Hi Kids,

Last week-end's Belleville show appeared to be another successful show, with sales for me being an all-time record, as far as I can remember. Thanks are due to the efforts of the Belleville Model Railroad Club and the Brighton & Presqu'ile Railroad Club. Their members put a lot of work into organising these shows.

There were no comments on the forthcoming SW1200RS, so presumably the release as advertised met with your approval. Keep your pre-orders coming.

Talking of True Line I have ordered a few of the new CN and CV cabeese for stock, so you still have a chance to pre-order certain schemes. I am placing my order for the transfer vans on Monday morning, so please have any remaining pre-orders in by then. These can all be found under New Products in the Store.

The Kato AC4400CWs turned up a few days ago. Its been a while since we've had something from them and they didn't disappoint. The locomotive in CPs beaver scheme is now in stock.

Well - Jason had me working a few days ago with that CN "Surprise". I've been told that all your pre-orders are okay but the cars are now all but sold out. I have two Clubs and two Lakes left in the Store. Again, see New Products.

I've just received more late-40s Chevrolets and Studebaker vehicles from Sylvan, the latest CN Lines magazine, more Model Power die-cast vehicles (well, they just keep sellin...) and a shipment of Train Control Systems decoders (the best around). I've ordered a few of the last True Line "Northern", road number 6234, for stock and expect them next week.

More Digitrax and SoundTraxx stock is expected about a week from now, whilst the True Line MP40 and 8-hatch refrigerator cars are due any time.

If Christmas gifts are on your mind and I don't have what you are looking for in stock, please place your order, well, now. There are not too many shipping days 'til Christmas.

The exchange rate used in the Store is still 1.05.

Have a great week,
