Sometimes book stores like Barnes and Noble have OGR and CTT Magazines. 

Of course, best way for him to get one would be for him to subscribe to OGR Magazine, which is a no brainer if he is in to O Gauge trains at all. Arnold 

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

John,

I live in Broward County also, and as mentioned above Barnes and Noble carries OGR and other model train magazines of all sorts.  Go to the Newsstand section, and there is one right there in Coral Springs where your brother lives.

Another option is to go to a hobby store.  Ready To Roll Trains in North Miami (Miami-Dade County) has a good selection of literature and Discount Trains in Oakland Park (Broward County) has some too. Up to around 4 years ago there used to be 3 hobby stores in Broward County with good train sections.   Two of them discarded trains altogether and went 99% drones and RC. Both have since gone out of business.  I patronized all 4 stores now am only left with 2.

Same here. I'm in Ft Lauderdale. There is another small hobby shop on Lantana blvd altho I don't remember the name. But on Lantana blvd & I95 go east. It's a mile or 3 down on the south side of the road. They do carry back issues of OGR & others.

Thanks all !

John,

I'm just now leafing through the pages of the June/July issue, and now I know why your brother is interested... a certain distinguished 92-year old gentleman on Page 37, your father.

I hope your Dad is enjoying the Breckenridge Village layout. 👍

SThere is another small hobby shop on Lantana blvd altho I don't remember the name. But on Lantana blvd & I95 go east. It's a mile or 3 down on the south side of the road. They do carry back issues of OGR & others.

It is called the Depot.

Are you guys sure there’s a train shop called “The Depot” on Lantana Blvd in Broward County?  

If so that’s very confusing as there was a shop called “The Depot” on Lantana Road IN Lantana in Palm Beach County which is now out-of-business.

No it was in Lantana in Palm Beach county. It's been quite a while since I've been there so if it's out of business, that is a real shame.

The Depot hobby store was located on Lantana Road just East of I-95 (in Palm Beach County, FL) until the owners, Jim and Georgina Tillman retired (after about 30 years) and closed up the shop within the last year. You might still see them at local train shows, but unfortunately, they no longer have the storefront.
