    Thanks guys! I went to Boston, Ma. for 6 weeks and now I am back in Capreol. "Home to the frozen tundra" LOL Will have more time to spend on my layout now, which is a great thing! and will probably stay involved in selling train stuff to a small degree.

    I sold Model Rail Structures to a guy named Will Annand, he still has the site up and running. (Although it has changed alot) As I said, I do plan on selling stuff, it just will be stuff that I manuf. I am working on 2 laser cut kits, a ranch house, and a snack shack. (easy to build) geared toward the novice to building wood kits. And, I am also starting the moulds for some resin detail parts. These will be in N, HO, & O scales.
    When I get going the wee little company will be known as Ironhorse Products.

    In the mean time I am open to any sugestions!

    And whatever I do will be done with customer service in mind.:thumb:

    Stripes...I think there is an enourmous market for cheap, high quality On3 detail parts.

    We need:
    -brake parts for Westinghouse's first generation of automatic airbrakes (as opposed to the straight air brakes or the later "fast acting" which came out in the late 1880's)
    -good DSP&P platform car stake pockets
    -good DSP&P brakewheels
    -DSP&P harp switch stands (working of course!...PSC only makes them in HO)
    -Mason Bogie castings
    -Colorado Central Porter 0-6-0 castings

    Ok? Those are VERY high demand items...I can assure you of that. sign1

    Welcome back, David. :wave: I thought that the company name sounded familiar, so I googled it:

    Iron Horse Products

    The spelling is different, although this isn't the one of which I was thinking. The one that I had in mind has a galloping horse logo, similar to that used by Norfolk Southern, and I think that they make detail parts.

    You're thinking of Iron Horse Models...Precision Scale's brass imports line...
    Precision Scale Co., Inc.
    MMI is their diecast import line.
