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 look forward to continuing to buy trains from my favorite special run train maker. That’s how I think of you now, “The Train Maker”.  And speaking of cool trains, I just received a box loaded with great looking Texas Special cars. Thanks.  I certainly look forward to all the new releases you are planning.

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.

Ferdinand Magellan is great! This really fits your mission of offering significant cars that otherwise wouldn’t be produced.

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

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

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

What a trip! We had a great time- exceeded our expectations by a mile. The Silver Lariat was simply stunning. A gem on the rails. The scenery and weather were perfect. The delays were not an issue for us at all. All just a good days work on the railroad! Thank you for all the…
