Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat as you are. Thoughts and prayers....

RR Logo.pdf

Couple quick words regarding this past summer and the future of Reese Rails.

First I want to thank everyone that have used my rails as part of their restorations or shop jobs. It has been truly humbling to know that my rails are going into projects across the world. A little over 10 years ago I stumbled into this hobby business when I made myself 2 sets of rails for a TAF swap I was working on. The second set was as "just in case" set that I ended up not needing and sold on RGP for $20. Between then and now I have made over 200 sets of rails and have shipped to 7 different countries and over 40 of the 50 states in the US.

Over the last year and a half there was a large uptick in the number of rails being ordered. The amount of work was great but as a one man production team I really started to get burned out. This past December my grandmother passed away which was began a difficult time for me and this hobby as I was putting more and more time into making rails but was also being pulled by familial obligations, this added to my burnout.

As some of you know my father had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer last year and had been battling the disease for a while. As the summer set in so did the disease and his struggle took a turn for the worse and he passed away this summer. During the last months of his life I have had a hard time keeping up with Reese Rails and decided to shut down for the foreseeable future. Avoiding Pinside was a simple way to avoid the responsibility I have taken on with this "business" but it was absolutely necessary to take care of the things that mean the most to me.

So, here we are.

I am slowly starting to get back into the swing and am trying to catch up with all outstanding orders. I have had people reach out to me recently that have had rails ordered prior to summer and I am working to fulfill those orders as quickly as possible. Over the last month I have made about 30 sets of rails and am finally getting out of the weeds.

If you had reached out about a set of rails over the summer and are still interested please email me at taylorva72@gmail.com using ReeseRails in the subject line and I will do my best to accommodate you as quickly as possible.

Thanks again for the years of work and allowing my rails to be a part of your hobby.

-Taylor Reese

If I can find you a sample of this funhouse backboard, would you be willing to make me a new one?

#463 2 years ago

Sorry about your dad
don't rush back, it will burn you out even quicker

#464 2 years ago

Taylor, I trust you’re hanging in there. Understand what you’ve been and still dealing with. Thank you for all your support here. As always, very happy with your rails. Just put them on my own whirlwind.

#465 2 years ago

Sorry to hear about your dad. When you are ready for more orders I’d be looking for rails for LOTR and TSPP.

It has been a busy fall/winter. I have material to make another 9 sets and will be doing my best to contact people in the order they have contacted me. Thanks.

And not that anyone gives a shit but here are some pics of the kitchen renovation I finished the Saturday before Christmas.

#468 1 year ago

Wow Medusa rails look great. And kitchen work is a huge amount of work. Love the clean white look.

#469 1 year ago

Both the Medusa rails and kitchen remodel look great.
I personally love subjecting people to things they probably don’t give a shit about around here

#470 1 year ago

Both looks like you did great job. Sent you pm and email for some rails.

#471 1 year ago

good to see you again
kitchen looks nice

#472 1 year ago

The kitchen in that purple colour you did my WhoDunnit rails would look awesome too
Great to see you back in the swing of things, keep up the great work mate

I did a search - do Elvira and the Party Monsters rails exist?

#474 1 year ago

Well I thought I was back, but have been down with some crud for the last week, really kicked my as.

Quoted from alexmogil:

They do, I don't think I've done them though. I can put out some feelers for a used set if you are interested.

Put a feeler out for a guns n roses set as well please.

Rails milled and marked. Next Up is drilling and sanding.

I would like a set for Elvira as well. Pf swap in March. If you don’t locate a used set by mid Feb I’ll see about pulling mine off and sending them out for template and new set

I’m looking but have yet to find a set.

#479 1 year ago

Thank you Taylor. Your work and rails are awesome. You actually made some lower cabinet battery extenders which I love. Do you still make these too?

#480 1 year ago

dmacy Thanks man, appreciate that.

I haven’t done the holders in a while. With NVRAM and another person starting to make them my orders dwindled and I started to just focus on the playfield rails.

#481 1 year ago

Just been hit by a huge order of solid state rails that are going to keep me busy for the next couple of weeks. On top of that I added Meteor and Seawitch to the template library which I will be updating soon.

Pic is current batch status. All rails have been milled drilled and sanded and now await finish.F70996AB-3155-4D5F-94E3-40B4ECC94D5C (resized).jpeg

#482 1 year ago

This is an up to date list of the rails I have in my shop to use as templates for new rails.

#483 1 year ago

I am interested in a set of rails for Xenon, Fathom and Eight Ball Deluxe.

#484 1 year ago

Dyeing up some rails for BG, FH and Medusa.

Also started rails for Centaur, WH2O, Seawitch, TZ and Scared Stiff.

#485 1 year ago

Centaur, WH2O, Scared Stiff, Seawitch and Twilight Zone are ready for finish. Glad I was able to get these knocked out so I can finish them with the most recent batch I've been working on.

Taylor, interested in getting MotorDome added to that list?
Mine are in good shape but selling a machine with Reese Rails is always a great selling feature.

Of course. You need my info for shipping them out?

#488 1 year ago

LOL, no I have it on the last shipping tube you sent me.

I should be tearing down the PF this weekend and will advise!

Would my Road Show rails be in the mess there?

Mess? Haha, yeah they are in there.

#492 1 year ago

Just giving you a hard time.
Thanks for helping me out.

#493 1 year ago

A little weekend session to get some Whirlwind and Theatre of Magic rails ready for finish.

As of now I cannot take any new orders. I have about 15 sets of solid state rails to do and need to focus on them. If you have reached about about sending in rails I will knock those out as quickly as I can.

Thanks as always for the business.

Crazy cold has me a couple days behind on where I wanted to be on these. That said, these titles are now wrapped and going into tubes.

It is. Wanted to make sure the address I shipped to in the past is still good.
