Wow about Electric Train Outlet!! I lived in STL for two years and he said he was retiring and selling then...15 years ago!!
I just got into O at the end of 2017. When I told people I went to that store and the owner said he's retiring, they would laugh and say the same thing: "He always says that!" (Super O Bob said the same). So I wanted him to know that it's finally, actually happening.
