We are a classic mom-and-pop business... literally... and do not yet have a formal catalog.  While all of the items listed here are available in the store, this page is used to showcase some of the products that we really like... and our customers really like too.

SBS I-Shank and Pin-Shank Drawbars

We offer lots of other hard-to-find tools too.

We offer Kapton tape which is a popular choice of tape for use in decoder installations and insulating all things electrical.

M.E. Taylor Conductive Products

This is one of the most useful products we have found in the last 30 years. 

Conductive grease is like pixie dust for locomotives that stall.

Ever needed a completely hidden wire?

Try conductive paint.  You can make a conductive path anywhere you can apply a stripe of paint.

Other Stuff

We offer CRC 2-26 for track and motor cleaning.
We offer our own track cleaning block.  It is a product designed for cleaning electric motor commutators.  It is less abrasive than the other similar product offered to modelers today.
