New England Brownstone is a small operation that has been in business since 2006 and was started by Russell Greene after the demand for his stonework was realized. And that was almost by accident. While helping with a cross promotional campaign for another product that Mr. Greene was involved in called the MOUSEPAW , Russell decided to sell some Cut Stone Strips that he was using for an abutment he had been building. The Strips were an instant success and it wasn’t long before he was getting requests for other items thus more products were added to the eBay listings under NEBS. As more examples of castings became available, so did the demand.
New England Brownstone strives to provide the best accurately modeled dressed and semi dressed stone replicas for the Model Railroading community. We believe we have duplicated to scale the prototype stonework to a degree that far exceeds any that was commercially available up to this time. We will continue to develop new items to keep model railroaders happy for years to come and welcome any and all input from our customers.
Nebrownstone uses high quality vacuum mixing equipment to ensure that our castings are near bubble free. This may not have much of a bearing if one uses the old “Three Foot Rule” , but since the advent of the Digital camera and the ability to zoom in with the roll of the mouse wheel, once obscure details begin show up quite un-expectantly. This can mean the make or break of a quality close-up shot of that prize loco stopping at the station. Especially if there are scale bowling ball sized holes in the retaining wall or bridge abutment that happens to be in the background.
We at NEBS want to make sure that this will never happen to you our customer and we want you to be assured that you will receive the best quality model stonework available. We know you will be pleased with the crisp, accurate and bubble free detail that is present in all of our Hydrocal castings.
