I just read this on Northwest Short Line's Facebook page. They are closing at the end of August 2019.
"This is the post I don’t want to make but the time has come. I just can’t do this without Lynda. Following is the notice I sent to all the magazines.
After 60 years in business, NWSL will cease operations effective August 30th, 2019. The company will continue to take orders for in-stock products until July 1st, 2019. Closure is for personal reasons and sale of the business is not anticipated, although reasonable proposals will be considered."
I hope that someone can be found to buy the company. It would be a real problem for the hobby without Northwest Short Line's products.
