the GN opened up! Thanks and I’m looking forward to more NP and GN cars! Thanks ~ Stephen

    I love the Disney cars you have done. I collect Christmas cars and have for nearly 40 years. I would love for you to do some Christmas cars, they seem to be more popular each year lately and sell out fast for most of the lines. While Ho was the scale of my childhood, I moved into N scale in the 1980s to reduce the size of my layout. I plan on building the layout of my dreams… a Christmas town in the mountains, when I retire.

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

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! BRAVO to you and Barbara for…

D.K.

Aside from the quality, creativity and originality, you are to be commended for your ongoing commitment to this (GAC) series, and all of your series of trains over a period of so many years.  There is always something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!’ D. K. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest

My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest

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

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. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest
