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. Bill Meredith of TLS will continue to provide custom building and design services and will continue the laser cut wood kit product line under the name Leadville Designs. These kits will have the same high quality that you have come to expect from TLS.
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.
