Over 25 years of mail order and retail
|Friday, March 27, 2015|
I have quickly come to understand the value and convenience of the mailorder business you and Pat started over twenty years ago, and how it has helped probably thousands of model railroaders everywhere, I'm sure, over the years. I'm pleased you're there, I just wish the store was closer. Marty Phillips, "Oceanside" BC
Please note the store will be closed on Thursday, March 26th as I am taking Pat in for a radiation treatment and assessment.|
Pat and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your prayers, concerns and best wishes. Your support has been instrumental in helping us deal with this health issue.

VIA Power in Stock
We have just taken delivery of VIA P42's from Athearn and VIA F40PH and LRC locomotives from Rapido. Good stock in DC and DCC with sound.
Recent Consignments and Purchases
We have recently acquired a substantial book collection, mostly Canadian, over 260 titles. Please contact us by email and we will forward a copy of the list to you by return email. Note these books are not available for viewing at the store as there is no room on our bookcase shelves. We are also working on 3 estate collections at the moment and have in excess of 400 pieces of used rolling stock, 90 buildings, and 20 steam and 25 diesel locomotives, many in Canadian livery. These are being put out in the store as time and space permit. Just arrived are about 90 kits from Train Miniature, MDC Roundhouse and Accurail. From the same estate is a nice selection of Canadian brass which we hope to get listed over the next 2 weeks. Another collection has just arrived with B&M, CV, CN and CPR locomotives and a very nice selection of structures. Rolling stock with the collection includes passenger equipment from B&M, CNR and CPR.
SUPPLIERS and SERVICES
We deal with Walthers on a weekly basis ( we consolidate orders during the week and send them in on Sunday. They are available for pickup or mailing the following weekend ). We send orders to Horizon every Wednesday for Athearn, Roundhouse/MDC and Intermountain products and receive them by Friday as well. We can give a one week turnaround on your order if it is in stock at our suppliers. If you see or hear about something new we can get it for you or we will take advance reservations.
We are active sellers on EBAY and have been expanding our Ebay store. I encourage you to check it out on a regular basis as there are a number of excellent buys available, from Walthers, Proto and Athearn. Many of the items we list in our fixed price sales are out of production models we get through our estate purchases; and store listings are surplus stock and items acquired from our suppliers at reduced prices. In some cases, store listings are 20 to 40% of suggested retail. Click on the Ebay logo above left to go to our current auctions. In addition, please check out our Ebay store listings for fixed price items.
