Notes

This company manufactures just about anything you need to build a complete S-scale layout. If you are just starting out, or if you are looking to expand your layout, be sure to visit this company's web site, and you might also want to order their catalog.

History

Ron started the company in 1981, with their first advertisements appearing in 1982 showing their first product, the FP7 diesel locomotive. S-Helper Service, created to support the manufacture of new S-scale products, started collaborating with American Models in 1989. This ended in 1995. The future looked bright when American Models announced in 2017 that they had acquired a new and larger manufacturing facility. Unfortunately, Ron passed away on December 4, 2021. Ron's wife, Karen, announced that the company will continue to operate with the same personnel.
