Bill Glass was behind E&B Valley and Robin’s Rails (named for his daughter, IIRC). They were located in the Lower Hudson Valley, in the general vicinity of Poughkeepsie.
Bev-Bel was not (AFAIK) involved with Bill Glass. Separate company in New Jersey. Dick Waite, a local dealer, was friendly with the proprietors.
Front Range had their own die cutter, who was somehow connected, eventually, with Intermountain, if only that he cut the dies that IM later acquired. I spoke with him by phone once, and praised the fact that FR roofs were profiled inside and out reflecting how the panels were shaped. He remarked that it was actually easier that way and reduced the amount of material required for the parts.
