From Catalog #9, 1984:
- Nick Edwards, Eastern Representative
- Nick became involved with Railroad Supply back in 1970 when he sopped in to inquire about building a CP-173, after seeing live steam in operation at the Pioneer Valley Live Steamers and catching the live-steam bug. As a part of the CP-173 building process, Nick became more involved with Railroad Supply and evnetually became a partner in the company, his locomotive taking a back seat to serving as a Railroad Supply Director, Eastern Representative, and stocking wheels and rail supplies. In addition to his involvement with Railroad Supply and working as a management consultant with the consultant firm of Rath & Strong, Inc., Nick has undertaken construction of a 7-1/4 & 7-1/2 inch dual gauge railroad around his New Hampshire home.
