Anyone used these guys recently? Were they at York last week? Pros or Cons of their work/price?

 

I did a search on here but the most recent subject was from summer 2012 wanting website address or phone number.

 

I picked up a Pecos River Brass Hudson at York last week and want to have it upgraded. It's a conventional engine with sound, but I would like to do an all out upgrade on it, since I got it for a good price. Wish I woulda known they were in PA so I didn't have to ship it back to PA if they'll even work on it. A lot of people don't want to mess with brass engines.

I thought I saw them.  They're typically in the orange hall by the big garage door that faces the brown hall that is usually open for people to walk through.

I thought I saw a sign, but not sure because I didn't know who they were or what they did until I got home and started doing some research on upgrades.

Laidoffsick,

David is correct. They were there in their usual spot. If you contact them, Jeff should be able to give you a price and schedule you in. I have a Reading G3 4-6-2 by SGL that I bought from them back in 2010. I love the locomotive and plan on sending another locomotive to him(possibly next year).

I dropped of an engine with Jeff at York for a PS2 upgrade.  It's the MTH Millennium GG-1.  Pre PS-1.   I has emailed him and he gave me a price.  At York he then gave me as estimate of completion around Christmas.  When I get it back I'll post a report.

Jeff has done several PS-2 upgrades for me with EXCELLENT results.  I highly recommend him for MTH upgrades.

 

Happy railroading,

Thanks guys, I must have walked by his booth 50 times at least, and didn't even know it. Sucks too because I had to carry that engine with me on the plane, dragging it around all the airports, through security etc etc. I coulda just left it with him.

I never got around to the PS-2 upgrade for my K-Line hudson yet, but JDS did upgrade my O-27 Polar express engine. They installed a smoke unit, cab lighting, engineer and fireman, green marker LED's and a LED head lamp. They made my little toy engine look like something special.

If you search Polar Express upgrade, posted by GG1 man on 02/25/2012 you will see a short vedio of their work.

I would say that they do very good work at a resonable price.

Jeffrey has done two really great jobs for me and I have been very pleased with what he's done.

 

He was at york, in the Orange Hall.

 

You can check out one of them here : http://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/t...t-from-gerry-morlitz

 

The other one is also a custom paint job, with upgraded steam and lighting.

 

His e-mail is jeffrey@jdslimitedproductions.com. I will certainly have him do more for me. IMO, highly recommended.
