Company Store Update - October, 2017!

Written by Conductor

I have recently learned that my decal printer will be retiring at the end of 2017.  This news has compelled me to accelerate development of the last remaining Reading HO scale decal sets that I've been wanting to produce, and to restock for the final time those sets for which my inventory was low.  Please stay tuned for announcements about a few upcoming new releases over the next several weeks.

That said, the following sets are in LOW supply and will NOT be reordered.  Numbers in parentheses are verified inventory as of October 15, 2017:

  • Flatcar sets, both WHITE (16) and YELLOW (10)
  • Gondola sets in YELLOW (18)

If you're interested in any of these sets for your layout, please proceed to the Company Store and place your order.  It's first come, first serve, and when they're gone, they're GONE.  I have decided NOT to pursue finding a new supplier at this time to keep production going - I have "too many irons in the fire" with other projects, and construction of my own layout, and have decided to focus on those projects at this point.

The sets listed below either have reasonable levels of inventory at this point, or have been re-ordered for the final time:

  • 40' Green "Banner" boxcars
  • Boxcar Red "Speed Lettering" boxcars
  • Green "Speed Lettering" boxcars
  • White "Speed Lettering" for Gondolas
  • Boxcar Red "Roman Lettering" boxcars
  • Cast Iron Wayside Signs
  • Cast Iron Crossbucks
  • 3D-Printed Concrete Rail Racks
