Re: Intermountain shake-up?


Bill,My humble apologies.I never considered Branchline nor Bowser
distributors.Let us look at the hobby today;MDC gone,Athearn gone .While the
brand name still exists smaller hobby shops are finding it difficult to buy
in large enough quantities to satisfy the megadistributor's
minimums.Again,let me apologize .I feel that both Branchline and Bowser ,if

they are distributors,exceptions.Armand Premo---- Original Message -----

I suspect that the so called "Golden Age for model railroaders "is
and is now being replaced by the "Golden age for the distributor's".Our
in their pockets.Distributors do not produce or develop products.Armand
Beggin' to differ here Armand, but there are at least a few exceptions -
Walthers, Bowser and Branchline come to mind....

As far as where the gold goes, where do you think all the LHS's have been
buying most of their stuff all these years?
