WE ARE KEEPING YOU INFORMED
 

NEWS AND UPDATES

02/01/23

Lack Of Updates

Sorry for the lack of updates and news in January. Just a bit to busy with personal and business business most of the month.

Also, there was not much happening in the model railroading hobby.

Miniature World of Trains Donations

Since July, many of you have been donating to the MWOT project via you online BRH orders and the project thanks you for those donations.

Since July the project had not processed those donations via the MWOT bank as the project announced late last year. The plan was to process them at the beginning of January which did not occur.

Please be aware that the processing of these donations will occur this weekend. In some cases many of you made several donations during this time. The normal donation is $5.00. However, if you have made several BRH orders with donations on each order, you may see a charge from the Miniature World of Trainsmore then $5.00. Some will have $10, $15, $20 or more in one credit card processing transaction.

Miniature World of Trains Requests

Requests for more information about the Miniature World of Trains project are being processed as well. Request for additional donation information and volunteering will be answered as time permits over the next 30 days.

Atlas Buys River Point Station

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 products from 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.

New From Bowser

 Bowser HO and N models! HO modelers in Canada and the U.S. will love highly
detailed Executive Line MLW M630 diesels. They were mainstays on
many Canadian Pacific lines and could be found running in the
U.S. too, so they have broad customer appeal. You will love
the smooth-running chassis and authentic decoration in a variety
of CP and other schemes. N Scalers will love the latest round of
PRR Class GLa 2-Bay and 4-Bay H21a Open Hoppers. Based on
Pennsylvania Railroad prototypes that operated in both steam and
classic diesel eras, these cars were owned by Pennsy as well as
subsidiaries and subsequent owners, so they wore a variety of
schemes. Cars feature molded loads, authentic decoration, metal
wheels and knuckle couplers. All of these models are selling fast
with some schemes and road numbers already sold out.

Rapido Problems

From Rapido On Tuesday 12/20/22:

It has come to our attention that there have been some questions raised with our recent delivery of Budd Manor Sleepers and Baggage-Dorm cars. We are aware of these concerns and are currently looking into the matter of a discoloration observed on the roof of some cars. That discoloration is where the injection gate is located. This gate has been there since the cars were tooled in 2012, but this is the first time that it has become a significant issue on these models. The team is studying the models, the discoloration, and seeing if there is a solution possible.

We will try and reach some conclusions as soon as possible. However, with the upcoming holidays, this may not happen until the first or second week of January. So please bear with us, as all of our staff are working very hard during these times. We appreciate and value all of our customers very highly, and want to thank you for your continued support.

We of course stand behind our products 100%.

If you have any issues, please contact Rapido directly.
