The end of the line for Grandt Line
Grandt Line is calling it quits.
and built many kits using their detail parts. I once worked in a hobby shop and once a month we did a Grandt Line
inventory with a distributor who carried their full line in the trunk of his large sedan. Almost every scale I owned
had some Grandt parts that were usable.
I have an On3 RGS 3 truck brass Goose with a Grandt replacement drive. It runs great but one driver wheel is slightly off-center
so it 'wobbles' down the track. I was running it on a friend's large O/On3 layout when the Grandt's happened to
visit, and they told me to wirte them and they would send me a replacement geared driver. About the same time I visited
the Colorado Railroad Museum during an 'Operations' day. That year they didn't have any steam engines operational, so they
were running a Goose on their trackage. WE may not have run more than a quarter mile on their tracks, but by the end I was shaken,
not stirred. I never replaced that driver, even though it didn't shake the model as much as the real thing.
