New Search Engine & Shopping Cart

The new search engine and shopping cart are about 99% complete. There are still some cosmetic changes the will have to be done and those will happen over time. 

New feature that has been added to the search is the ability to search for only in stock items. 
The shopping cart reverts back to the old Cart32 systems we had used for 14 years since the developer we hired and have since fired, could not get the job done in developing a version of the Cart32 shopping cart.

You can also search for order status and shopping cart again from our home page links. Orders beginning with 18 are not accessible as this was the no longer in exsistance shopping cart. 

Hurricane Micahel Moving In Overnight

Over night 10/11 Hurricane Michael will be moving into our area with 40mph sustained winds and up to 3" of rain.

Walthers 2019 HO-N-Z Reference Book

It looks like the book will not ship to us now until around October 15th according to an update I received on Friday 09/28/18. So, as of this email the Reference Book will not ship until after I return from my fall vacation.
Sorry for the delay, but it is beyond my control.

Lionel Christmas Items Have Arrived!

Well, as I have stated in many many updates, product availability and missed due date for advance reservations continue to happen! Lionel is just another one of the repeat offendenders!

Case in point.

So, one can only guess when the 2018 Christmas items and restocks of some the staples will arrive?

News From Intermountain


Last month we notified you that the manufacturer we have been working with for several years had ceased operations and would no longer be supplying finished product to us or any of the several other companies doing business with them. At the same time we said that it was our full intention to move forward, establish new suppliers, and continue the production of new items as soon as possible.

We are pleased to tell you that we have selected and qualified new suppliers and have issued purchase orders for our initial production runs. Key InterMountain team members will be on site in the new factories in China during the week of September 24 to review assembly samples of initial projects, coordinate their production, establish quality standards, and put shipping arrangements in place.

I hope soon to be able to give you more concrete information about the order in which projects will be completed and specific scheduling information. In the meantime, in order to have stock on hand as we come into the heart of the modeling season, please review and take advantage of the in-stock list available on our website. We have a large stock of inventory on hand that will be of value during this interim period.

No Response From Manufacturers

Customer service issues are still a problem with some manufactures. Let me tell you the latest.

Many of you want BRH to start selling Athearn again and we have been trying to get someone from Athearn's parent company, Horizon Hobby, to contact us. We have tried emailing and calling and have had absolutely no response from them at all.

I have been trying to get the owner of Digitrax, Zana Ireland, to accept my calls for 3 years now. She has not responded to emails or a certified letter we sent in 2015. The reason we need to speak with her is that the current dealer sales rep has lied to me numerous times. When I was running the Miniature World of Trains BETA test I would need to be at that location. When the current sales rep claims he tried to contact me at the retail store, he never called during the operating hours. He never left a message or sent an email or even a letter. So, he closed the BRH account in November 2014. When I found out I tried to have then reopen the account, however, I did not want to work with that sales person. I made numerous attempts to get Zana on the phone back then, sent numerous emails and sent a letter. The staff their will not even allow me or anyone, they claim,  to leave a message on her line. That was in 2015. I have tried again in 2018 as well and I am getting the same response! No response!

About two months ago Micro Mark contacted me about selling their product which we will do. However, we needed to be able to upload their database. They where going to let me know if they can forward their database in a format that would be usable to add to our database of products.  It has been 3 months and we have received nothing.

I am doing everything I can to get as much product as I can for you all to purchase. The lack of response from companies like these is not acceptable!

On a positive note, the following companies have excellent customer service. Walthers, Peco, Bachmann, Kato, Atlas, TCS, Miller Engineering, Chooch, Accurail, LGB, Marklin, RRCircuits, Summit USA, Lionel and MRC. So let's support these excellent business when you can.
