To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!

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…

That car is about the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in N scale!  Excellent work!

The thing I love about all the things you do is the fact that everything is so well thought out, so beautiful and so unique.

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.

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 got my new Santa Fe business cars, they are superb and worth the wait ten times over.

I received my observation/business car today and – like all of my other cars from you – I love it!
