Does anyone know if Len Carparelli is still painting, and repainting, model trains? He repainted my 1954 Lionel Santa Fe F-3's several years ago and did great work. I have not seen his ad in the train magazines for some time and I can not find him on the internet. I have some more trains to reprint.

He is a TCA member. If you are, too, you can find him in the Directory.

Yes I am a TCA member and I have his phone number, but I don't want to bother him if he is not longer in business. I was hoping to hear from someone who knows the 411 on him. Thanks. Mike

I have his phone # & snail mail address in the "latest" ('08) TCA Directory. If you want to contact me by e-mail at: dkuehnem@stny.rr.com, I'll give it to you. Hope this'll help. DK

Mystery solved, sort of....

I found Len's phone number in an old train magazne and I called it today. He was not in, but his recorded message said he was doing inventory this week and to call him back on Monday the 5th.  So, I assume his is still in business. 

 

I hope to speak to the actual Len next week.

 

Thanks for all your help.
