Allen- Nice to see you are still "playing" with trains. I remember you when I was a kid and you were the auctioneer at the monthly MTA (Model Train Association) meetings in Bellflower and TCA Western Division meetings at Bateman Hall in Lynwood. (I think those were the locations if memory serves correct?)
I had visited your store several times and attended a few of the auctions at the store-those were really great events.
Great memories of great times. The hobby was certainly different back then!!
