Just a little snow …
The new year has certainly started on a snowy note. Both the Amherst
Show in Springfield, MA and the GSMTS show in Timonium, MD found attendees coping
with snow and inclement weather. Those who made it (and there were LOTS who made
it) were treated to new products from manufacturers and their dealers. Next up
for us are the ATMA “Spring Thaw” meet February 21/22 and the Midwest Narrow Gauge
Show in Greenford, OH March 20/21. Then there’s the Fine Scale Model Railroader
Expo in Scranton, PA from March 26 thru 28. April will find us in Timonium, MD
again and Gardiner, NY for the Mid Hudson On30 Meet. More on these shows next
The new TCS WOW Diesel sounds are here and ready to ship. First
up is an EMD Prime Mover featuring the 567, 567 Turbo, 645 Turbo and 710 Turbo
Types. 30 Different Horns and 36 Bells are loaded in the system. Models offered
are the #1530 without Keep Alive; #1533 with Keep Alive and (soon) #1527 for the
Motherboards. Check our TCS page for pricing.
We’re getting more stock from Carolina Craftsman Models (HO) and
Builders in Scale Models (fmr Banta S Scale Kits). A high demand for BEST shingles
means we’ll have that line restocked shortly.
The new Central Valley Models 200′ thru Truss bridge kits flew off
our shelves — if you want one soon make sure you let us know and we’ll reserve
one for you.
Publications: the new HOn3 Annual has arrived and the On30 Annual
is due around mid to late March.
Take some time and check what you may need to finish or start projects
on your railroad. Make a list so you don’t forget anything — then stop by a show,
or contact us with your order so we can send it out or have it ready for a show
Time to take a quick breather — we’ll see you soon.
