Addresses of Train Manufacturers
NOTE:  The RITS RIML includes several once-active but now defunct train-making companies;
for example, American Flyer by A.C. Gilbert.  Companies no longer doing business are cited
as GBNF (Gone But Not Forgotten).  As a courtesy to hobbyists/collectors who may want to contact
currently-active manufacturers of larger-scale trains about their R.I. products and plans, RITS
presents the following information about those who -- according the information we now have on 
file -- are active in the marketplace.
