Stub switch on the The Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway, September 16, 2012
Ray Kaminski

Many thanks to everyone who showed up at the September, October and November shows.

A Little Longer: The Micro Engineering Co Ladder Track System in Code 70 has not yet arrived at the shop. Those who have placed preorders will have them shipped as soon as they arrive. Watch this homepage or our Facebook page for updates.

Higher Wattage Speakers: Remember that those purchasing the new higher amp sound / motor decoders (you know who you are) can blow out a speaker real quick if you’re not careful. Consider wiring 2 speakers in series or parallel (check the manufacturers instructions) or I have been carrying the larger, higher wattage speakers from Dallee Electronics since we began Crusader Rail. Check out our speaker selector webpage for the specs — our main Dallee webpage or use our link to the Dallee Electronics website for their entire product line.

We’re frantically restocking for the upcoming HUB Show in Marlborough, MA on Dec 1/2. After that we’ll be on our Holiday Hours schedule for the shop and will begin taking preorders for both the Amherst show in W. Springfield, MA Jan 26/27 and the GSMTS Timonium, MD get together Feb 2/3.

Shows: The above mentioned shows end 2018 and begin 2019. Next up after that will be the ATMA “Spring Thaw” meet Feb 23/24 and the Midwest Narrow Gauge Show in Salem, OH Mar 22/23

Our local weathercasters are saying there’s a change coming due to the El Niño out in the Pacific — which they are translating into a fair amount of snow for us in the East. Should be an interesting Winter show season. Check your shovels and get more ice melter and antifreeze for your windshield washers.

Don’t eat too much turkey!
