Is JnJ still "alive" ?

Their website is still running but you can't click on anhing (all boxes have "red x of death")... anyone know if they are still operating ?

BTW: Am I correct in my foggy memory that they produced either a SDP 40 or SDP 45 shell at one time ?

Thanks.

I got in without any problems.  Everything shows up on the site.

IIRC the site uses Java or Flash or something, and often doesn't work for me. Bit of a strange choice when the site's content is entirely static.

Does this 'product' link work for you?

http://users.dwx.com/~jnjtrains/products_%20frame.htm

In any case, no SDP shells that I see.

Just about every shell he's made has been made RTR. Probably afraid to make any more.

They seem to be silently adding stuff. I like those etched reefer details. Curious why they don't let people know they have product to sell.

I can't remember anyone ever making a SDP40 or 45 shell... I've seen kit bashes...

I miss the B&O wagontop cabooses.  I've got two, but they're committed to a museum project...  Oooh.  I better get to work on them!

I've ordered stuff from Troy on occasion and recently asked him about the Harriman core kits listed.  He's pretty responsive to email.
Can't model worth a darn, but can research like an SOB.

A fair number of their items are carried by Walthers which means that your local hobby shop can order them for you.  There are some nice etched parts, and I recently acquired the 80 foot Harriman roof for a kitbashing project.

Just ordered and received some UP E9 snow shields. Did it by email and JnJ takes Paypal.
Couldn't be easier.
