    Good question. Seems like I saw someone asking about this, elsewhere a few months back. As I recall, at that time the answer was yes. I suppose about all you could do is call them and see if the phone answers.

    Thanks guys.
    I thought I read they were going to get a new web sight but not 100% sure if it was them .
    I got one of there HOn30 SR & RL 2-6-2 also but not sure if that is the scale I want to go with.
    I have a N scale layout but what to do a small Narrow Guage layout and have been going back an forth between Hon30 or On30.
    Anyway thanks all and if I find out I will post here.

    See that, I thought of getting it and putting a higher number since SR&RL had no loco over #30 for a what if.

    He'll respond. He got back to me about that unlettered 2-6-2 pictured in his listing.

    Yep a quick reponce,His reply was:
    "Hello,
    I'm sorry to say No, we don't have a new website. The one we had was very outdated so I took it down, not sure at this point what we are going to do. You can always call me 207-650-6685 Thanks, Matt"

    I learned yesterday from the folks at Crusader Rail Services that the gentleman who ran Train and Trooper retired. Crusader had some HOn30 Forneys left but no 2-6-2s.

    I'd forgotten all about my question.

    Late last winter, I had learned a few things about the situation. Ray Kaminski (Crusader) got a lot of the T&T HOn30 car kit inventory. But not everything. The old T&T shop still exists, closed, and was storage for some items. They had two B&SR tank car styles produced through Funaro & Camerlengo, and as of last spring there were still some available. I was able to contact Matt Sharp (T&T) and acquire a couple of those kits.

    I am not certain what else might remain. At that time, from what Matt wrote, it read like all of the other former T&T HO30 stock was gone.

    I'd love to get one. But I simply do not have that sort of money. :( I can only rarely scrape up a little money for a kit, a car, etc. If you want to know why, I can PM.
