I have not experienced those issues in my limited dealings with them.

NorthWest Short Line is pleased to announce that the entire line has been acquired by an NWSL employee, effective September 3rd, 2019. All existing back orders will be filled, and NWSL will be open to new orders as soon as the new websites are rolled out; the primary website nwsl.com will carry forward as the primary contact point. The line is expected to carry forward largely unchanged although the company will no longer offer phone support.

Good news all round.

Remember...
David Rygmyr was the SECOND owner of NWSL... it was founded and run by Fred Martin in Seattle for several decades. David bought NWSL in 2008... and moved the production to Montana.

The loss of Lynda Rygmyr, who passed recently is tragic; She was the epitome of friendly service at the far end of a phone call or eMail message.

It is good to hear that an NWSL employee will be at the helm... this provides some much-needed continuity.
