Store Updated (FINALLY)!

We’ve added several new products to the PLW store. Make sure to visit, and order often and a lot! We’ve also got a few great new products on the way. Here’s a little sneak peak!

This is the Farmington station, which we’ll be making available in both O and S scales (pricing to be determined — check back often).

Also coming soon will be a Philadelphia & Reading standard-gauge boxcar in O scale. This model will come pre-painted and lettered, less trucks and couplers (pricing to be determined).
