Holiday Boxcar Signing with Lowell Smith

Save the Date!

On Saturday November 30th, 2013 Barb and I will be in San Francisco at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  This will be a fun event where I release and unveil, for the first time, the 2013 Christmas car.

This years car as in the past, will be very special and is really the best one yet!  I hope you can make it there, but if not, I will post an image of this years car on Facebook and my web site that same weekend.

Here is the cool link to the Walt Disney Family Museum calendar:

And, here is the write-up from the event posting at

“Celebrate the grand reveal of our Bambi-themed 2013 Holiday Boxcar, designed exclusively for the museum by specialty train producer, Lowell Smith. Join us for a signing with the artist, known for his highly prized colorful train creations, including other Museum Store gems including the Carolwood Pacific Boxcar, Gondola, Lilly Belle Engine and 2010, 2011, and 2012 Holiday Boxcars. – See more at:”

Hope to see you there and/or will watch for your comments online!

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!


You know I’m always looking forward to the next release and its arrival with great anticipation. I treasure my Lowell Smith Signature collection.


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 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…
