Model Railroading is a hobby that appeals to folks in so many ways. For nearly a half century we have enjoyed manufacturing, designing and providing unique kits for the model builder who can relate to auto maker Walter Chrysler’s statement : “There is in manufacturing a creative joy that only poets are supposed to know. Someday I’d like to show a poet how it feels to design and build a railroad locomotive.” Vincent Curcio The Life and Times of an Automotive Genius p118

WE RECEIVED A NOTICE OF PRICE INCREASES ON ETCHED BRASS FROM OUR CONTRACTOR IN CALIFORNIA JAN 11, 2013. THERE HAVE BEEN TWO PREVIOUS ETCHING INCREASES (as well as freight from CA) DURING 2012. WE ABSORBED THE FIRST AND MADE NOMINAL INCREASES ON A HANDFUL OF KITS WITH THE SECOND. PRICES ON ADVANCED RESERVATIONS ARE GUARANTEED. WE EXPECT MANY KITS TO INCREASE IN FEB-MARCH 2013.
“There will be a price increase coming, just as soon as I can shake the accounting mountain I am working on. Existing prices will apply to the orders we have on hand, but there will be little to no notice once I get new pricing calculated. We have had several supplier price increases in the past 24 months or so since I reviewed pricing last. Other pricing pressures have been mounting especially related to several recent regulatory changes. Some of these changes we are not only experiencing directly, but each of our suppliers have had similar impacts that are affecting the prices we pay them. It is a sad circumstance that government officials don’t seem to understand, but this impact is a growing factor in manufacturing life. Sorry to be the messenger.”
