Dave:
Congratulations, and Welcome.
Based on products you have already made available (and I have some), you will do SuperScale proud!
Looking forward to your future.

Hi Folks;
With a lot of help from some awesome friends, the a majority of the parts of the Superscale business have been transferred to BLW LLC in Pennsylvania.
Could you perhaps post a web address for your business?

Hi Bill;
I don't have a web site, and the Superscale site went dormant... I am looking at getting it back on the web and its on the to do list... I will post the address when we get that sorted out.
Thanks for your interest.
Dave

Every time I see "superscale" in this context I think "Are these guys building locomotives 1.5 times full size?"

Congrats on re-starting Superscale. I'm sure you have a lot on your plate, but when you're able, I hope you start making 2.5" scale products, like Superscale's working gladhands. I have a few and they are a fabulous product. (And could use more!)

Best regards,
Mountaineer

Just wondering if your going to Train Mountain. Both or not. Like to meet you. Did you buy this outright or partnership with someone. Where are you located? Like you I bought a company that was establish but its still tough to get it up and running. People need to understand this is so time consuming and so much to get up and running. Dealing with suppliers and foundry's. Make sure your process is correct to remake as once done, Its not as easy as one thinks. Always welcome to talk and help out if needed. Marketing is so important to do right. Web site and book keeping is another issue to deal with. Wish you well and all the luck to get this company up and running.
Steve
