THE END OF AN ERA! (in modeling, that is)

Well, last Tuesday was a bittersweet day. I got what will be my last UPS package of stuff shipped to me from Caboose Hobbies in Denver, Colorado. Every time I visited Denver, a must stop was at Caboose Hobbies, which was a huge hobby shop loaded with models, kits, and parts, and that included a lot of narrow gauge modeling items and narrow-gauge-themed books, too. However, the store's landlord made them move for a site redevelopment, and it was time for the owners to retire, and so they are closing up shop this month.

This isn't the first wonderful hobby shop to close or migrate to web-only, and won't be the last. All things change in this world, and I suppose this hobby isn't exempt, either.

However, on the plus side, I got a neat book shipped to me, and a bunch of locomotive and car parts that I can use for modelbuilding on my Gilpin Tram layout. So, there will be more to come!

Stay tuned...
