Testimonials
"Well, you did it - I couldn't be more pleased with your product, Dave, and your assistance, Steve! Your claims of "museum quality" stand solid and beautiful!
From headlight to the brass portion of the whistle, bell, and the safety pops; to wheel striping and wonderfully- and delicately-done main rods (wow!);
from incredibly-done cab detail (how did you get in that tiny cab to do all this!) to wonderful decaling everywhere; from tender chains to tender-light lens and tender-rear,
absolutely delightful"

Frank - Arizona, USA

"Hey guys I just got my brass unit in the mail today, model looks beautiful.
Hats off to your painter that's exactly what I wanted. Thanks again."

Mike

"Received the 4 SP locomototives on Saturday 14 Feb. in great condition.
The work on the locomotives is excellent. The attention to detail and skill is appreciated."

Tom - Austin, Texas USA

"The locomotive is even nicer than I imagined. I'm extremely happy and very proud of it, thanks to you and Dave Browning."
Dave - Calgary, Alberta

"Please pass on my regards & complements to Dave. That Russian blue is spectacular.
Bernie - Calgary, Alberta

"I just received the painted models today! They are wonderful. Please tell Dave Browning I said he is THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I could not be happier about the work. Dave has several more engines of mine now to paint and I will be sending more!"

Bob - Pennsylvannia, USA

Just received the L-2a - and thanks to Dave for another beauty! That graphite-paint color is absolutely great, as well as of course the incredible detail he brings out, like on the number and manufacturer's plates and inside the cab, and the care exercised all over to ensure accuracy - and he found the L-2a cab numbers(!!!) - wow!!
Please thank him for bringing a level of quality to our collection that is difficult to describe and totally satisfying! I think I'm very lucky having been exposed to, and to be modeling a railroad with such beautifully designed equipment; I am equally lucky to have found someone to beautifully replicate that in HO - thank you, Dave!

Frank - USA
