Hi to everyone:

I suffered the disaster we all think about.  My mother board died on the computer.  My hard drive survived so I did not lose the business DATA.  Since the MB contains the e-mail files, they were lost.  I will take your e-mails off the business DATA list and build another mailing list.  If you have never ordered before, I may not have your e-mail so

register on line for any upcoming sale notifications.


So, I will still be open for the rest of the year. My hours will be Monday to Friday, 9AM to 5PM ET.  At that point with a further reduced inventory and total value, the business will be easier to sell as is. 


If you or anyone you know is interested in getting into the model RR business, please send them my way.  Maybe you know someone that is in the same position I was 15 years ago.  I retired early from teaching and needed something to bridge over to Social Security.  It worked out very well for me and it could for you.  A new buyer will also get access to all my suppliers.  This will give that person access to trains and layout supplies at wholesale prices.  You could save thousands of dollars just building your own layout. 


As model railroaders, we know that we should purchase many items when they are offered.  The major manufacturers are now producing BTO (Built to Order) products that must be ordered and purchased at that time or they may never be available again.  This will be the time to invest in signals like the other BTO products.  Even if you are not ready, now is the time to invest in our signal system for your future layout.  


I will be primarily selling off the stock.  If you have a layout design, I will have time to do a Signal Plan for your layout.  Signal Planning will take your layout design and show you where the signals should be placed and what model signal you should use in each location.  From that, you can determine the other accessories, such as plugs and couplers which you will need.  If you do not have a layout design, you will need to purchase enough signals and accessories to cover the size of the layout you intend to build.  I can also help you with that.  Any excess signals you purchase could be sold later line. (See System Design in margin above)


I will have limited time to do circuit board design or wire up circuit boards.  The Track Configuration Library (TCL) will still be available on line.  You can use it to do your own circuit design.  I can help you with that. 


I will also not have the time or ability for installations.  I just turned 71 and my joints are not what they used to be so getting up and down is very difficult.  I have worked with model railroad builders who could do this part of the installation for you.  If you need references, let me know.


I also may not have time for custom work.  I will wait to see how things go as time progresses.  I will also NOT be doing any train shows. 


If you wish to order products, send me an e-mail of what you want and I will send you an invoice with a Paypal request for payment or you can send a check.  You can also print out the order form on the web site and send it in with a check.  Remember shipping costs and NYS residences add 8.125% sales tax. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
