Greetings to all. I want to let everyone know that G Scale junction will still be operating in the same location and with the same pricing policies. I have been a customer of Charles for several years and one day made the 'mistake' of saying "let me know if you ever want to retire." Well, his reply was "I want to retire." It took a year and a half, but he finally convinced me to take over. I can tell you that I shopped there for a reason and want to keep all the positive things about it and improve it where I can. I also want to add some new products, so let me know what else we should be stocking. I am glad to see the positive feedback about the place and hope it continues. Charles will be around on a part-time and consulting basis. He has a lot of product knowledge that I need to extract! I have a lot of long-term goals for the place, but it will stay in the same location for the next 17 months. After that, the intent is to move it to a slightly more convenient location, perhaps near I-70. The new local phone number is 740-967-7300, but the 800 number remains the same. The website and e-mail will be updated in the near future. In the mean time, I am trying to assemble a list of the out-of-production items and other items in the warehouse that can be put on sale. Let us know if you need anything. I have met and/or spoken on the phone with several of the longtime customers, and want to get to know the rest. If you want to be on our e-mail list for sales, etc. Make sure we have your address. Thanks, Jim Dorenbusch, new owner of G Scale Junction.

To answer Nick's question...it's great to have a whole store full of trains...until you remember you have to pay for them all! There is also this temptation to keep taking things home, but my wife has already said "you have a warehouse for those now!" It has been good to talk to everyone who has called so far, and I have noted the merchandise suggestions. As for the best way to contact me, once we get the e-mail and web site up to speed, that will be easy for everybody. There is always the phone as well - 740-967-7300 or 800-311-9448. Thanks for the encouragement!
