Silver Smith Tour 2013 recap

A trip of a lifetime is one way to describe our Silver Smith Tour of 2013. Our private rail cars traveled on the California Zephyr, The Empire Builder, and The Coast Starlight circling our wonderful country through the Rockies, the plains, the Cascades and back home. The Silver Lariat (The Silver Smith) dome car, The Palm Leaf, and the Silver Rapids made seeing the USA a spectacular adventure, since trains can go where cars cannot.
 
Chartering these particular rail cars added a touch of comfort that was reminiscent of wonderful days gone by.  All that was on the agenda was enjoying the view from the dome, chatting with our friends, and being pampered by our own chef and crew, who served food beyond compare and served us in whatever ways they could.
 
We are planning our next trip!  Watch for more information here.  – Barb

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.

Keep up setting the bar high and providing a product that exceeds expectations.

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.

Lowell, thanks to you and your company SP&S modelers (myself included) are having a much easier time modeling the North Bank Road. Thank you for your hard work!

I just received my Carolwood Pacific cars yesterday. They are exquisite! Every attention to detail was paid here, and I can’t thank you enough for putting this into production.  They are going to look amazing, circling my main Street miniatures display.
