Hi All,

I had been working with NWSL over the past years to add regear kits, and complete gearboxes for two different Bachmann Big Hauler locomotives.  The owner is a great guy, who has suffered a personal family loss, that has impacted him greatly, and he no longer wishes to operate the business.  I clearly support his decision since family is more important than running a small business.  He has not offered the business for sale and has no plans to do so.

He needs alone time at this point, but check the website to purchase from existing stock and the last date to order.   As I understand it the business will close on August 30 2019.

My association was not(and is not) a paid one.  I agreed to help because the Bachmann Large Scale projects were based on product Bachmann no longer supports.  As a guy who is Bachmann supporter,  I regret that these projects will be ending, but I do support him(the owner) is his decisions to close up shop.
