Anyone know what is going on with Riding Rail Kits? I emailed the owner and asked about his situation but the email bounced.

I have no direct knowlege, but press reports about his wife (cartoonist Lynn Johnston) indicate that the family is going through divorce at this time; and that may make business difficult for a while. . . .

I just talked to Rod at Riding Rail Kits last week. I too tried to e-mail him about so things but had better luck with a phone call. I called him Tuesday morning and got a response by Tuesday afternoon. Hope this helps.

A newbie to the board...

Part of a reply that Howard Gorin posted to a question on Riding Rails on the Live Steamers email list -
For what little it is worth, I purchased the 1.5 " Scale line.

The Mosley developed Pyle-National turbogenerator and headlight as
well as a bell that can be supplied for top or front mount.

I do not understand the meaning of what JamesCNR wrote.

Iron Pony was started by Mike and Joe Devlin on Anaheim CA. I know Mike. They sold it off to Canadian Rod Johnston, who changed the name to "Riding Rail Kits", and ran it for a while. Eventually he abandoned it and just let it die...
