Folks, we’ve had a late change-of-venue. We’ve had to move the show to the Salem Community Center – Centerplex facility. This is a great facility, so rest assured we’ll be in a clean and comfortable space. This last minute change has necessitated a few changes to our schedule, so please visit the event page for more information.
Berrett Hill Trains of Sykesville, MD, manufacturer of the Touch Toggle line of model railroad turnout controls, along with The On30 Guy and The Peterboro Railroad, are pleased to announce the acquisition of the Light Iron Turnout Company (LITco).
Founded in 2005 by Gary Kohler, Kevin Kuzman, and Jim Weinschenker, LITco manufactures a wide range of high-quality turnouts for narrow gauge modelers in a variety of scales. LITco turnouts are proudly made by hand in America, and the new LITco will continue that tradition, employing Berrett Hill’s proven large-volume distributed-manufacturing process to ensure that LITco’s products continue to be of the highest quality available.
Great news! We’ve got all the arrangements made for the 26th Annual Midwest Narrow Gauge Show! This year, we’re moving to The Timberlanes Complex in Salem, Ohio. The venue is completely renovated, and offers us plenty of space, a great, affordable restaurant on site, as well as a limited number of rooms right within the complex.
