The production of portable media, such as DVDs and Blu-ray discs is becoming more of a problem due to the increasing cost of materials combined with lack of interest from the public. Because of this, we’re going to sell through what’s left in our stock. Some titles will be available for years, as we are […]

ATSF 2-6-2 1010 – Brass Steam Prairie
This Key Imports HO scale model of ATSF 2-6-2 1010 is a work in progress. So far I haven’t done anything to it. I only have a few brass steam engines since my primary modeling interest is the 1990s.
WP F7A 913 – Enhanced Lighting and Sound

BN SD40 6309 – Memorial Model

SP GP35R 6322 – Kato Kodachrome
My HO scale SP GP35R 6322 is one of the first Kato models I ever owned. Way back when they were first introduced I bought two in Southern Pacific colors. This was one of those.

N Scale Log Cars – Custom Painted

Tyco Log Cars – HO Train Recycling
A few years ago I acquired some old Tyco train set equipment. Most of it was in poor shape and wasn’t of the greatest quality to begin with. My first instinct was to get rid of all of it. But then I thought that maybe I could recycle some of the models.
