Port Lines Hobby Supply Updates

(new)

Web Site

Doug Peck, of Port Lines Hobby Supply, states that he is still taking pre-orders for the American Models 4-6-2 locomotives with Vanderbilt tenders. American Models reported to him that they have encountered a production problem, which delayed the release of the new engines until sometime later this summer. They indicated that if you pre-order now, you can specify your preferred road number on your locomotive!

Port Lines has in stock the new LC springs. These were only used by Gilbert on the aluminum passenger cars, but they can be installed on any LCs to prevent them from uncoupling. They now also have the #751 Log Loader solenoid plungers in stock. Also, the red chimneys for the AF Baggage Smasher and Suburban Station are available again.

The company's single-axle quartering tool is back in stock.

The MTH straight tracks (10" and 15") are now in stock again.

The #5 Fox Valley Models turnouts are also back in stock.

The company has several new AF-related books in stock.

Doug requested that any custom repair work be mailed to the company after mid-August, as there are few, if any, people available to do the work until then.

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.

Concept Models Re-enters S-scale Market

(new)

Web Site

Earlier in 2019, the webmaster, yours truly, noticed that Concept Models had removed all of their S-scale models from their web site. Contacting the owner resulted in a reply that indicated insufficient sales. Well, today a press release was sent to us where the owner of Concept Models has changed his mind. He said that although he is over 80 years old, he will continue to offer S-scale models. Their web site has also been updated to once again list the S-scale products. So, if you have been looking at one of their kits, consider ordering it soon. A sample of previously-produced cars are shown here.

Factory Building Flats

(new)

Web Site

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 full-width elevation piece measures 9" long by 10-1/8" tall and includes six columns of windows. The partial-width elevation piece measures 3-1/8" long by 10-3/8" tall and includes two columns of windows. An entrance canopy will be available as an option for both elevation pieces. The purpose of the partial-width is to provide a seamless connection between multiple full-width elevation pieces. The models may be purchased built-up and painted as a flat (nominally 3/8" deep) or as a shadowbox (nominally 1-1/4" deep). 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.

Their web site shows only the O-scale models, but their S-scale model prices are about $10 cheaper, and they are as follows:

"Full-width" Basic Elevation:
- flat only = $80
- shadowbox unlit = $90
- shadowbox lit = $120

"Partial-width" Basic Elevation:
- flat only = $55
- shadowbox unlit = $65
- shadowbox lit = $90

Three-piece Set (two full and one partial):
- flat only = $210
- shadowbox unlit = $240
- shadowbox lit = $310

Two-piece Add-on Set (one full and one partial, see photos):
- flat only = $130
- shadowbox unlit = $150
- shadowbox lit = $200

To order, the company recommends contacting them via e-mail or via telephone to make arrangements:
