> In light of the recent news of a factory closure in China, I can report
> that this does not affect the delivery dates for Rapido and Scale Trains
> products. As Nigel mentioned in a previous mailing, this closure will
> affect the delivery dates of Bowser products. In due time I will call Lee
> English at Bowser to get an update and to let him know that he has our
> support and well wishes for a quick recovery.
> As a side note, this topic has really stirred the pot if you read any
> model railroad forums or follow the manufacturers on Facebook. Many folks
> are expressing that the reason for this closure is due to the tariff war
> which has brought up political posts on forums and Facebook. Also, many
> folks are clamoring about bringing production back to the United States.
> This has also produced fiery commentary on the forums and Facebook. I hope
> that these topics will not spill over onto this message board as it will
> only create division. Therefore, let’s root for the affected manufacturers
> to make a speedy comeback as we all know that competition is good for the
> market and the modeler.
