June 19, 2003...
As many of u may already know, I was in the hospital over the weekend for an emergency pacemaker insertion. Om doing OK, but cannot lift heavy things till July 1, and recovery just takes time. Your patience is very much appreciated. !!!!!
Meanwhile, there has been an onslought of deliveries from the manufacturers, and Im doing my best to get thibgs invoiced and shipped, but its just gonna take some time. Here's the plan...
1. We are now shipping Atlas 89' auto carriers, and we still have invoicing to do for some of them. It will be another week before they are all shipped. We also have a wait list , so if you're on the wait list, please stand by
2. Atlas RSD-15's and Half of the Amtrak P42's and Amfleet cars arriving next week. We will try to get invoicing done this weekend. The P42's and Amfleets will ship 1st, then the RSD-15's.
3. MTH RS-11's, and Bay window cabooses are here. Plan is send invoices for them next week, and ship the week after.
4. Shipping of daily website orders is about a week behind..just trying to stay even with things.
Thanks again for your patience.......Beth, Rachel, and Lindsey
May 1, 2023.....
Well, we finally made it back after 2 weeks in NJ. It was 90% work and 10% pizza and Wawa. We loaded 14,000 lbs of stuff on to a tractor trailer by hand. Not a whole lot of trains, just a whole lot of stuff, and a LOT of Lionel parts from pre-1985 or so. Not that im going to get into selling Lionel parts again...its was all just sitting in NJ, and we had to get it out of there. The trailer will probably get here this week, and it will take another 2-3 days to unload it.
Im alive, and we are starting sipping again now.. Thanks, everyone, for your patience.
