Rumoured New Ownership For Crest Electronics Products

Crest Electronics recently closed its doors, but there seems to be good news on the horizon for fans of the Train Engineer / Revolution RC system.

Some rumours are going around about someone taking over Crest Electronics products. I don’t know who is behind this new ownership yet. Some people know, but are not allowed to say anything yet.

Robby Dascotte from “RLD Hobbies” posted the following message on the myLargescale forum: “It is progress and should be available in 2 -3 months under new ownership“.

Remember these are all rumours for now. If there’s an official announcement at some point, I will of course keep you updated.
