O Scale CHB Machine Shop Machinery Back In Stock

When C.H.B. Models originally released this series in the early 1990's it set a new standard for O Scale: no debate. The re-release of this series continues the high standard that Charlie Brommer achieved. Just wait until you see these beauties, you'll swear they actually run! These kits are very intensive to produce and are available in very limited quantities, for a limited time.

HO Scale railroad camp 15th Anniversary Edition

It is hard for me to imagine that railroad camp is celebrating its Fifteenth Anniversary on August 2, 2017. It's only appropriate to throw a little party with a release of a very limited number of Anniversary Edition kits!

O Scale O'Neills Fabrication Parts One and Two

The eagerly awaited Part Two is now shipping and I am so pleased with the way everything turned out. There is way too much detail to even begin to describe! I don't just mean quantity (although there is A LOT there) I also am excited for you to see the level of detail and the quality. So many new castings and ideas. The details are very thoughtful with lots of research into the way the detail are arranged, colored, and weathered. Prototypical, authentic and logical placement.

HO Scale Brass & Iron Foundry

I am putting the finishing touches on the pilot model with a release date around the beginning of October. The next update will include pictures and ordering information for those who reserved this kit! With the help of Brian Marriott, this kit is a very accurate representation of a working foundry from the early twentieth century. Brian patiently worked with me and my craftsman kit design. The Brass and Iron Foundry is a six structure diorama featuring a medium stone foundry, (just wait till you see the stone carvings!) pattern and work shop, office, and a wonderful scene anchored by an annealing shed and oven. This area tempered sheet metal turning it into springs for auto’s and trucks. This is the Spring Works and is so incredibly cool! I can't wait for you to see it.

A note about the SWNEWS! banner logo at the top of this page.  Up until about mid-2004 I used to mail out (you know, stamps, postal service kind of mail) green paper SierraWest newsletters to announce new kits and products. As the Internet grew in popularity I discontinued these mailings. I am sure many of my longtime customers not only remember these newsletters but still have them somewhere. The oldest one's were highly sought after and could be found for sale at shows back in the day. Anyhow, the masthead logo on those green newsletters was the same as the banner at the top of this page. It is the exact computer file from those days reformatted and used here. I thought that was a really neat story to share with you.
