Amazing limited production model trains.

Meet Dale: 30-Year National Park Ranger Retiree

As I am thinking about what National Park to do next in the National Park Series, I have to tell you a story that is fresh on my mind.

A couple months back, I received a call from a customer who asked if he could pay for expedited shipping of his order and explained it was a retirement gift. Of course I said ‘yes’ and as I looked at his order I noticed it was from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park Headquarters in Gatlinburg, TN! It seems that Dale had a retirement ceremony scheduled soon.

As it turns out, Dale loves trains, and my National Park Centennial Tour train set was just the gift for Dale! I gave them a deal on his shipping if I would allow me to use photos of the retirement to share here with you.  After 30 years of service a National Park Ranger retired, and it was special for me that they thought of my train as the desired gift for Dale!

Thanks Dale for your 30 years of service to our National Parks.

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.

Just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to be with you and the many other happy folks who experienced the Feather River Canyon trip.  I know you put a lot of work into making this special trip a reality and it all came together extremely well!

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…

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.
