What's New

Given the number of late orders that could not be fill for the last business cars please review the following project list to add any additional orders ASAP.

We (meaining me!) have decided that life has changed enough that it is time to reach out a bit more.   BPL will now have a page on Facebook (@BPLBrassworks)  I may post often, or occasionally, or not for a while - as I can find the time.  I do hope to use it to provide pictures and links of our models, for our customers to review and enjoy, that they might not otherwise come across. You comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome.
