Re: History of Bev-Bel
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Dave, good summary. :-)
Bev-Bel also decorated Walthers, Train-Miniature and Model Die Casting cars,
and offered custom decorated locomotives and passenger cars as well. I always
thought they were loosely connected to Bill Glass (Robin's Rails) too, but
perhaps not. At one time (1970's to 1990's) there were quite a few different
vendors offering custom painted cars. I think the only ones left (like 5th Ave)
are using Accurail kits.
Bev-Bel was a hobby distributor in Cresskill, N.J. that was best known for its custom decorating of Athearn and other rolling stock. They did a really nice job.
