It is fixed now.  You may have to do a forced refresh CTRL-F5 on most browsers if you recently visited that link to the 2022 catalog.

Hi Bill,

We are glad you are back.  Thanks for the suggestion. We are updating the website and will incorporate features like a common menu.

We hope to have them by early spring.  I always tell our customers that we don't make any money until we deliver them, so we are as anxious to deliver them as you are to receive. As soon as we have some decorated samples, we will post them.
Come visit us at the Amherst Railway Society Railroad Hobby Show.  We will be in our regular spot in the Better Living center (near the corner of building by Dunkin' Donuts). Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm and Sunday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.

For show info visit the show website.

The Dash 9's are on the water.  The port arrival is mid February, so you should start to see them in the hobby stores by the end of February.

Also, if you click on the YouTube icon when posting, it will show a preview on your post like this:

Also, how do you 'log off' ?


To post pictures, in the fifth toolbar in the posting section, the second icon lets you post pictures (we don't host them).  You can hover over each icon for a brief description of its function.

To Log off: In the upper left hand corner, it shows your logon name.  Click on the drop down box.  There are also other options for your account here.
It should work now.

Thanks for letting us know.  We will get it fixed.

The turntable comes with a decoder installed.  However, it still includes the analog controller and shorting plug for those that prefer analog control.  The buildings colors have also been changed from the previous release.

  My mistake with previous note, Baldwin built 195 2-6-2T's, no idea of Class though.
  The ALCO 2-6-2T's were built for the British War Dept, the majority of light railways (80%)being operated by
the Canadian Light Railway Corps

The locomotive is documented in detail in the book Narrow Gauge to No Man's Land By Richard Dunn.

After you open the flipbook, click on the down arrow at the top to reveal a menu.  The icon on the left side of the menu will allow you to download a pdf file.

Have fun,

Use this link for HTML5 instead of Flash.  The drop-down menu will allow you to download a PDF file if you wish.


This link is the HTML5 version instead of Flash, give it a try.
