What They Say:

Jeff B.

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

D.K.

Every new release from your Signature Series gets me revved up for the rails.

Nothing better than receiving that white box from Lowell Smith.

Dan D.

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.

Lowell, I received my Great Locomotive Chase set today. “THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.” Keep up the good work.

Paul G.

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.

P.B.

Thanks for all the great trains – it’s nice to have such wonderful rolling stock on the layout.

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.
