Reply to "2022 Catalog Paper Edition"

Thanks to all who responded-and I apologize to those thinking I was Lionel bashing-I actually, as hinted by leapinlarry, am more bemoaning the passing of an era. As noted in my profile, I am a retired teacher-in a Chicago medical school where I spent most of my professional life caring for patients, teaching and , the last 30 some years, in medical education leadership. So I use/used computers liberally-and have grown to appreciate the instant access to information they provide. However, like many old farts my age, I also love reading paper-books, articles, etc..-and, for example, "view" my time in the library , down in the stacks ( or what is left of them) as sacred time for myself. So I keep certain books and articles in hard-copy-to take off a shelf and review something special. And finally, the same goes for my leisure time-I enjoy learning about trains just as much as I do collecting them-and still like leisurely perusing old catalogs . That's all-I presume that when oldies like me are gone-these discussions will no longer be had-UNLESS the circle comes round again. You know there is some old data from humans ( mainly children) and chimpanzees that we retain "things" better with handling them in addition to seeing them.  Enjoy !!
