  I don't know if this was posted before but I just read on Garden Railways site that "Barry Olsen, the proprietor, is retiring after 20 years". I am happy for Barry (glad some folks still get to retire) but sad to hear this because I am an owner of a connie 2-8-0 that I was hoping to someday put one of Barry's drive systems in. Lately it seems the whole large scale community is falling apart.

Steve, et al,

The website is gone, advertising is gone, P.O. Box is gone and no more CC processing, but I have produced alot of units in the past twenty years and they are all under warranty.  So I must remain accessible and fully capable.

Does this mean you won't be at the train shows?

Bill,

That may have been true at one time, but now I visit the site and read what you and a few others have said and then look for one which you haven't got to yet.

But Bill, you have made it fun and useful.

It will continue.

Barry,

It has a long relationship, Wow!!!!  over 16 years now.  You were my inspiration all these years and I will never know as much about what is inside these critters as you do!!!  I am glad that you will keep visiting and correcting my mistakes and mis-speaks.
