Well, I was, still am and probably always will be a merchant. Once the models were produced, what was I going to do? Pretend they didn’t exist? I had the kind of store where folks expected to see most everything that was available in toy trains and model railroading, so I dealt in the reproductions, I sure did. Here’s a photo of the front counter, with reproduction standard gauge on display. By the way, thank you for your patronage back then, it was most appreciated.
