Good News About the Future of NWSL Stanton Drives

(new)

Web Site

On Neil Stanton's s-cab.com web site, he made a blog entry concerning the Stanton Drive:

"These drives have always been manufactured and sold by NWSL. They are designed by Stanton but are not an S-CAB product and will not be offered as such on the S-CAB website. Plans are underway to continue their manufacture in Montana by a spin-off organization staffed by the same individuals who currently build and test these products. How they will be sold after NWSL is closed has not yet been determined, but end-user sales are likely to become a "direct-sale only" item managed by Dave Rygmyr, who will also continue to be responsible for OEM sales. As inventory is replenished "NWSL" will fade away, but "Stanton Drive" is protected by copyright and will not change."

New Animated Signs

(updated)

Web Site

Miller Engineering announces two three new animated signs that will be shipping in April. However, you can place your orders now.

The Theodore Hamm's Brewing Company was the name of an American brewing company established in 1865 in St. Paul, Minnesota. As Hamm's expanded, additional breweries were acquired in other cities. The company passed through several owners over the years and is currently brewed and sold by Miller Coors of Chicago, Illinois.

Swingline was founded in 1925 in New York City by Jack Linsky. At that time, it was known as the Parrot Speed Fastener Company and opened its first manufacturing facility in Long Island City in 1931. Eight years later the company changed its name to Speed Products and created the first top-opening stapler, allowing easy refilling of a full strip of staples. This design eventually became the industry standard. In 1956 the company was renamed Swingline.

The U.S. flag animated sign for store windows will now also be available in April.

Todd Architectural Models & Layouts announces that their O-scale factory flats are now available in S-scale. The model is based on the Paterson Silk Factory in Paterson, New Jersey. The model features a laser scored and cut elevation, window and door elements, added sills and cast stone, and built-up laser scored/cut or styrene cornice detail.

The shadowbox version has individual floors, is ready for 5050 SMD LEDs, and has a wire-routing tube installed (LEDs pre-installed is an option, see below).

When you place your order, these are the options available to you:
- window style: single-height, double-hung; or, 2/3-height double-hung, 1/3-height fixed 4-over-2 pane (shown in the photos).
- clear or translucent glazing.
- brick or cast stone cornice.
- first-floor layout format: all windows; or, a pair of doors in window columns 3 and 4; or a single larger door centered between window columns 3 and 4.

Swedish Ship "Vasa" Model Kit

(new)

Web Site

If you have a harbor scene in your layout or diorama, and want to have an excursion ship docked, you might want to consider this ship. This is a 1:65 scale model of the Swedish warship Vasa. The way the company "DeAgostini Model Space" works is that you buy a subscription. Each month they send you a part of the entire kit. In this case, it is a 12-month subscription. You build the sub-assemblies while you wait for the next month's arrival. At the end of the delivery you will have a completed model! If you buy it after the subscription has been run, you can buy the entire kit in one go, if so desired.

Port Lines Hobby Supply Updates

(new)

Web Site

Doug Peck mentioned that he will NOT have A.F. parts at his booth at the 2018 NASG Convention in Boxbourough, MA, unless you make prior arrangements with him for pick-up at the show.

They have replacement can motors in stock for A.C. Gilbert A.F. 0-8-0 locomotives, to make them run at "scale" speed.

They have the new corner skirts for the 960-series of A.F. passenger cars in stock at a set of four for $8.95.

Double-header drawbars are now in stock, intended for the Hudson or Northern A.F. locomotives. Require no permanent modifications to use.

They have in stock the pre-war Joyline #120 tender drop-couplers with twist-tab.

In their tools section, they have a new Steam Drive Wheel Assembly tool. With this tool you can press-fit the assembly of the three-piece steam drive wheel, and at the same time set the proper rear offset of the center-hub. Instructions included.

The company now offers cast-metal sideframes for A.F. F9 diesel locomotives, so that they are not so top-heavy (reduces wobble).

Port Lines stocks Fox Valley track components, but, due to their popularity, they are now out of stock. Fox Valley expects them to be available again near the end of the summer 2018.

Port Lines carries the Tichy Train Group S-scale decals. There are now over 400 decal sets available from Tichy!
