We're back.

Just walked in the door after returning from West Springfield.  First, I want to thank all of you who stopped by to introduce yourselves and say hello.  It is always great to meet/see you.  Second, I just wanted to remind all of you who have outstanding orders, that we will get them out as soon as we can.  Gonna take the rest of today to unwind and tomorrow, I have to be back at my day job, but after that, I’m working on order fullfillment.  Shouldn’t be more than a couple of days.  Thanks for your patience and support.  Third, and last, I think, we had a pretty good show.  Thoms new HOn30 layout ran like the jewel that it is.  Hopefully, we will have some pix and video up soon.  Again, thanks for your support and patience.  We’ll be back up and running ASAP.

Next show on the calender is the 2014 Chicago O Scale Meet.  It will be March 14-16 at the Westin Lombard, 70 Yorktown Center, Lombard, IL 60148  For room info, 1-800-937-8461.  For meet info go to <>.

Well that’s all for now.  I’m sure Thom will have some comments.



Shipping delays vs. Shows. What to do?

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are leaving for the Amherst Show in West Springfield MA in a couple of days.  What this means is that we won’t be shipping any DVD’s or Shingles, till we get back next week Wednesday.  So if you haven’t seen a recent order or you are placing one, please bare with us.  We will ship as soon as we can.

If you are coming out to the show, we are in the same place as last year.  Better Living Center, Section 40, Tables D & E.  Right Next to us at tables F & G will be RS Laser Works, who did the cutting for our shingles.  We will probably be discussing new Laser cut products.

Stop by and say hello.

Every picture tells a story from Ken Plumb

The blog post said that getting pictures of your models on layouts was rare, so, why not mine?
I’m no craftsman, and my little pike is not professional grade, but I’m having much to much fun to care. As it is, I make things and plunk them down somewhere while telling myself a story. After a while, the story changes and so does the stuff… (Everything, including track, gets moved about.)

So, here it is 1930 in Fort Smith AR’s south side. The Parker & Watts circus is ‘wintering over’ in the old Western Wheelbarrow Factory (the furniture factory, of course), and, being good neighbors, use the elephant to shift box cars for the Arkansas Coffin Company across the street. (Which actually happened) 


"Stumpy" visits the Madeline Island RR

The Madeline Island RR is the ficticious narrow gauge mining line that is our current traveling demo layout.

Stumpy is the traveling loco from Fresh off the boat and on the dock. We may have a problem here.

Hope you can visit with us in Springfield MA. (Stumpy is going to Milwaukee instead)
