FROM BEHIND THE COUNTER
WE ARE KEEPING YOU INFORMED
 

NEWS AND UPDATES

05/09/21

No Longer Available

BRH has removed the following manufacturers from our website. They are East Coast Circuits, Summit USA and MTH-Railking.

Any outstanding back orders and advance reservation have been filled so there should be no issues moving forward.

Renovation Sale Round 2

With the success of the first Renovation Sale I have decided to have another sale to sell off the rest of what is left in the store.

I still have not decided when this will occur yet but I will announce Renovation Sale 2 very soon.


Inbound Shipping Getting Better

As of this update the Milwaukee and Easton Warehouses seem to be back on track with shipping the same day we order. However, the shipments from these locations is still taking 5 to 7 days to arrive via our new inbound shipper UPS. But that time frame is far better than the lag times Fedex has recently been providing.  Some shipments still arrive via Fedex but I have eliminated Fedex from the shipping mix when possible due to their very poor customer service
 over the last year.

Successful Renovation Sale

All I have to say is WOW!

Thanks to everyone that came to the store last Thursday, Friday and Saturday and waiting in the long check out line on Thursday.

I was busy in the store everyday of the three days. I was so busy that this News and Updates is a day late.

So thanks again for making the Renovation Sale a great success!

April Sales

As expected April year to year sale where down by a lot with the first month of the Covid shutdowns in 2020 driving the best April ever. That was ging to be hard to match of course.

April 2020 vs 2021 down 39.6%. March 2021 vs April 2021 sale up 16.7%. The last 30 days have seen new customers up 33%, returning customer up 39%, overall receipts up 37% and number of items ordered up 62%.

So overall a very busy month which is good.

Shopping Cart Issues?

I have heard from a couple of customers that they where having issues when adding items to the shopping cart.

They would add one item then return to the product search page to add another item and find that the first item was not in the shopping cart.

They could be several reasons for this. Too much info stored in your 'cookies'. The best solution is to clear your 'cookies'. This should be done regardless of the issues with the BRH shopping cart.

But the real issue is the browser you may be using.

Our shopping cart works best via Firefox, Microsoft Edge (Internet Explorer) and Google Chrome.

If you are having issues still, please contact me at contactus@blueridgehobbies.com

Product Availability

Product availability is still an issue and I think by the end of this year there will be a lot of normal items that should be in stock every day  will not be available.  So think ahead for your fall and winter projects and get the product you will be needing now to make sure that you can continue to mover forward with your projects.

There is another shipment of Peco track expected at the warehouse at the beginning of June so we should have the track and accessories in stock at BRH by mid month.

Calling or emailing BRH will get you the exact some answer since our product search page is where we check for the products status.

Denver, Front Range and Rocky Mountain Railroad Update

It has been a while since I have updated you all on my personal layout the HO Scale DFR&RMRR so here we go.

The helix down from the 40th Ave Yard to the Cheyenne and Kansas City staging on the lower level is complete along with about a third of the staging track.

I was in a quandary about some lighting for the overall layout  since the original recessed lighting that was installed for my previous N Scale European layout  was now not adequate for the new layout. So I decided to add some more recessed lights to the layout room.

Last month a friend of mine Pete Wittsack came down from Maryland just before we took vacation last month and we cut in wholes and wire in the ceiling for some 54 LED recessed cans and added three new 15amp circuits to the buildings sub panel.

This month as time has permitted, I have wired and installed all the lighting fixtures which has really brightened up the layout room. These lights in conjunction with the main level LED lighting that was installed over last summer for the areas below the third level of the layout, have really brightened up the layout room and the display! The original 16 recessed cans installed when the train building was built 19 years ago for the N Scale layout, just where not enough for this much larger display.

As of this email I  am installing lighting controllers to add in the day / night scenes. The dimming will be controlled by computer to run a night time scene every 30 minutes or when I am running the layout in "show mode" but can be adjusted manually as well.

Next up, back to finishing the Cheyenne / Kansas City staging track which should not take more then a couple of days.
