Question by ladybug: Does anyone know the new location for Berkshire Trains in Lexington KY?
Answer by postal p new
We have our new location in site. Hurricane Sandy fouled up the move. As soon as the lease is signed I will post the new address. Stay tuned.
And for those looking for Thomas Wooden Railway, there is none left. Tomy has sold out for this year and so have we. Hasbro will start production in January 2013.
Thanks, David Stephanski
We are moving

We still service MTH and Lionel model trains. We have a store full of consignment items ready to be displayed.
The Nickel Plates 2-8-4 Berkshires belonged to one of steams finest family trees. The first 2-8-4, Lima Locomotive Works A-1, inaugurated the superpower era in 1925. A four-wheel trailing truck allowed the A-1 to have a larger firebox and boiler, producing a combination of power and speed never seen before in a steam locomotive. Initially tested on the Boston and Albany Railroad, the new wheel arrangement was dubbed the Berkshire after the mountain range it conquered on the B&A. New for 2010, the Van Sweringen Berks join the MTH lineup. The Nickel Plate version is modeled as it appeared in the 1950s, sporting illuminated number boards and a Mars light added above the headlight. While these are not the first HO models of these iconic steamers, we believe they are surely the best, with superb detailing, die cast construction for great pulling power, synchronized puffing smoke, steady speeds down to three scale miles per hour, and great sounds that include the actual bell and whistle from restored No. 765.
