Weaver Models Closing
It was announced that Weaver Models is closing June 29, 2015. The owner is retiring and was unable to find a buyer for the business. This is a huge loss to the O scale community and a big loss for the Model Railroading community in general. Weaver Models started making hopper cars for the two rail O market and expanded into 3 rail. They made many affordable and reliable locomotives which are the mainstay of many O Scale layouts. The average model railroader probably knows of Weaver Models through their Scalecoat Paint line which was an affordable and quality paint sold good size bottles at reasonable prices. Our thanks to Weaver for 50 years of service to the hobby.
