It seems their website does not work. Has something happened to them?

Although I am not a facebook user they seem to have a presence there...

Their website does not work for me. Perhaps it is being updated?

I clicked on the website link and got the same "having trouble finding" message.  But that message said try again, so I did, and this time it connected.

At the bottom of the home page it says updated 09/26/2018.

Must be a problem at my end of the wire. I still can not connect.

Cheers, Ed

I suspect that Sylvan's web hosting has extremely limited bandwidth.  Near the beginning of the month the site seems to work, but toward the end it doesn't.  After any product announcement it becomes unavailable very quickly regardless of the date.

From what I ran into at one point Sylvan had a different website address. If you went from the NMRA links that one is the old website. That is a dead link. Jim

Maybe their site was overwhelmed with hits after that excellent article by Mont Switzer in the July MR about building their kit for the GMC cab-over-engine semi-tractor.   He sure made their kit look great.
