It Only Happens Once A Year



Lowest prices so far this year! Click on the image above for more info!

Shipping Reminders

Don't forget that the world is in the midst of holiday shipping with overall online Black Friday sales up 30% nationwide over last year. This means at minimum there will be that much more shipping volume within the USPS, Fedex and UPS systems. With Cyber Monday online retailer sales tomorrow, even more items will be  'in the stream' bogging down the shipping systems even further with just over 3 weeks until Christmas.

Because of Covid 19 BRH was already seeing inbound delays to us. This will only get worse as we move forward this month. Ed and I will be processing and shipping your orders as time permits each day. With BRH now getting deliveries 7 days a week, we hope not to get bogged down this year. But that is up to the shippers, wholesalers and manufacturers.

So, this holiday season, please be patient.

The Last 5 Days!

Late Friday evening one of our hard drives stopped communicating with our server completely. Not sure what happened. A partial evening update occurred messing up the home page. While operationally the rest of the BRH site and operations where fine. But it took from Friday until yesterday afternoon to get the drive back online. We back up all drives weekly on Friday nights, so we needed to recover the weeks data. As of this email, there are no issues! So, sorry the delay in responding to emails and the like since we had all hands on deck to get back up to speed today!

So this update which would have been sent on Sunday was delayed as well.

BRH Informs

Did you ever notice that Blue Ridge Hobbies is the only hobby retailer in the world that let's you know what is really going on in the model railroad hobby?

Rapido Trains Announces New HO Commuter Cars, PRR F30 Flatcar

Newly tooled, highly detailed models have been announced by Rapido Trains. The Bi-Level Commuter Coaches and Cab Cars are based on the familiar lozenge-shaped commuter cars used by a variety of U.S. and Canadian commuter systems including GO Transit, Montreal AMT, Los Angeles Metrolink, Dallas/Fort Worth Trinity Rail Express and several others. The cars are currently built by Bombardier, but predecessor builders include UDTC and
Hawker Siddeley. Rapido is offering them in all appropriate body variations (riveted and welded) and they include interior lighting and seats, cab car lighting for DC and DCC and tinted windows. They are available in coach/cab car sets and single coaches. For Pennsylvania Railroad fans the PRR F30 Flatcar in F30 A, D and G versions has been announced. 1500 of these 50' flatcars were constructed in 1933 and 1934, and their success saw
another 250 built in 1951. They operated continent wide, so every modern-steam through 1970s-era layout can use a few. Hundreds were converted for trainer-on-flatcar (TOFC) service and served Trailer-Train/TTX too. The models feature die cast bodies, accurate details, trucks and decoration. They'll have wide customer appeal. Check out the models below and reserve now.
