We submitted some kits to Al Westerfield for his inspection. This is what he had to say about our work:
"The new owner of Westerfield Models has submitted several kits for my inspection. The castings were excellent and all the parts, decals and instructions were present. I have no hesitation in recommending the kits. Andrew Dahm is continuing the quality you have come to expect from the Westerfield line of model railroad products."
