Berrett Hill Trains, The On30 Guy, and The Peterboro Railroad Acquire LITco

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.
