NorthWest Short Line has been providing the widest selection of high quality model railroad upgrade and repair products since 1959. The company was founded by Fred and Sheryl Martin in Seattle, initially importing brass locomotives but later moving into the lines you see in our catalog today. In 2008 the company was purchased by Dave and Lynda Rygmyr and relocated to Hamilton, Montana.  

NWSL is, at heart, a machine shop; most of what we offer is made, assembled and packaged within our own shops.
