Been trying to contact him for a couple of weeks and no reply. His name is Dave, right? http://www.locomotiveworksinc.com/?page_id=21

Yep, David Duhamel.
I saw this was posted the Crescent website yesterday.....
Thank you to all that have supported us over the years.
Although I am leaving the site up, I am currently not taking any new orders at this time.
I am finishing up the projects that are currently in house and will be making some changes once everything has shipped. Due to the incredibly high cost of shipping and some other contributing factors, I have decided I will be switching to kits rather than finished buildings
I will also be making new custom parts and building details for scratch builders.
Sad, I have several of his building. A true master. I have his water tank and the light is out. Weird being LED. Would like to get a replacement, I'll install. If I can get a hold of him.
I believe Dave Duhamel also generated the kits for the Frank Ellison building that Dennis Brennan has been selling. Dave also would assemble and paint these kits quite reasonably. Shipping probably was a big cost for these delicate structures. Perhaps Dennis will find someone else willing to assemble and paint his buildings. Check with him at https://brennansmodelrr.com/.
Gary, I just received my service platforms a week or so ago and they are great. Call and leave him a message. He had a nasty spell with Covid that set him back a number of weeks so I know that has had a big impact on his ability to get ahold of. He has great buildings and even in kit form will be great to get.
I am happy that he is fine. I have sent several e-mails and left several phone messages as well. I would like to purchase a roundhouse for my large MTH Premier Engines: 2 Big Boys, 1 Y6b, 1 Yellowstone, 2 Y-3's, 1 Class A and other steam engines. I am planning on purchasing a 34" fully indexed turntable within the next 30-45 days. Feedback welcomed on Ross or Millhouse Studio fully indexed turntable as well as suggestions for a minimum 5 stall roundhouse. Thanks+
Best wishes to Dave.
The only built-up building I've ever purchased was his icing platform ... so nicely done and reasonably priced.
Sad to se Dave changing to kits from finished structures. Hope he recovers quickly. Can anyone suggest a similar passenger station with platforms that Dave had previously made ?
I do my own laser cuts that I design and assemble. Assembly is very time-consuming especially if removing the surface paper, then painting and/or staining is involved. Designing a laser cut model is not easy to do as well.
Most who do models that are made from laser cutting, do kits and don't assemble because of the time and labor involved.
Dave I understand.
