READY MADE TRAINS, LLC President Walter M. Matuch announces retirement in 2016.

After a lifetime career on actual railroads (Jersey Central, Rahway Valley, Erie-Lackawanna, Conrail, US Navy) and in model railroading that spanned almost 50 years, I’m coming to the ‘end of the line’ says Walter M. Matuch, president of Ready Made Trains LLC. On February 24th, I will be 67 years young and will retire.

RMT, the company, will remain online, perhaps until the end of April 2016, as the remaining in-stock RMT inventory is sold on the RMT website. All existing current orders and those new orders placed online will be processed and shipped by warehouse operating staff during that time, then RMT will be done and the doors closed.

Now is the best time to complete your RMT collection says Matuch as there still some GG1s, BEEP Diesels, BEEF A-A + B unit diesels, BUDDY/RDCs, various freight/passenger cars, BEEPeople figure sets, Lighted Towers and 3-rail track/switches.

However, added online at RMT website… …starting about February 1st, will be a special ‘for sale’ listing with over 10+ years of RMT pre-production samples, product test shots, samples from other toy train manufacturers and more from the RMT archives…many are 1-of-a-kind-items. All RMT molds and toolings in the USA and China have either been repositioned or are not available for sale.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all in the hobby business who helped me over the years along with the many, many toy train enthusiasts that purchased model railroad products that I consulted on, designed or manufactured for: Hudson River Car Shops, Rail Scene, Aristo-Craft, USA Trains, K-line, Lionel, Weaver, MTH, Toy Truck Collector, Taylor Made trucks and RMT-Ready Made Trains.

And a very special thank you to my wife Susie and my wonderful family. Their encouragement and support over the years made it all much easier and fun.

All aboard!!!

Walter M. Matuch President and CEO Ready Made Trains, LLC

"...there is still something magical about a little train running around on a track."

Why Should You Choose RMT-DIRECT for your 0-27/0 gauge trains...

RMT products feature high quality but affordably priced 0-27/0 gauge trains for the toy train operator or collector.

If you remember those toy trains that held a special appeal under the Christmas tree of your not worry as RMT DIRECT also remembers.

Using many years of actual prototype railroading experience combined with 21st Century manufacturing ability will allow RMT-DIRECT to offer what many toy train hobbyists are calling the best 0-27 gauge toy trains available in today's marketplace.

RMT products features colorful paint schemes in those many railroads that cris-crossed America...with names that were a geography lesson (remember geography?) as you read the boxcars that rolled by.

Set up a toy train layout on the floor, get down close and watch those trains run by. Close your eyes and remember how it was when you were a child operating your toy trains.

The RMT brand offers a wide assortment of toy trains, tracks, buildings and accessories to share this wonderful hobby with your children, grandchildren, family and friends.

Rather than just offer 3 or 4 roadnames in a freight car...the RMT brand offers at least 20 different RRs in every car type so you can choose shortlines, regional favorites or mainline giants.

Each railroad depicted on an RMT locomotive, passenger car or freight car is a realistic model of the 'real thing'. Fully painted in each railroad's colors with logos and lettering that recreate the prototype but in model form.

We like trains and have spent many years 'on the railroad'.
