Re: Still have one resin kit for sale

Okay, okay, relax, guys. I got an email (don’t know as I kept it) that the NEB&W had spent the spring semester moving into their new space, evidently larger than the old and NOT in a basement, but in a building in downtown Troy. The layout will be reassembled and eventually opened to the public as an attraction highlighting the historic aspects of downtown Troy and the surrounding Upstate New York/Vermont area.
I suspect that the NEB&W website probably has the story. I have not looked.

Yikes! I had not heard that the NEB&W was gone! Why? What happened? I bought lots of good stuff from them when they had a hobby shop(early 90’s). The Guides they published are very useful. I agree-someone with deep pockets will hopefully step in. They could sell off sections, buildings, equipment. There is a list of whole or sections of ‘famous’/MR project layouts. We’ve poured a lot of time on the historically accurate layout in the Washington State History Museum(PSMRE). Our hope is that it will be as ‘permanent’ as is possible in the world. Bruce Chubbs ‘Sunset Valley’ is to be -hopefully-saved. Sad to think the hobby may someday be only seen in museums. Bill Smith
