Din't know, however this is their web site:

http://www.geocities.com/modelengineeringworks/index.html

I tried to sell my two cents worth, but no one would give me a plug nickel for it.

Sorry, but I just tried that link and got, "Sorry, the GeoCities web site you were trying to reach is no longer available."  And I am sorry.  I wanted to check the availability of code 40 flex track or rail.

Chuck, since this site is about 1:1 real trains in the classic time period, you might be better off at the Model Railroader site.

I use to build HO but the durn things kept getting smaller and smaller.

Agreed, Art, but I arrived here via a (Bing) search of the web for Model Engineering Works.  I figured that while I was here, I'd try the link that DSchmitt posted and got the negative results mentioned above.

Good news...sort of Wink

Page 81 of the December, 2010 Model Railroader has an ad for rail and Flex-Trak from MicroEngineering Company.  Based on their product line, I'm guessing that this is a descendant of the Model Engineering Works that we were looking for.  Was there a change of ownership that we missed?

MEW is my dad's business. He no longer accepts orders via phone. He can be reached at bhigg50@yahoo.com and sells a lot of parts on Ebay. I'm pretty sure his screen name is ModelEngineeringWorks, but I could be wrong. Hope this info is helpful! :)
