Probably not.  The last I heard from him Athearn had cut him off, for not having a "real store".  Apparently his physical store didn't qualify, for whatever reason, and Horizon decided they wouldn't sell to him anymore.  I think he was still arguing with them when he closed up shop.

So is Chuck still in business?  His website looks outdated.  I did visit his store when I was in the area for a conference.  This was in the mid 2000.  And it was a real store with good retail space so I don't know what Horizon's beef was if they are talking about that store.

Has anyone heard from him lately?  I know he was having "family issues" several months ago.

He is somewhat active on Facebook, but I haven't communicated directly with him.

And I'm not on Facebook, but it's good to know that he's still around, even if apparently not involved on model railroading.

Looks like sometime recently Athearn posted some actual pictures. So maybe Late June is looking good.
