Hope the Summer’s been good to all so far. It's all hands on deck here as preparations are well underway for the National Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver. We’ll be set up and open for business from Wednesday evening thru Saturday noon (Aug 30 – Sept 2). There will be the usual Convention Specials and extra pop-up savings depending on how our suppliers can help us. The shop will be closed between Aug 27 and Sept 5. Our email service willing, we’ll try to answer messages while on the road (apologies if the system fouls up). Convention updates as we can on our Facebook page.
For future reference — mark your calendars now — the 2018 National Narrow Gauge Convention will be in Bloomington, MN (suburban Minneapolis) September 5 thru 8. More info for this and a recap of Denver next time.
Our restocking orders have arrived for TCS, PanPastel® products, TCS Steam Sound Kits, Kadee® couplers, KMP Models, San Juan Car Co. and Micro Engineering track, turnouts and bridges.
The Micro Engineering Co. website is back up and running for those having trouble finding it the last few weeks.
We should have a full order of the new SoundTraxx Tsunami 2 - 4400’s and the updated SoundCar systems for the Convention.
Our 2017 Fall Season will begin in Berea, OH October 7/8. Note that we will be unable to attend the October Timonium Great Scale Train Show the same weekend (but will be there in 2018). The Mid Hudson On30 meet in Gardiner, NY is next (10/20-21) followed by Syracuse, NY (11/4-5 – unable to attend the Altoona Fine Scale Expo), Allentown, PA (11/11-12) and Marlborough, MA (12/2-3).
