Welcome, please enjoy our online showcase.

Closed for "retirement" -- Thank you!

August 12, 2016

After 17 years of producing a wide variety of On30 kits and having fun with some of the finest & friendliest modelers around, it's time for me to "retire" from this activity ... so I can dedicate my full attention to my new position on the Management Team at

Thank you all for your interest, enthusiasm and friendship over the years!  It's been an absolute delight sharing the wonderful world of On30 modeling with you.  Your modeling and layout-building efforts will continue to inspire me as I drop in to see your projects on the various forums, facebook groups and so on.

Will BVM On30 kits be available again in the future?  Well, there aren't any definite plans at the moment, and it may be best to simply take a deep breath and reflect a bit before making any such plans.  However, if someone with a dedication to producing quality products comes along with the right offer, some of these kits just may find a new home.  We shall see ...

Meanwhile, please visit for Arttista and Woodland Scenics O scale figures, a variety of O scale structures, a broad range of DCC items and a great selection of scenery products.  Your orders will be handled by some of the best in the business!  If your modeling interests include HO, N, Z or three-rail O gauge, you'll find an amazing selection at Model Train Stuff!

I remember my Dad taking me to MB Klein's Hobby Shop in Baltimore when I was a kid (many years ago) and the thrill of "discovering" how much the hobby of model railroading had to offer.  MB Klein, Inc. is the parent of and as a long-time fan of trackplans with continuous operation, I'm delighted to be back at the station ready to begin a whole new journey!

Again, thank you for your interest, enthusiasm and friendship over the years!  I'm honored now to work with an amazing group of people who not only work hard to bring a wide selection of great Model Train Stuff to the year-round modelers but also to help those just discovering thrill of model railroading.  Those folks are the future of the hobby and friends we have not yet met.

I feel that there's a great deal of modeling inspiration to be found here, especially that contributed by your fellow modelers.  For that reason, the website will remain open for some time for your enjoyment.  All production has been shut down, so I won't be able to fill any last-minute request or such.  (Sorry) 

Any "spare time" that I might find will be used to catch up on some home renovations and to enjoy some long-overdue personal modeling time.  Again, your projects will continue to inspire me, and I look forward to helping our staff carry the thrill of model railroading to new generations.

Thank you!
