I found this interesting video featuring hobby shops from "Way back when."  Not especially concerning model railroading but a fun watch just the same.

Cool!  Big Smile.  I think I spotted a Queen Mary kit around the 3 minute mark (by the boy's hip).  But it could also be the SS United States.  And any vehicle that's at least close to "correct" can be used in model railroading.  Wink

I took a look at the 3:00 minute mark and I can't what ship it is either, but what REALLY caught my eye was the "Reginald Denny Hobby Shop" at the 3:30 mark.

Yes, THAT Reginald Denny, the British actor and member of Hollywood's "British Colony."  Here's his story, quite a guy!

I knew I'd heard the name before?
