A couple weeks ago I spotted a post in a forum of someone giving away old train and hobby magazines.
Well, the guy had a bunch of magazines from my favorite era for reading 1950's-1960's model railroading and it turned out he was in the same city as me. I figured if he has a collection of old magazines he must be an older gentleman that is clearing out some junk.
When I got there I met his mom, and he came out of the garage. Lo and behold he is a younger train fan. Even more surprising, he said his favorite scale is O scale.
We hung out a little and talked trains. And I left with boxes of magazines.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I am the older dude in the pictures.
Seems I got a new train buddy.
