    Checked out the new “face of Lowell Smith.com”. Looks pretty good, Lowell. Looking forward to seeing more. See you on Saturday at D23.

    Love the two heavyweight SP&S passenger cars (business and baggage).
    I am hoping you continue this line with more SP&S heavyweights as the body styles become available!

    The new website is terrific, a big improvement over the old one. It is much easier to navigate and find products.

    Cheers, and keep up the excellent work on your fine products!

    Hi, Lowell, I just stumbled on your new site; looks nice. I typed in SP&S in the search box and came up with “no results.” Typed in “N scale” and it showed only the last four you came out with. What am I doing wrong?

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…

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. Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest
