On the Durango & Silverton, July 24, 2015

Hopefully everyone’s finished with the flu bug and almost finished with shoveling snow — but that warm spell here in Philadelphia a week ago was terribly refreshing. Here’s what’s happening:

We’re adding a new PanPastel kit to our stock — Landscape Colors (#30072). It’s a set of 1 each of Chromium Oxide Green, Paynes Gray Extra Dark, Red Iron Oxide, Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White and Yellow Ochre. Also includes a Sofft Painting Knife, 2 Sofft Knife Covers, 1 Sofft Sponge Bar, 1 Sofft Angle Slice Sponge and a Palette Tray with Cover.

It hasn’t been mentioned for awhile, but we still have the Sn2 Train & Trooper Brass Forneys (factory painted), Railcars (factory painted) and Passenger Coaches (factory painted and unpainted) in stock. Call and we’ll let you which loco numbers we have left plus early or late versions.

Restocking orders received include Tichy Windows, BEST Shingles, the earlier mentioned PanPastels and Labelle Lubes. Soon to arrive: A-Line Chain and remotoring parts, Tomar, Caboose Industries and Micro Engineering Co.

Upcoming shows include the RPM East Meet in Greensburg, PA 3/24-25; Timonium, MD 4/9-10 and the Mid Hudson On30 Meet in Gardiner, NY 4/21-22. A note for the Narrow Gauge Community — despite what some people have reported to me, the MANGG Module Meet in Kimberton, PA on 5/20 is happening! There was a delay in signing the contract for the hall with the Fire Company (not us), but that has finally occurred — so get over to the MANGG Website midatlanticng.org to register as an attendee, vendor or displaying your module.

Until next time, stay safe.
