Just wanted to let everyone know, that as a small internet only company, whos only shipping staff is me right now... I can still ship things out from here.

Paso Robles is relatively small, mostly a wine country/tourist town full of tasting rooms, hotels, and restaurants.   All of that is shut down, but the rest of the town is not too off from normal.  You can buy toilet paper and eggs here.   Fedex, the post office, the banks, etc., are all open.   

in a town of about 30,000 ppl, we've only have 25 ppl test positive so far. No hospitalizations, no deaths so far.   I think the dry desert air helps, but thats just me.  I hate humidity.  That's why I live on the edge of a desert.

FYI....

MTH, afaik, is shud down at their HQ due to Governor's orders for all non-essential companies to be shut down. Some employees are working from home, is my understanding.

ATLAS was having a few ppl in the shipping staff working, and office ppl coming in once or twice a week...but with North Jersey forecast to get slammed with the virus here shortly, that may have changed.   I'll call them tmro AM and see whats up, and update here

LIONEL...IDK.....We just got the NS 21' excursion cars here on monday. But maybe thats going to be it for a while.. IDK.

China.....IDK either.     IDK if anyone really knows whats going on, as it changes day to day.

Me...no symptoms.  washing my hands a lot.  getting sleep, which i dont usually have time for.   I put more MTH engines up on he web today, and worked on orders. about 14 orders behind right now, but hoping to be caught up soon.   Had my 1st Zoom meeting yesterday. It worked out pretty well.

Thanks again to all our customers.  We really appreciate the business..

and stay safe out there.

Hi Beth, glad to hear you're doing fine and still in good health, thanks for the update.  Here in the armpit of Texas (El Paso) we have a population I believe (it keeps growing every day because of all the ones from Mexico that keep coming up but not returning) of about 850,000 and we only have 49 cases and 1 or 2 deaths.  What is scary, I found out last night that 3 blocks away from my home a woman tested positive for the virus and was staying at home.  That is too close for comfort.

Would you mind posting the web site link, I thought I had it bookmarked but do not see it.

Stay safe and healthy and have a wonderful weekend.

High Beth,

I received the Atlas steel reefers earlier this week.  Thanks.  These early paint scheme ART are hard to find.

I saw that my Weaver H30 was shipped, which was pretty fast.  If you find any more of the Tuscan ones let me know.  I wonder when the pre-orders will get here?  Miss you at York, but I understand why.  Coming from California must have cost a lot.

Stay well and stay safe.

Somebody lay a guilt trip on me about since I am an 'essential employee' and still working, I need to support the US economy by buying an engine. Yeah that sentence works until you get to the predicate.

Any opinions on Atlas three rail TMCC SW-9? (edit to add three rail).

If you have TMCC and can find an ATLAS O locomotive you like, buy it, they are rare.

We have a few Atlas 3 rail SW's, here, and a few Lionel ones also...

Just be careful to stay away from the really early Atlas SW's. (6101 thru 6107)  No TMCC in those and the reverse units dont work.   Some ppl were converting them over to TMCC, but IDK if anyones doing it anymore.

Beth, Do you have any more of these early paint scheme ART cars.  Thanks,  Pat B.

One of the better switchers, IMO.  I have several older SW's, none with the newer ERR drive system.
