RailSmith Samples Arrive!

What an amazing delight to get an email in the morning from the factory that RailSmith samples will arrive on that same day! I am delighted, and I know you will be as well, with these beauties! Delivery appears to be on time and planned for a December arrival. I will post here on the website, as well as my Facebook page, when they have shipped. I hope that by Trainfest, the second batch of samples will arrive. This will include the ACL, GN, NS (OCS) and Texas Special cars.

Speaking of the Texas Special, your enthusiasm, response and support for these trains has been overwhelming! I will confidently say that the third RailSmith release will include coaches of the Texas Special and I expect to announce the rest of release number three sometime in January. You Texas Special fans will be thrilled when you hear what is after that!

This is a good example of how I expect to respond to such positive feedback and support for any particular name train or railroad. Photos of the new cars are posting now over the next week. This will be coming soon for your railroad so don’t be left out of this first production run!

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…

Blunt End Observation is a GRAND SLAM! I’ve wanted this car for ages but never figured out a good way to kitbash it.

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…
