Fantastic!  I just ordered a Hartland G Gauge Army train set from them, and really looking forward to getting it, as well as doing some more shopping with them!

I always get a laugh when I see that iconic photo of Jerry Yellin, kissing that soon to be nurse, in celebration.  My best friend's mother was in the original pic and has re-enacted it with Mr. Yellin for posterity, and every newspaper in existence.  My buddy Bob tells us his mother, Gloria Bullard, was a friend of the nursing student (her name escapes me), and went on to become an MD in South Carolina.  Gloria said her friend enjoyed the moment, mostly due to the excitement of the crowd.  Their main concern was rushing to catch a train back to school.  Of course, none of them had any idea.....

Dr. Gloria still lives.  You can google her.

In case you're like me and saw the Army train on their header image (the yellow box on top of their page) and wondered which one it was, it's this one.

That's the one I ordered from them!  It did arrive over the weekend, but I have to open it and run it!

I'm really looking forward to it!

I went to their website to search for a windmill.  When I searched "windmill" nothing. Then I searched wind mill and it brought up beer and whiskey boxcars...   So I bought those instead lol


Anything can be accomplished, with proper funding.
