Rich Art 0 Gauge

(Escondido, California, USA)

The story of Rich Art and Dick Mayer goes right back to 1966, when Dick Mayer first got together with Art Varney. The full story was told in a six page article in Classic Toy Trains magazine, March 1997 issue.

Dick Mayer and Art Varney joined forces in 1966, as Dick was making some parts for Art. Their first joint project was an Ives Olympian engine. In 1970 Dick moved to Northern California, returning to Southern California in 1973 at which time he re-established his relationship with Art as the Rich-Art company. Dick Mayer moved to Escondido in 1975 and, in the early 1980s Dick's son joined him and they bought out Arts interest in the company.
