For those who may not have heard, Eric, of Miniatures by Eric, has shutdown his N scale traction line. He is keeping in production the NTP2 Traditional poles that so many N scale traction lovers cannot live without. His shells are sure to be fast movers on eBay, now that they are collector's items.
My first trolley shell other than a Bachmann was one of Eric's generic interurban shells, and it is still one of my favorites. There were quite a few of Eric's shells I would have like to own, but did not get the chance to pick them up. A lot of the kits/ shell/ parts that our niche lives on are taken for granted until they are gone, and are only seen at swap meets and eBay, etc. We need to support the vendors that feed our 600v/ 1200v, etc passions and reward them for taking a chance and making their products available.
Thank again Eric for your wonderful models.
