For those of you looking to repower a loco please note the NWSL is closing its doors in Aug and is right now accepting no new orders so what you may need for your repowering or drive line changes will only be found now in Hobby shops ,dealer and from outside sources.

Yes, that's gonna be a big step backwards for the hobby. I hope they change their mind and decide to sell it instead of liquidating it.

The owner states that he would be willing to sell it , but as of yet has had no offers.
This is almost the same sad thing that happened to Grandlt , but atleast someone stepped in and bought some or most of it I hope?

a friend of mine is considering buying some of the gearing tools.
What made NWSL so awesome was the amazing assortment of stuff available at one site. It's not nearly as convenient if the inventory and tooling gets sold off piecemeal, even if the purchasers sell the same products.
