Electrical "Odds-n-Ends" for Model Railroading Enthusiasts
November 1, 2012
I’m happy to announce that Scott’s Odds-n-Ends, Inc. is now part of Train Electrics, LLC. The new owners will be operating out of Travers City, MI and offering the same products and support you’re familiar with as well as bringing back some pervious items and adding new products, too. I have enjoyed very much participating in this wonderful hobby and working with many terrific people, but feel the Train Electrics will have the time, energy and inspiration to take it to the next level.

December 11, 2012 - Updated the phone number and address to reflect that of the new company, Train Electrics, Inc.
November 2011 - We have discontinued the rest of our incandescent lamps (except Magic Lamps, of course!). We still have some inventory so I plan to send out a broadcast email from time to time to see if there is some interest on select variations.
By popular demand (thank you!) we have brought back the Magic Lamp! The cool, simple product improves DCS signal strength by adding inductance to the circuit. And it's back!
Also unfortunately we had to increase prices on our Circuit Breaker Line. We weren't paying attention to price increases to us and discovered - hey, we're not making any money on circuit breakers anymore! So we had to go up.
Lastly, we have sold out of all our hook-up wire, including the two conductor and multi conductor products.

May '07 - Because of the recent changes in postal rates specifically in regards to rates being determine by package size as well as weight, it was necessary to increase our shipping and handling charges. Note this is the first increase in s&h since we started business in 2001. Our intent is not to make money of s&h, just to break even.
Also, as everyone is probably aware, the pricing and availability of metals in a world market is very volatile these days. Specifically in regards to copper, we’ve absorbed several increase to date on wire. Note we had to raise our wire prices and we probably will see more changes in the not too distant future.
