What's New


We finally have a new shopping cart provider for our pre-orders!

The address for the new pre-order website is www.amhobbiesonline.com

We are adding items to the new site daily starting with Atlas items that have been announced but not yet delivered, as well as, a couple of new California Zephyr cars that Atlas "announced" at the October York Show but which haven't been formally announced yet.

Next we will be adding the Sunset Models/3rd Rail RDCs & F7's, and the Golden Gate Depot Santa Fe/Amtrak Hi-Level Passenger cars. Right after that we will be adding MTH 2015 Volume 2 items and Weaver Pre-orders.

Thank you so much for your patience and your continued orders as we created a new site dedicated to pre-orders. We've already started removing pre-orders from this website and will dedicate www.jdstrains.com to items that are in stock (or should be - i.e. backordered Atlas track items). We know our casual customers will find it less confusing to have pre-orders located in another site and we hope our regular customers don't mind having pre-orders and in stock items separated. Separating pre-order items from in stock items will enable us to offer PayPal as a payment option on both sites and will also allow us to provide real-time shipping quotes.
