This segment really made my day!

Selley was originally out of Winter Park, Florida before being absorbed, thankfully, into Bowser.  They made rolling stock also.  Likewise guilty of just buying cool stuff, I have a few of their passenger cars on the shelf and I do plan to build and run them!

Too bad you did not have some of the 1950s vintage Athearn metal kits.  Thye are great stuff

Just watched this video tonight, then came across a Facebook post from Bowser saying that they have sold Selley to new owners!
