Future of Superscale Locomotive

Post by JenCarey » Tue May 30, 2017 3:38 pm

Hello everyone. I wanted to give an update on Superscale Locomotive. My brother and I are in the process of signing a purchase agreement for Superscale. My dad, Barry Hauge, had been speaking often with this individual in regards to purchasing it from dad. I feel that this individual will be able to provide the high quality parts that dad did. A couple of months before dad passed we had discussed his conversations with and feeling about the ability for this individual to run Superscale the way dad would and After speaking with him I too believe as my dad did that he will continue to provide top quality Superscale products. The goal is for the new owner to be up and running in the next month or two. I look forward to seeing all my dad's loyal customers getting taken care of.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this extremely difficult time. Please keep checking the Superscale website for updates once the sale has been completed.

Glad to hear that Superscale will continue in business and be in good hands.

Once again, I'm very sorry for your loss. You dad was a great guy and a real asset to the Live Steam hobby.

Jen...Thank you for ensuring the longevity of the Superscale product line your father built. Good to know those products will live on! If you haven't done so already, hope you can take the time to visit area tracks and see how your father's "jewelry" has been put to use. There are some incredible models and model builders out in the live steam world. Carl B.

Jen: I have also been a customer, and also wish to thank you.

As you may or may not be aware, we live steamers have seen far too many of these wonderful business simply "evaporate" when the owner passes, or it gets sold to someone that fails to carry it onward. I can think of 2, right off the top of my head, where the new owner simply lost interest and won't even sell it! "POOF!" - GONE!

Thank you, Jen, you have made my day. Or night as the case may be.

I have had several very pleasant conversations with your dad and never thought that one day he would not be there. I miss him, as we all do.

This is very re-assuring news! I just got into Live Steam last year with the purchase of a newly overhauled Allen Mogul, although I have been active in the hobby for several years. I was about to make a few parts purchases when Barry passed away. Now am looking forward to seeing the line re-activated under new ownership!

Plenty of rumors, but that's about it.
