Aristocraft closing

Postby dmaynard » Fri Oct 04, 2013 1:04 am

This post is of interest to garden railroaders such as myself. Polk's, better known as Aristocraft, is closing. They were a leader in the large scale segment of our hobby, and they had a large market presence in that segment of our hobby. They will be missed by those of us in large scale.

That is really sad. I'm sure the politicians will merely consider it collateral damage.
