Wow. That is sad. Glad nobody was hurt.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Just saw an article saying Woodland Scenics plant burned down today - no one injured.
This will be a huge loss to the hobby.
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Man, that really fails. How long before the profiteers on ebay start listing "RARE" bags of WS ground foam for big money?
To "call a spade a spade" is to speak honestly and directly about a topic, specifically topics that others may avoid speaking about due to their sensitivity or embarrassing nature. The Oxford English Dictionary records a more forceful variant, "to call a spade a bloody shovel", attested since 1919.

It certainly looks like their evacuation plan paid off though!

This should be a heads up to all of us to have the same for our families, especially with flammable layouts in the house.  Kind of makes me glad my garage/layout space is detached.

Really 
listings would be completely truthful if they said 'out of production'...

OMG!  Glad no one was hurt....

I would be nowhere without their subterrain product - and I know for a fact their stuff sells very well,
so I am sure they will be back on their feet soon...

Oh my; the Facebook comment from the guy at AR&M is unreal.....that's an 11 on the 1-10 scale of dumb Facebook posts... let's see, a major compeditor burns down, his employees are out on the street and the first thing out of my mouth is a smart a$$ commercial for my stuff; which will sell like hotcakes regardless if I just shut up.....hmmmm :facepalm:
