Hello everyone,
First : Happy New year and all the health that you desire !
Second : Saddly, to no suprise, the Brill that many of you have pre-ordered, have miss their December deadline.  After many e-mails, all I was able to get for information, is that they will be produced (Brill + Prevost) in “spring 2023”.  They don’t even try to comit to a specific date.  I’m anxious to get to see their face too, but noting more I can do!
Take care, be safe and talk to you soon!

Bonjour à tous,
Premièrement : bonne année et je vous souhaite toute la santé que vous désirez!
Deuxièment : Vous comme moi, êtes désolé de voir que les Brill on manquées leur date d’arrivée de décembre!  Après plusieurs courriels, la seule information que j’ai pu obtenir, c’est qu’elles seront produites (Les Brills et les Prévost) ce “printemps 2023”.  Il ne me disent même pas une date spécifique.  J’ai hâte de voir leur face, mais je ne peut pas rien faire de plus!
Prenez soins de vous et à la prochaine…

Atlas Acquires HO Scale River Point Station Vehicle Tooling

December 2022

Hillside, NJ – Atlas Model Railroad Company, Inc. is proud to announce the purchase of HO Scale vehicle tooling along with designs for certain previously unannounced productsfrom River Point Station Fine Scale Models of Warwick, RI. Vehicle molds acquired include the Expedition EL, F-250, F-350 and more.  A complete list of the acquired tooling is below.

“Previously, in December of 2020, River Point Station announced that they would be streamlining their product line and would cease producing N Scale vehicles and we did not want to see a void left in the market, so we acquired the N scale tooling” said Paul Graf, CEO of Atlas. “After a successful launch of N scale models utilizing this tooling, we are happy to announce that we have acquired RPS’ HO Scale vehicle tooling as well and look forward to continued success with the line.”

River Point Station Fine Scale Models was founded in 2006 by Ron Elsdoerfer to supply HO accessory kits to modelers. In the 14 years that followed, River Point Station grew their offerings to include HO & N Scale Vehicles. Over the past two years, River Point Station announced a scaling back of certain aspects of their business which led to this acquisition.  More information can be found on their website: http://www.riverpointstation.com/pages/latest_news.php

Founded in 1924 and incorporated in 1949 as Atlas Tool Co. Inc., present day Atlas Model Railroad Co. produces locomotives, rolling stock, track, and accessories in N, HO and O scales for its Atlas Master, Atlas Classic, Trainman, and Atlas O lines.

Bonjour à tous,
Voyant que la pandémie commence à s’essoufler, j’ai pu recommencer à reprendre une partie de mes plaisirs d’autrefois : des voyages pour voir des trains!  Ouin, pour mes clients amateur d’autobus, je suis revenu bredouille en photo!  Oui, j’ai croisé des Greyhound en direction de Boston (autant à Burlington (VT) qu’à Concord (NH)), mais j’étais au volant à toutes les fois, donc impossible de prendre une photo!  Voici un petit “re-cap” de mon dernier mois :

Hello everyone,
Seeing that the pandemic is starting to run out of “steam”, I was able to start resuming some of my former pleasures: trips to see trains! Yes, for my bus-loving customers, I came back empty-handed! Yes, I met Greyhounds in the direction of Boston (as much in Burlington (VT) as in Concord (NH)), but I was driving all the time, so impossible to take a picture! Here is a little “re-cap” of my last month:

May 9th, 2022 – Farnham, QC – Local switching : Gelpac Poly.

May 18th, 2022 – Burlington, VT – New England Central transfer run arriving at Vermont Railway Burlington yard. + Local switching : Global Co LLC with the tank train + NECR Leaving Burlington to go back at St-Alban’s home Yard.
             

     

May 21st, 2022 – North Conway scenic RR, North Conway, NH – Train ride in dome car with my kids!
