Rapido News 103 - with China factory closure commentary

Recommended Posts

Just been reading that. The factory closure was due to the owner retiring according to the newsletter. Good read as usual.

Gone are the generation where by children would take over their father's business - even in China it seems.

 

Surprised it could not be sold off.

This ;

 

Con-Cor owner and founder has posted a long message regarding the China factory closure providing a lot of detail about how things work in China, the model train industry, wages in China and the problems of producing trains in the western world. https://www.con-cor.com/

 

 

 

 

Was posted by "mdvle" on the Hornby Board thread on the same issue.

 

It is a VERY interesting link to another small US model Railway/road manufacturer who has been using the closed factory.  It gives a lot of interesting background and is well worth reading.

Interesting that the two most informative statements, are from self sufficient manufacturers, promoting their self sufficiency.

Hi,

Interesting that the two most informative statements, are from self sufficient manufacturers, promoting their self sufficiency.

Also quashing any danger of unhelpful 'speculation' about their products, fair enough for that alone I think.
