Octopus III back in stock - we got the parts!
International shortage of electronic parts is impacting us severely - please be patient.
Note: Australia and New Zealand have limited shipping due to lack of cargo capacity and must go Priority Express - get together with your friends and split shipping?
Duncan in remission - thanks to modern medicine!

Duncan just found out that he has stage IV lung cancer (no he never smoked) and is retiring immediately to spend time building his layout. His cancer is in remission! The rest of the family are going to still make Frog Juicers; Mono, Dual, Hex; Circuit Breakers and DCC Boosters. All other products are discontinued. Between Duncan leaving and the parts shortage it is too much to keep them going.
More parts out of stock - simply cannot buy the parts and the ditributor doesn't know when more will arrive! This is an unprecendented shortage. But if we don't have the parts we can't make it! Singlets, SwitchWrights, Micro Singlet, Turtle, Servo reversers, No Buzz, Fascia controller Reverser all out of stock.
We are very sad to annouce the passing of our wonderful and valued employee Jack Eiermann due to COVID19. If you ordered something from us you can be sure he had hand in making and shipping it. Jack was with us for 12 years and we considered him a member of the family. Here is a link to his obituary.
COVID-19 Issues - We are open and shipping during this emergency. We have had to suspend production of several items due to lack of manpower including assembled swith machines. Because of stay at home orders in California the crew are working at different locations which slows things down. Stay safe and thank you for supporting us in this time!
Tam Valley Depot was established in 2008 by Duncan McRee who has been building model railroads since he was 14. Duncan decided to share the boards and controllers he originally designed for his own use. All boards are hand-built in San Diego, CA by Frank, Jack and Kevin with you, the model railroader, in mind. We appreciate your support.
