Question So has anyone taken over the Crest Product line yet?

Since I had seen posts about Crest going out of business and someone was supposedly going to take it on and continue it, just wondering did that ever happen?

So has anyone taken it on and continuing the line or has it just gone away forever, like so many other companies that have gone bust?

It is progress and should be available in 2 -3 months under new ownership.

2-3 months? I've worked for companies that got bought out{went out of business and someone bought them or they were just bought out outright} and those changeovers were over in less than 2 weeks in the majority of those cases! The longest I ever saw was about 5-6 weeks, and these were much larger companies than what I thought Crest was So this seems like a very long time for what I thought was a very small company.

Wonder why this is going to take so long to get changed over?

Well, the fact that it is manufactured in another country might have something to do with it.

Also, it's not the size of the company, it's the complexity of the transaction.

Also, whoever is funding it, it might be a "big company" to them, in terms of the investment.

In the latest issue of Garden Railways magazine, Locolinc has announced the introduction of a new 2.4 GHz R/C system.
Could there be a connection?
No information at the Locolinc website yet.

I can't believe that Locolinc has the cash to do much of anything, but perhaps they do.

Yes, Robbie is correct. Revolution is returning. Navin asked me to not to disclose the owner until they formally announce.

The good news is that it sounds certain, and having Navin involved makes sense.
