San Juan Model Co. Acquires New Companies

Well you heard the rumors! Bob Stears and Doug Junda from The Leadville Shops have acquired and merged San Juan Car Co., Grandt Line Products, San Juan Decals, American Limited Models and The Leadville Shops. Going forward, all these fine companies will be under the San Juan Model Co. banner. This represents a decisive leap forward for all of the above named companies and our hobby in general.

The extensive line of high-quality screen printed water slide decals produced in house by San Juan Decals will be augmented by the dozens of decal sets offered by The Leadville Shops. This growing catalog of decals will also be available directly from the San Juan Model Co. web site. In addition, San Juan Decals will continue to offer custom design and screen printing of the highest quality water slide decals. American Limited Models will continue to offer high quality imported HO scale RTR models as well as other new RTR models in other scales.

The existing line of Leadville Shops laser cut wood kits, brass castings, and etched components will be restructured during the migration of all the facilities to Denver. We have some exciting new products coming down the pipeline. Join our newsletter to stay tuned.

These are exciting times for us and the hobby! We look forward to continuing the tradition of manufacturing excellent model train products merging the best available technologies that will exceed expectations. Thank you for your patience as we finish this herculean effort to centralize so many different businesses. Please join our email list to stay posted on new product launches and news.

    Glad to see these great products continue to be available, especially since I am just starting my 30’ x 31’ On3 RGS/DRGW inspired layout!
