    After a lifetime career on actual railroads (Jersey Central, Rahway Valley, Erie-Lackawanna, Conrail, US Navy) and in model railroading that spanned almost 50 years, I’m coming to the ‘end of the line’ says Walter M. Matuch, president of Ready Made Trains LLC. On February 24th, I will be 67 years young and will retire to fully enjoy my family and finally complete my model railroad! RMT, the company, will remain online, perhaps until the end of April 2016, as the remaining in-stock RMT inventory is sold on the RMT website. You can order online right now 24/7 and all current orders and new orders placed online will be processed and shipped by warehouse operating staff during that time, then RMT will be done and the doors closed.

    I've seen pictures of their offerings. Very whimsical. I'd not mind having a few items. Just need a bunch of money.... Any chance someone will pick up the line?

    Well, discussing that on another forum. Just closing the doors and it's done. Really surprised no buyers. If he's just closing, give it away so someone can continue the line.
    We have known this was coming.....just waiting for the official announcement.

    If it just goes away, that's sad. Not sure why someone would do that, unless there's a monetary advantage (taxes) somehow.
