Ticket to Ride, September 2012

The upgraded TCS Diesel sounds mentioned last time are now all in stock.

Another group of Cal-Scale HO detail parts are now here and ready for sale.

I’ve received some MV Lenses from a winning bid for a closed vendor’s stock. After sorting these a list will be posted to the website. Mostly colors – very few clear ones.

Micro Engineering now has Code 70 and 83 HO standard turnouts on factory backorder through late June. Still waiting for ladder turnouts in code 83 and code 70 a&b.

Customers have been calling; leaving a message and wonder why I do not return a call immediately. Look at the bottom of this webpage to see whether I am at a show right now. My answering system does not provide for remote checking of my calls. I do that the first day after returning … and thanks for your understanding.

From 2 months ago — Mary and I finally took Rumble and Noah to the Strasburg Rail Road to check things out. They both had fun and weren’t frightened of the whistles. Mary got to do some Amish shopping and I inhaled plenty coal smoke, coughed some and realized all was well with the world for a little while.

National NG Convention Sacramento is just a bit too far for us to attend this year, but we’ll be at St. Louis for the 40th Anniversary Convention.
