It's DEFINITELY not Fred Becker, as he has been dead for 2 years...

Does anyone know the story behind this company?  Their ad copy is intriguing...


Yes... as do others.  All in good time.

I wouldn't believe God if he was posting on the Trainorders Model RR list. An ad in a Model Train Mag, a website with a countdown to some big pomp and circumstance for some company that is gonna revolutionize the hobby........The Dapole Crap all over again.

I can think of an outfit in Boca Raton that's pretty good at that sort of thing, too.  ;D ;D ;D

ha, ha, ha...   Asarge, I agree with you...

All I meant was that the "SP Prototype Modellers" gang seems to be on the "inside track" of this new company - and look at their first products - notice very SP-centric???

So it seemed to make sense that they really know...

I really wonder if this might just be the E&C/LBF/Hubert's tooling resurfacing to jinx again.

I doubt it... the chatter on the MFCL list indicates this is going be some sweet gear, but we'll see what it brings in N...

They talk of N-scale but where is it?  Their ad only features HO.

Definitely some nice looking modern cars.  Too bad I don't model modern.

Oh, better enjoy the thread as much as you can.  When Paul sees that someone posted pix and other stuff of a new manufacturer and its not the manufacturer doing it he will can that post.

Really?   Was this posted on the forums somewhere?  As crazy as the Fred Becker legend was, he did create a buzz and I figured there would have been more mention of his passing.  At least folks saying good riddence or something.
NOTE: I'm no longer active on this forum.   If you need to contact me, use the e-mail address (or visit the website link) attached to this username.  Thanks.

Pfff. Modern stuff.
Modern?  Vert-a-Pacs were built 30 years ago...

Well, I'm sure that the term "modern" is relative. For me, anything built after the 60s is modern.

After the 60's?  The SP chip car is ~1965, I don't know the build date on the PC&F boxcars, but that UP 'automated railway' scheme was started in 1963 and didn't last too long, and the Vert-A-Pac is just out of your reach at 1970.

As all the products in the ad are HO I'm not losing any sleep over this (yet).  ;)

As we have learned in recent times, saying you are in N scale doesn't always actually mean it. :P
