Supposedly there is a new company being formed by the owners of The Leadville Shops in Colorado out of the merger of several different lines of products, including Grandt Line, under the name of San Juan Model Company. However, I haven't seen anything like a web site yet. They are supposed to have a booth at the NG convention in Minneapolis in early September.

I think the new owner may be Doug Junda, current owner of some other product lines, and, as far as I know, a pretty decent guy. He lives in Colorado. Maybe he has partners. If not, the guys he hangs out with are very good modelers and at least should provide decent counsel. I think another (former) hobby business owner from Colorado reported that news to me. I hope I remembered everything correctly but I no longer take responsibility for anything I may think, imagine, or remember. Serious forum members should confirm my ramblings with accurate research. -- Russ

As I understand, the new owners of Precision Scale will also be up and running shortly.  If so it will be good news for all of us.

Not so sure about the serious part but the new owners are Bob Stears and Doug Junda. I've heard nothing but good things about them ...

I know both. Years ago Doug bought Design Tech from Doug Heitkamp as his entrée to the model railroad biz. Bob Stears is a meticulous researcher and excellent modeler specializing in DSP&P and C&S. I've published some of his stuff and it's first rate. Stears is a doctor in real life. I would trust them to run a first rate business. -- Russ

"Greetings All! Just a note to say that things here are still moving along while Doug and Bob hammer away at the Grandt and San Juan acquisition!"

That's a note today from the Leadville Shops on Facebook and yes, they will be at the NNGC.
