2018 Summer sale

08/01/2018

Summer is progressing very nicely.  Like you, we're outside, not paying too much attention to the trains at the moment.  This is the perfect time for a SALE!   For an undetermined time we will provide an unknown discount for your purchase.  This will be a sale full of rumor and innuendo.  Just let us know what you would like and make an offer - we might be able to do that, or we might not.  You never know until you try.  (however, no layaways, payment will have to be in full - does not apply to previously reserved or requested models.)  (I know, we did this last year, but you folks liked it, so...)

Division Point update 2018 April 15

04/15/2018

Division Point has just announced that they will be picking up 3 of the projects from the Precision Scale catalog (we will help you with updated reservations once we have the new model specifications.)  From DP:

The Seaboard Airline P-1 streamlined Pacific, the Frisco 4-8-2 Mountain, and the RF&P Berkshire (which will now include the Pierre Marquette, and either the early C&O or the C&NW Berks). I had announced these Berks many years ago and never got the reservations to build them back when we had to do 200 models of each! I am the “Berkshire King” as it were, for doing 6 or so various Berks for various roads in the past. These 3 were never in the pile because they are slightly smaller than the NKP or NYC models. I have to get into my research again, but I don’t believe any of them have been done before.
The SAL P-1 was used to haul the “Orange Blossom Special” between the Left and Right coast of FL after the “E’s” were cut off. They had 2 engines streamlined for this service, and we’ll do both.
Don’t know too much about the Frisco engines, except that he had listed 7 versions…we’ll do 2 or maybe 3 including the semi streamlined version.

 

Precision Scale closing 2018-April

04/10/2018

Our friends at Precision Scale are closing out their business activities.   They have recently sold their operation, along with their parts inventory.   As a result, all outstanding future project listings have been canceled.  There is a possibility that a couple projects may be picked up by another importer.  We will hold reservations for some items and will follow up with those of you who may still have an opportunity to obtain a desired model.

We wish Mark and Beth well.  They have built a strong track record of producing fine scale models for our enjoyment and have earned some time for themselves.
