I just wanted to post a comment that I greatly appreciate your customer service and communications.  I placed an order and you have kept me up-to-date with the latest and greatest processing and shipping information.  I never had to wonder if or when I was receiving my package.  I have found that level of service to be rare with other online stores.  Keep up the great work - you are a "model" for other online retailers to follow!  I will be sure to always check with your site first for my model railroading needs.  Thanks! - Joe

Just want to take a moment to thank you for the fantastic information on your site. I find it well laid out and easy to find the information I am looking for. I am just a beginner at the hobby and have searched the web high and low, but found your site the most informative. Thank you. Keep up the great work.

WOW! All this great information for free!!! I've been railroading for a little over a year and wish I'd found your site earlier (found you on YouTube). Keep up the great work! - Rick

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You....I just bought my grandson a train set with the intentions of the 2 of us building our little empire. I've been buying magazines and researching on line, but this is the best site I've found to answer the one million questions going through my head. I'm retired and a golfer, but I find model railroading very interesting. Hopefully over the next couple of years we will have quality time together learning and building our railroad. I have a dedicated space in the basement 23' x 11 ' and that area can be expanded if necessary. Thanks again for an excellent and informative web site. Don from Cape Cod Ma.

GREAT SITE!!! I am just starting a large n scale layout and your site will be very helpful. I haven't read thru the entire site yet, but I am sure I will. Thx. Curtis

Wow, what a terrific site you've created! It's answered all of my questions without being overly technical or simplified. Thanks! - Ed

I know you've heard this before, but I have to say, you have an amazing website. I have a bunch of old rolling stock that I just recently dusted off and am starting to get back into the hobby. I was a kid 20+ years ago since I've looked at model railroading and I cannot believe how much the hobby has changed. I've been doing lots of research in creating a realistic and technically modern railroad and this site is certainly going to be a heavily used resource. Thank you so much for your hard work in getting this together. - Colby

I came online today to look for wiring for a model railroad. I am planning an N scale coffee table railroad, and before I got too deep into it I wanted to learn about turns and wiring. Your site was the first I got to, and it will be the last. Your information is wonderful, the pictures are easy to read and understand. I have learned so much in the last half hour on your site. Thank you so much for your wonderful work. (This is not my first railway, I had an HO rail about 20 years ago that I was working on, then kids came and took up the space.) - Marion

What a great resource! I'm in the beginning stages of designing my first layout (N scale) and the information on this website is invaluable. Thanks! - Sean

Thank you, thank you! What a great site. You have managed to make sense of so much material and distill it to a clear comprehensive, meaningful presentation. I am starting on my second layout, I have learned lots in doing the first, but your site has given me more confidence to be a little more adventurous. Best wishes! - Tony (

Hello! I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate this website. EXCELLENT and VERY thoughtful of you to provide this for people like me. My wife JUST bought me my first model train (a 2-10-0 Russian decapod from the Bachmann Spectrum series). I've got the bug. Your site has already answered MANY of my questions, and I look forward to learning much more. VERY in depth. Thanks again for putting this together - finally a good USE for the internet. (We plan to put together a model railroad of the Atlantic Coast Line so we can vacation on the Carolina/Georgia/Florida coast and do some fun "research".) - Mike

best mrr newsletter and research ever

I enjoy this free service that you provide with interesting details and instructions. Not intended to compete with other magazines (like MRH), yet provides valuable and different info. I'm still getting familiar with your site and what all you have. Enjoyable. Helpful in ideas and planning.
