To our Blog Contributors, Followers, and OS2R Community,
We have done it. O Scale Central™ (oscalecentral.com) and the O Scale Network of websites launched on January 1, 2021. We are proud of the product and believe it provides a real service to the OS2R community. This project has gone from plan to peer-review to published project in less than 9 months. Thanks to all of the Blog posters and others who have contributed to this project. It will continue to be open to peer review and respond to the changing needs of our modeling community. I invite all of you to look at the websites and Contact Us if you have suggestions, questions, comments or concerns.
All Nation Returns!
John Wubbel announces his acquisition of the All Nation line of parts and kits. He intends to continue producing these parts under their original part numbers for the O Scale community. Product will become available through his site as the parts are cataloged and listed (https://johnwubbel.com/HobbyShopWindow.html). Check back for updates. Contact John Wubbel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Passing of Mike Crandall
We are sorry to report the passing of Mike Crandall. Mike was an extraordinary modeler in O Scale. He was also an important member of the Stamford Model Railroad Club. He surely will be missed in the O Scale Community.
