You know, lately I have been getting a lot of flack for the delays over in China.  There, unfortunately is nothing I can do about it.  Factories are closing and skilled workers are becoming more and more difficult to find.  The state of the economy and our hobby only compound the matter.  
    You can rest assured that we appreciate your patience, and that we are doing everything that we can..including going over to China in the summer - trust me, not fun.  
     There are lots of projects on the go that were all supposed to be out by now, but we are still trying to catch up from other issues.  This year promises the 8 hatch reefers mini box cars and cabooses and new transfer vans, not to mention re-runs of old favorites like the 4 axle c-liner in correct US schemes and our new lower priced box cars.  There are also several other projects such as the new paint colours and some top secret stuff that only a few privileged people know about (ahem Mr. Moses...).   
     I assure you that we are doing all that we can, and appreciate your business.   I would also like to remind you that we have our contest starting this upcoming month and encourage you to enter your photos to win!   I hope to see some of you at the upcoming Ottawa train show in a few weeks!
