We hope that everyone is having a great summer. We have begun to list models from a number of new collections, and will continue to add new items into the fall model railroading season. Included in our new listings are high quality out of production brass and ready to run models in HO, S, O, and Large Scale, as well as several narrow gauge models in Sn3 and On3. Of note is a very nice collection of O Scale Diesels, almost all of which are professionally or factory painted. Both West Coast and East Coast roads are represented. We are also continuing to list a large HO Scale PRR collection, which includes both brass and ready to run rolling stock and locomotives.
You will notice a slight change in the new listings. We modified the description format to present the information for each model a little more clearly. We look forward to working with everyone in the coming months.

May has been a busy month. We have several new O Scale collections that we are beginning to list, as well as a large collection of HO Scale ready to run locomotives, rolling stock, and kits. We spent this past weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Narrow Gauge module meet in Kimberton, Pennsylvania. This is a small but enjoyable show that is in its 36th year. The narrow gauge models and modules on display were exceptional. One of the best things about this meet is what you learn from some of the best craftsmen in the hobby. Many thanks to Bruce Saylor, Ray Kaminski, and the other Mid-Atlantic folks that make this such a worthwhile show.

It was great to see everyone at the Chicago O Scale March Meet last month. As usual The Hill Family, Mike, Judy, Michael, and Melissa did a wonderful job with the show. We will be attending the Strasburg O Scale Show on April 22, 2017, and the Mid-Atlantic Narrow Gauge Guild Module Meet on May 19-20, 2017 in Kimberton, Pennsylvania. Please come by and say hello.
At the Chicago O Scale March Meet Cheryl McGarry gave a clinic entitled: "Selling Your O Scale Collection - Choosing the Best Approach". The information in the clinic is generally applicable to all scales. The presentation and the associated handout can be downloaded by clicking on the following locations:

We have added a number of new O Scale listings and continue to work on the Tom Mix collection of scratch built P:48 models. We will also be adding new HO brass models, Ready to Run models, and kits from several collections in the near future.

It has been a busy winter at ASM and we are still in the process of listing some new collections. Thank you to everyone for your continued support. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming Chicago O Scale March Meet on the weekend of 17-19 March in Lombard, IL. We will be introducing several of Tom Mix's P:48 scratch built locomotive models at the show
We have been especially encouraged with the response to our Narrow Gauge collections. For the month of March we are offering a number of our On2 scale brass locomotive and rolling models at reduced pricing. The sale prices are listed and we can offer an additional discount for multiple purchases on the sale items. Please click HERE to access our On2 listings.

Cheryl and I would
like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and a healthy and
prosperous 2017. We certainly appreciated the opportunity to work with
everyone over the past year. We have currently been busy working on
new O, HO, and Narrow Gauge collections, and we will be listing many new
models over the next month. We are very fortunate to be working with
Capt. Tom Mix (USMC-R) to market the exquisite Proto:48 scratch built
models in his collection. These models are just exceptional and
represent many years of Tom's skilled craftsmanship.

Brass Expo 2016
was the history of brass railroad models. Many of the displays at the show included significant models and artifacts that many of us have only read about. The models, artwork, and information from the Pacific Fast Mail collection were particularly enjoyable to see in person. We enjoyed meeting with both our current and new Allegheny Scale Models customers. It is always great to speak with them in person. Thank you again to Dan and BRASSTRAINS. Going forward, we hope that the show becomes an important part of our hobby, and are looking forward to Brass Expo 2017. For more information, please visit the Brass Expo Website.
