Does anyone know of a complete list of the Strombecker HO wood and paper models?  (Not the Early locos like Dewitt Clinton, but the newer ones.)  I have the following:
Mikado loco and tender
NYC Pacemaker boxcar (red and gray)
C&O hopper (black)
AT&SF reefer (with map logo)
Shell Chemical tank car (gray)
Hercules Powder tank car (red)
Heinz 57 pickle tank car (yellow)
B&O Sentinal box car
SPRR reefer (PFE)
caboose (no road name)
Obviously, I'm not going to be running the mike, but the other models, if built carefully and with Kadee trucks and couplers installed, actually look pretty good if you don't get too close.

I'm fairly sure I sent a list of StromBecker to be included in the V Files, but it's been so long I don't remember distinctly.  Still, whenever anyone needs to know what a manufacturer made, the first place they might very possibly find it is in the files as a good number of manufacturers have already been covered for any member's use.  Looks like you left out a few of the rolling stock pieces.  My StromBecker catalog includes these, with their catalog numbers:  I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "the newer ones," but I was building all of these in the late '40's.

Thanks for passing along this update on Jim.  So glad to hear he's doing well, albeit his condition continuing to deteriorate.  He has been and will continue to be an inspiration to all of us here, not only by his strength in enduring this disease but by his persistence in his fine modeling efforts in the past, showing us what can be done if one has a mind to do it.
 
It's so nice to know he still thinks about us; I hope he's still up to reading what's going on here from day to day, even if he's unable to participate.  My thoughts often are of him, how he's doing and of his marvelous collection, just as I'm sure he crosses everyone else's minds.  
 
Here's wishing him and his family a very Happy Holiday Season.

I should have been more specific regarding "newer".  I was referring to the time period of the prototypes, not the age of the kits.  One reason I have enjoyed these kits is that they remind me of when I was a kid and something like these was all I could afford.  My first kit was for a Heinz coffin car, for which I paid 50 cents to a hobby shop owner whose "store" was in his garage in my neighborhood.

Keith,
 
I thought you meant the period when the kits were produced, but the HO manufacturers weren't very far behind the prototype at all.  The prototype New Your Central Pacemaker fast freight service -- using those sharp looking red & grey boxcars -- was introduced in 1946 for their symbol freights NB-1 and BN-2 between New York City and Buffalo.  In 1948, additional Pacemaker service was added on the Boston & Albany.  Baltimore & Ohio's Sentinel fast freight service started in 1945.  I would assume that all the rest of these cars were being operated on the prototype railroads at this same time.  These cars are lists @ 40 cents each.  I remember paying that around then, might have even been 35 cents.  . 
 
As for what StromBecKer described as "New Historic Car Kits," you have all three -- the 1831-C DeWitt Clinton, 1848-C C&NW Pioneer and the 1837-C Wm Galloway.  There was also a train set -- 1831-GT --  with the DeWitt Clinton loco and two DeWitt Clinton Coaches and another set -- R-131 -- of just two extra DeWitt Clinton Coaches.  Then there was the train set -- 1848-NT -- with the C&NW Pioneer loco and one Pioneer Coach, and then the extra -- R-148 -- Pioneer Coach.  Finally, there was the train set -- 1837-BT -- Wm Galloway loco and two Wm Galloway Freight Cars (gondolas), and the extra set -- B-137 -- two Wm Galloway Freight Cars.  The Pioneer loco was listed at 79 cents and the other two locos were listed at 59 cents each.

The Central's cars were dedicated to Pacemaker service; one of their unique appearances was there were no data blocks on the cars.  The B&O cars lettered for Sentinel Service were for advertising purposes, and the cars could be sent anywhere in the country; it was a way to track a shipment, but there were no SS trains.

Both railroads' services were designed to expedite freight faster than regular mixed freight trains could travel.  Yes, New York Central's Pacemaker cars were originally restricted to NYC rails; they were used to ship LCL freight only between points on their railroad.  The beginnings of this service saw unit freight trains of these high speed Pacemaker cars up to 70 cars long.  This was the Symbol Freights NB-1 and BN-2 between New York City and Buffalo, NY.  Shortly after, Pacemaker service was started on NYC's subsidiary, the Boston & Albany RR -- between Boston and Buffalo -- their Symbols being BB-1 and BB-2.  By 1951, these cars were moved in other freight trains as far west as Chicago and off line to points like Montreal and Charleston, WV.
 
B&O's Sentinel Fast Freight Service also moved as unit trains on home rails, but would move also in fast freight trains on other "friendly" roads.  The Central States Dispatch was an example of this, using the NYNH&H, L&HR and RDG.  The Sentinel cars were not merely lettered for advertising purposes as they traveled at speeds equal to first class passenger trains.  The cars were specially equipped with roller bearing trucks and AB-1-B brake equipment, allowing faster brake application at high speed.

Hmmm, I didn't know that. Somewhere I have some old kits, I think
perhaps Menzies, with metal sides in B&O Sentinel paint. So if/when I
get around to assembling them I need to use roller bearing trucks?

Interesting. There was a similar hobby shop in my town in PA that closed a few years back, and the candid reason was that the owner was tired of being a "7 Eleven" type of store of the area. He wasn't making enough on big ticket items to make it work for him, and I think he just got bored with it all.

So many brick and mortar shops are closing due to changing shopping habits. Customers come into the shop, touch the product, ask questions and then buy online because it's cheaper. The online guy doesn't have the overhead, usually does bigger volume, thus gets volume pricing, so sell for less. I haven't bought new rolling stock for years, but I do try to buy whatever small stuff I need from my local shops.

Subject: Re: Sad News
Your opening statement reminds me of what I heard about R/C-specializing model aircraft stores about 15 years ago. The big ad" suppliers in the mags were draining the markets locally all over the country.
Now the Internet has replaced the full-page print ads...in some cases. And that's true for model railroading.

So many brick and mortar shops are closing due to
changing shopping habits. Customers come into the shop,
touch the product, ask questions and then buy online because
it's cheaper. The online guy doesn't have the
overhead, usually does bigger volume, thus gets volume
pricing, so sell for less. I haven't bought new rolling
stock for years, but I do try to buy whatever small stuff I
need from my local shops.

It is with great

sadness that I report that another one bites the

dust.  The biggest and most well stocked hobby shop in

Milwaukee, WI is

closing as of April 1st.  Greenfield News and Hobbies

specialized in not

only trains, but a fantastic selection of plastic models
and

a fantastic RC

department, staffed by RC pilots, etc.  Plus a great
art

department and the

largest magazine display in the city. There was nothing

like this

store.

 

I have not been able

to find out the reason for the

closing.

Smith

Subject: Re: [vintageHO] Sad News
Regarding those who look at something in a hobby shop and then buy online.  I always thought it was poor form to do this.  If you want to buy online (or - previously - mail order) that’s fine.  If the marketplace changes, so be it.  But if you see it in the store, buy it in the store.

I suspect there may soon be enough technology (perhaps a visual helmet you wear or, better yet, a high speed connector straight into your brain) that we will be able to very closely emulate a hobby shop experience.  But that also means we can experience having the “stuff” without having to actually buy it in the first place.

Your opening statement reminds me of what I heard about R/C-specializing model aircraft stores about 15 years ago. The big ad" suppliers in the mags were draining the markets locally all over the country.
Now the Internet has replaced the full-page print ads...in some cases. And that's true for model railroading.

So many brick and mortar shops are closing due to
changing shopping habits. Customers come into the shop,
touch the product, ask questions and then buy online because
it's cheaper. The online guy doesn't have the
overhead, usually does bigger volume, thus gets volume
pricing, so sell for less. I haven't bought new rolling
stock for years, but I do try to buy whatever small stuff I
need from my local shops.

It is with great

sadness that I report that another one bites the

dust.  The biggest and most well stocked hobby shop in

Milwaukee, WI is

closing as of April 1st.  Greenfield News and Hobbies

specialized in not

only trains, but a fantastic selection of plastic models
and

a fantastic RC

department, staffed by RC pilots, etc.  Plus a great
art

department and the

largest magazine display in the city. There was nothing

like this

store.

 

I have not been able

to find out the reason for the

closing.

Subject: Re: Sad News

From what I understand, with information coming via Je Russ, they are retiring. So why they are retiring is of course open to question and I would not be surprised to find out that they are tired of competing with sellers whose only investment is a computer and an isp.

 

While that may or may not be the major cause the fact that Jay has been seeking a buyer and not finding one is more than likely due to the plight of brick-n-mortar stores.

 

We were fortunate to have such a good dealer available for this long and GN&H will be sorely missed.

Regarding those who look at something in a hobby shop and then buy online.  I always thought it was poor form to do this.  If you want to buy online (or - previously - mail order) that’s fine.  If the marketplace changes, so be it.  But if you see it in the store, buy it in the store.

 

I suspect there may soon be enough technology (perhaps a visual helmet you wear or, better yet, a high speed connector straight into your brain) that we will be able to very closely emulate a hobby shop experience.  But that also means we can experience having the “stuff” without having to actually buy it in the first place.

Your opening statement reminds me of what I heard about R/C-specializing model aircraft stores about 15 years ago. The big ad" suppliers in the mags were draining the markets locally all over the country.
Now the Internet has replaced the full-page print ads...in some cases. And that's true for model railroading.

So many brick and mortar shops are closing due to
changing shopping habits. Customers come into the shop,
touch the product, ask questions and then buy online because
it's cheaper. The online guy doesn't have the
overhead, usually does bigger volume, thus gets volume
pricing, so sell for less. I haven't bought new rolling
stock for years, but I do try to buy whatever small stuff I
need from my local shops.

It is with great

sadness that I report that another one bites the

dust.  The biggest and most well stocked hobby shop in

Milwaukee, WI is

closing as of April 1st.  Greenfield News and Hobbies

specialized in not

only trains, but a fantastic selection of plastic models
and

a fantastic RC

department, staffed by RC pilots, etc.  Plus a great
art

department and the

largest magazine display in the city. There was nothing

like this

store.

 

I have not been able

to find out the reason for the

closing.

Smith

Your opening statement reminds me of what I heard about R/C-specializing model aircraft stores about 15 years ago. The big ad" suppliers in the mags were draining the markets locally all over the country.
Now the Internet has replaced the full-page print ads...in some cases. And that's true for model railroading.

So many brick and mortar shops are closing due to
changing shopping habits. Customers come into the shop,
touch the product, ask questions and then buy online because
it's cheaper. The online guy doesn't have the
overhead, usually does bigger volume, thus gets volume
pricing, so sell for less. I haven't bought new rolling
stock for years, but I do try to buy whatever small stuff I
need from my local shops.

Some time ago, in 1963, My favorite Hobby shop in New Haven, Conn closed JUST BEFORE I had returned from a tour in the Air Force.. That event almost caused me to lose interest in the Hobby altogether... Latter on I found another shop that was almost as good several miles away, The Caboose in Wolcott, Conn, I moved from Conn in 1988 and since then have relied on mail order supplies and then Internet since the Early 90s.. 
 
Times change and those who want to remain interested in the Hobby must go with the flow or lose interest for lack of supplies.. I personally think the internet  is a better way to get the items needed..

For a while I worked in a hobby shop. One fellow
came in a lot, asked a lot of questions but almost never bought anything.

He came in with a new engine we'd talked about.
We didn't carry it, but I offered to order it for him. He declined.
He'd gotten it for 25% off from
WeUndcercutEveryStore.com. He had a problem with
the engine and wanted help solving it.

I looked at him, asked if he'd checked YouTube

Depending on the period (years) you're modeling, you may not need to use roller bearing trucks under this kit when it's built.  I wrote you a full explanation on this a few minutes ago, taking me about a half hour to outline including information from Athearn, Menzies, Timken Roller Bearing Co and the prototype B&O Railroad collection of literature/railroadiana in my collection -- only to have it all disappear in a puff when I got one of those instant power outages that requires resetting all your digital clocks again.  I regret I have no time to do this all over again, nor could I recall everything I put into it.  If time permits in the near future I'll try to make the attempt to write the explanation once more.  Sorry about this, but if you're disappointed, I'm absolutely frustrated.

Your note leaves me puzzled about which thread you're referring to. 

Looking at the last couple of posts from this list doesn't seem to have the one. I'd have to search on the group site to better know which it is.

It seems it may have been more than 12-hours ago and now on my computer instead of still on my ISP.

I love a mystery as much as anyone. Not giving out a clue as to what is being posted about is almost as frustrating as a long post that has little relevance to this list.

Now I'm going to wonder what this was about for some time......

It's bad enough that I got all those reports about my favorite and The only good hobby shop for 100 miles around, closing on the upcoming April Fools day.

I'm not having a good day with the faint hope that the choice of that date may mean it's all just a twisted rumor.

I'm getting there today to see what might be the truth.

If I see a sign posted about this, it's one more reason for me to move out of this Metro region and into a saner part of the country.

An old observation of mine that dated back to when Bob Hyden lived just blocks away from me with his excellent and well known HOn30 layout was the frustration that even though it had tons of publicity with frequent articles about it in a national magazine, Model Railroader. Which also was just minutes away. There was never more than a handful of related models for sale among the several hobby shops in this metro region of a million or so people.

That was the case for many years. If you wanted the stuff you ordered it from another part of the country, even-though the catalyst for it was in their backyard and the largest hobby distributor was just minutes away, also carrying just a very few items among its tens of thousands of items.

Greenfield News and Hobby has always been a very well managed and diversified hobby shop, the best for about a hundred miles around.

If it closes I will have go strictly Internet to other hobby shops that are many states away.

There will be just the periodic swap meets to fill the needs of most of the model railroaders around here as something they can actually go to. I include the monthly NMRA meets and annual Trainfest with that. The remaining MRR hobby shops are either Lionel-centric or Walthers-centric, and very limited in their scope.

I'm going to really miss that hobby shop.

One other grudge I have with this community is that with a population of nearly 600,000, there is -no- computer store in it. You must go to surrounding smaller communities to buy or add to one. It couldn't be much more out of touch with the modern era and has been that way in all of the decades I've been around to observe.

As such, I'm not really surprised that that best hobby shop some 15-20 miles away from the center of this sputtering county may be finally folding.

I'm building a list of what I should buy in the next month before that LHS closes and what magazines to subscribe to..... Sadly, there was the only place I knew to get many of them in this community of about a million people.

Perhaps this is the topic you were thinking of?

Subject: Re: Sad News
I worked almost 14 years in Trains & Such here in Calgary. Every customer who bought
at a discount site became a challenge to turn them into a loyal store customer. I started
the process by fixing the problem with the discount engine stating that the repair was free
if he purchased something from the store that was $15.00 or more. I usually did the repair
in front of the customer so that he/she could understand what was involved. I also talked
about the value of local service and the fact that this customer didn't have to pay shipping
to get his item repaired.
After the problem was fixed ( usually within a 1/2 hour! ), the customer would wander around
the store discovering all the neat things we carried! Lot's of times the customer left with more
than $50.00 or $60.00 worth of inventory! Those customers kept coming back because we
took the time to fix that first problem! And no - we didn't get all of these customers, but we did
get the vast majority.
As for my paid time to fix that problem? I was working there anyway! I was paid to be there
helping make my favourite store a success!
If you turn away from a customer, you are part of the service problem! You are actually being
paid the reverse that problem! I strongly suggest that if anyone wants to work retail that they
find a college with a sales training course and learn how the process works. And it is truely
a process! Anyone can learn this and once you have, you don't turn customers away. As I said,
turning these folks into loyal customers is a challenge to be relished! It is the most challenging
and most rewarding part of your job!
Remember - you don't sell trains - you sell SERVICE! You want that customer coming back to
you because you made him feel good by showing you cared about his problem!

Geez Mike,

 

Maybe you should just end it all. I will definitely miss GN&H a lot but really…..

 

What about South Side Trains? Tom is running a very good store that specializes in model railroading. He is very honest, gives decent discounts and will get you virtually anything you want.

 

Or, as long as you can still drive run 20 minutes west to Hiawatha Hobbies.

 

And, not to discount all the usual carping about the “big business” end of hobby, I still find myself looking to Walthers.

 

I am involved with several O scale modelers (O SCALE indicating the 2 rail community) and there hasn’t been anything like a real outlet in the Milwaukee area for years yet somehow we manage to survive.

 

Yes, it appears the king is dead but life will go on, even in the HO world. Put the sword away old friend.

John,

It's more a case of I'm not going to let the SOB's get me.

As to the rest......

They promised me a jet pack and a flying car and I'm tired of waiting for them!

I still want the grueling workload of George Jetson with his mandatory one hour of company duty a month pushing buttons.... And the folding flying car would be better than parking in a garage.

The world is not as we were promised.

Thus I cope with the world as it disappoints all of us.

I've been in some of those hobby shops you mention. In many ways the best that can be said about them, is that they exist and if you like the niche of the model railroading hobby spectrum they specialize in, they are  ok enough.

I'll try this Toms you mention. I don't know it.

My neighborhood has become the sort where 80 year old fellows walking down the street get attacked and beaten up. It's made me cynical and defensive.

As the region continues to go downhill the remaining hobby shops will close and certainly no new ones will open.

Ultimately I'm not surprised that Greenfield Hobby might be closing. It's related to the same reasons that both Kalmbach and Walthers moved further away from the locations the had spent decades in.

Talk to the folks manning Greenfield Hobby and you'll hear lots of incidents of increasing frequent thefts and some violence. Maybe they had an armed robbery as well?

After enough time, closing the store and just maybe becoming an Internet store makes increasing sense.

I don't like using a sword. What I want a Phaser set on Stun to just drop them in their tracks instead of feeling forced to use a gun that will do serious damage to them.

They can have a life changing insight after being Phaser stunned. But there is no hope for self-redemption after being laid low from an older tech  gun.

However, they announced the production of new and cheap pocket computers starting at $99 and we now have those modest powered  x-y table laser cutters at $600....

Maybe it's just a matter of the hobby moving away from the brick and mortar hobby shops and directly into the hands of the individual model railroaders. You'll order some key parts and build the rest from cheap high tech home equipment. Maybe the new tech is just giving us a Sea-Change in the hobby and while it's radically changing, it's still there for us?

I saw the darnedest DIY in Thing-i-verse, a nearly massive free files source for 3d printing.

A fellow had downloadable pattern files to 3d print a new holder-head for the exact 3d printer I got a month ago............ Converting it into a CNC-Mill with the addition of a standard Dremel tool.

The hobby is DEFINITELY changing on us. For the cost of a single well equipped Walthers HO DCC-Sound HO Diesel you can get a good 3d printer, and for not too many bucks at all you can convert that into a cnc-mill.

I'm finding more and more model railroad 3d print files for a home 3d printer to use. Like I note, for the cost of a single Walthers China-made HO high-tech diesel, you can get a 3d printer, or a craft drag-knife cnc-cutter [USA made] and build your own model fleet instead of buying the single Walthers China-made model.

I've still got my eye on that old article by Bill Rau making several different very vintage model RR cars from stripwood and the newer but still from a while ago articles from Al Turner doing the like in styrene.

I regret that the kits I loved are no longer in production. But I love that those modelers that came before us showed us everything about how to make those models ourselves without a kit existing for it.

I regret that I never got to attend a clinic on how to build from Paul Moore or Tom Matola. Thankfully I got a hands on session from a great local scratch-builder, Dan Sylvester.

As the Vintage model supply dries up on us, we are empowered to make them for ourselves with tooling that makes it easier and easier. I'm certain that ventures like Shapeways will make vintage modeling still very possible, easy, low-cost, and increasingly more available.

I think we are at the point where we can get critical steamer parts like side-rods from such a service. There are several ways to duplicate them into computer files and then have them 3d printed or made otherwise. About the only truly difficult part to buy new are the drivers. While you can't easily get your choice of things like steam domes from The Old-line Market, you can get them either from Shapeways or clone them from any old model boiler you can get your hands on. I have some old bodies just for the domes and some other details like air-pumps that are on them......... RTV cast-able if I can't get them from more typical hobby supply routes.

So..... while it may seem that the hobby is gradually drying up on us. It really isn't. Its' just changing in the wings, largely unnoticed by us............. But definitely still moving forward.

You'll order some key parts and build the rest from cheap high tech home equipment. Maybe the new tech is just giving us a Sea-Change in the hobby and while it's radically changing, it's still there for us?

Subject: Model car hunting aid.
Some list mentioned a reference book that covers domestic cars to the point of having hard-core specs.

Its most useful for double checking if the HO scale car you bought, is really HO scale. Its also a usable general guide for being more sure that the nameless model car you find at a swap meet is really close to your scale.

This came up in recent questions about if a certain HO Edsel was actually HO. It comes down to what is the real wheel\base and the length and width of the true car.

The book is "Standard Catalog of American Cars 1946-1975" Its also out in versions for other cars and trucks.

I managed to find a low priced used issue via Amazon and it just arrived a few minutes ago. Its almost a 1,000 pages and the size of a typical phonebook.

I just thumbed through a bit and found the most obscure ones in the back of it. Did you know that the odd-ball Renwall scale model of the now I know was the 1966 Duesenburg really did exist ????? Other than that, the very common of everything is well spec'd in the book. I had the scale model in my youth.

My copy of this book was frankly cheap, and I think it was absolutely worth getting.

[Its nice to see the details on the '56 Packard Clipper 4-dr we used to have....]

For many of us, the knowledge of the store employees (often just the owner) is invaluable. Arguably, everything we want to know is on the web, but listening to experience, interacting with someone who shares your passion, and sometimes just swapping stories enhances the hobby immensely. I go to train swap meets, and sometimes spending so much time talking that I don't see the whole floor. Not to mention examining many items up close. The internet is nice if that's your kind of convenience and don't mind being disappointed occasionally.

There was a rather large article in the Milwaukee newspaper about the shop closing.  Basically Jay, the owner of the shop, said that business had fallen off over 30 percent.  Even in the huge RC department, he said that everything is pre built.  He said that kids are not building things anymore. He said that could be because of the price of things or just that kids today would rather be on the computer games.  While the store carries 2000 different magazines, he can't make the payroll on magazines.
 
If the interest in trains was there, the cost factor is a great portion.  I bought Athearn yellow box kits as a kid when a flat car cost .95 cents and a boxcar was $1.50.  That was in 1961.  Ok, inflation has taken place, but today's assembled boxcar can cost up to $45.00 for Kadee.  True, Accurail still has kits, but no one around here stocks them.  Maybe because nobody wants to build them.  Gone is the Athearn diesel kit, that sold for a reasonable price. (Blue Box)
 
Jay said that his customers average over 50 years old.  OK, we over 50 crowd have the money to spend on hobbies.  I am going to miss a place to go to buy a bottle of Boxcar Red paint.  I will try Southside Trains, but others have said that he doesn't have much, (compared to GN&H.)

As I previously stated I will sorely miss GN&H. Jay ran superb store and there I really don’t see any possibility of getting a replacement.

 

That said, South Side Trains has, I believe close to what GN&H had IN TRAINS. Tom runs a model railroad store period. Compare the foot print of Tom’s whole store to GN&H’s train department and I think it is comparable. Plus SST is the kind of store where customers gather to do their general bs meets, just as GN&H’s train department was.

 

So good bye to one wonderful store but we still have a pretty good alternative.

 

Oh yeah, if one lives a tad to the west, Hiawatha Hobbies is still extant. Again not a GN&H but still a good shop.

Yup GN&H is going for certain........

I was there today and the way the shelves were becoming bare is another way of confirming it.

I'm not sure we can blame the youth for not building things these days. When you recall how much of the younger population is being forced to remain at home [jobless] instead of getting their own places, you can better understand why Train layouts and kit builders of all sorts are limited to the amount of space they have in their bedrooms until they are nearly 35 years old for a lot of today's folks if they are a non-welfare family.

Then there's the huge portion of the youth that have only a single parent family and Mom just isn't as likely to encourage the development of skills as a father would, nor does Mom have any sort of those constructive skills to help the kids grow up with. Mom certainly won't have a little wood shop, nor will be repairing the family car from time to time. That's the sort of things only fathers and other family senior-males will do.

I'll not go deeper into that line of thought except to point out that it's not just the oft repeated meme of todays kids playing video games instead of wanting to make stuff. That's the look on the surface and not the deeper cause.

Ultimately, this shop has declared it has serious problems with an economy that has worsened over the last eight years of constantly declining sales. We still are not recovering from the banking/real-estate collapse of years ago. The last time this happened with Carter, we got out of it and back to a strong economy in 18-months. This time the Feds have done almost everything that was the opposite of making that recovery and having done just the opposite in about every possible way, there has been no true recovery, now eight years later. We haven't even reached the level of partial recovery we had six-months into the last major recovery........... eight years later.

GN&H held on as long as they could..........

They certainly will be missed!

Brad......... More of today's kids than those of our days are afraid to play outside. In too much of our cities its simply unsafe to be alone or even in a very small group outside. Its a major reason why a lot of kids don't play outside like they used to.

No-one will manage to convince them to play outside as long as they are afraid to some degree. These days, the once mythical Bogie-Man out to get you is real and numerous.

Hey Mike,

From this last post of yours, it sounds as though you have picked yourself up by your drivers;  your tone definitely improved as you continued posting.

 

I owned a hobby shop in the mid ‘70s.  I even carried exotic birds.  You know, I was trying to diversify;  reach all the market I could.  It was quite a Chinese fire drill when one or two escaped from their cages.  It was a great ride.  I had one month were I didn’t lose money---December!

The town hadn’t had a hobby shop in ten years.   However I couldn’t beat the prices of a ‘business man’ who operated out of his garage, and had filled the gap by getting a license – could buy at wholesale, same as me.  He ordered for himself and friends.  He was mail ordering back then.

 

Internet satisfies many diverse interests, is cheaper for the seller, and an entrepreneur can consider the world as a potential marketplace.  Frequent buying at volume is much more comforting, than having to extract as much as possible from an occasional buyer willing to buy at a higher price.

 

Further:

This is part of what I saw yesterday.  Then consider that it was broken up and double spaced.

Here is the condensed part:

Kids are playing with computers and video games because they want to. We are not talking about twenty or thirty-something’s that live at home because they can’t afford to live elsewhere. We are talking kids, mainly 10 – 18 year olds who seem to have the money to get all the electronics they want.

 

Yes this shop has problems with the economy that went sour on the Republican watch do to verily lax banking, mortgage and investment regulations. The recovery has been about the best it could be in today’s world economy. But that is not the whole picture. The economy does not make the ages of hobbyists rise which is the largest part of the situation. If the oldsters were being replaced by younger people this would not be so severe.

 

I do agree that it is far more dangerous for the young to spend as much unsupervised time outdoors but that should actually increase the numbers of hobbyists if they didn’t have their noses stuffed in their notebooks.

I'm not sure we can blame the youth for not building things these days. When you recall how much of the younger population is being forced to remain at home [jobless] instead of getting their own places, you can better understand why Train layouts and kit builders of all sorts are limited to the amount of space they have in their bedrooms until they are nearly 35 years old for a lot of today's folks if they are a non-welfare family.

 

Then there's the huge portion of the youth that have only a single parent family and Mom just isn't as likely to encourage the development of skills as a father would, nor does Mom have any sort of those constructive skills to help the kids grow up with. Mom certainly won't have a little wood shop, nor will be repairing the family car from time to time. That's the sort of things only fathers and other family senior-males will do.

This time the Feds have done almost everything that was the opposite of making that recovery and having done just the opposite in about every possible way, there has been no true recovery, now eight years later.

A lot of the time it comes from someone writing in or replying from Yahoo-mail in that online editor. You'll note how it seems to appear a lot of times only after someone joins the thread with that address. It sometimes comes from other sources, but rarely. Yahoo mail when written on-line is consistent at doing it.

We better not do any more talking about politics in this list.

I can email you a ton of documentation that will burst your bubbles on what was the cause and who repeatedly tried to prevent it.

You are deeply invested in multiple lies and diversionary excuses that were told to you. We can continue this elsewhere if you'd like.

Beware the man of one book - St. Thomas Aquinas

As to lost youthful hobbyists. I'll insist that it continues through to those past their teen years that are no longer able to have a hobby.

Even among the youthful computer users, there is a major split between those that treat it as just an interactive TV and those that will create and mod their games and delve into computer graphics or computer dark-room type of activity with the family photos. 

Think of all of the people you have encountered that have photos in their digital camera or smart-phone and have no idea of how to get them out. I was recently shocked to find out that my younger sister is one of those.

Think also of the creative sorts that use their computer to create the huge range of additional game objects for the various train simulators, or The Sims games, or the hundreds of thousands of available card models that are on-line and exist to make real world scale models from. Every type of Sim game out there has tens of thousands of player created complex objects, made with programs other than the game itself.

One very nice example is the complete Milwaukee Road Hiawatha train with every car having full interiors in high detail . Technically, its convertible to a real-world operating scale model if you wish to 3d print, cnc-mill, laser-cut, or just bench-build with hand tools.

Computer users do include Builders and Creators that use the computer as their workshop tool.

Remember all of the VCR's that were out there flashing '12:00' because their owners found it too difficult to change the time on them ???  That's the same slice of the population that is playing with a game-machine instead of actually doing things with a computer.

I used an inflation calculator and that buck-and-a-half kit would now sell for about 12 dollars.  That's pretty reasonable, and even better if your LHS discounts.  I have bought a few R-T-R cars, but I still pick up some of the good older kits at train shows.
 
Most of what I own is run on a modular HO layout at train shows where all the kids and parents are interested in is counting the number of cars (including locomotive [units] and caboose) in the trains.  The fact that I'm running a shortened version of a properly blocked New York Central freight eastbound out of Buffalo in the 1950's means nothing to them.  Wire handrails and full brake rigging are for rivet counters at NMRA contests.

The modern equivalent to the old Athearn plastic kits might be Accurail kits.  Comparing a plastic kit to a current assembled freight car is not really a fair comparison.  An Accurail box car kit retails for $16.00 to $17.00 and from a discount (from a brick and mortar) store they can be had for $13.00...pretty close to the inflation adjusted $12.00 Athearn kit. 

Since a large amount of old Athearn, MDC, Varney kits are availible on the second hand market anyone should be able to fill up their train room with vintage cars of their choice.

Well,

After spending two years in my teens nearly dying from then unrecognized Crohnes, getting to this age of 63 is a delightful miracle. After the surgery to remove three feet of deadly green guts, I spent six-weeks in the hospital and didn't register that all of my relatives were stopping by, while thinking I wasn't going to make it out of there. My attitude was quite simply that it was something I have to get through.

More recently I've found that I had developing cataracts at the right point of time and it's almost easy to get 'new' eyes. Its strange when you go through being nearly blind in one eye for about a year and the other gradually drifts into the same condition. Bad eyes sort of run in the family and given enough time the reasons gel on you.

Now to get the second eye fixed before it is too much of a nuisance. I look on it as going to 20-20 vision again with about three weeks off of work. Its a bit strange going from near-sighted to slightly far-sighted. But its still a major improvement in vision.

I don't mind adding on the years as long as I'm repairable. Every year since age 16 has been a blessed miracle by itself.

If you check Accurail's web site from time to time you'll find kits
on sale for direct order. Another nice thing they do is offer decal
renumbering sets so you can change reporting marks. I just looked and
don't see anything on sale ATM.

I have also re-detail 2 of the new Walthers snowplows to match CN & CP prototyps! Yes,
I know - CPR didn't own any Russell plows but this is the only game in town until
True Lines Trains brings out the right CPR snow plow! The CPR plow has the new
Tsunami Sound Car decoder and another is waiting to go into the CN plow! I also have

[that's for ALL FIVE!]  included are parts for an express reefer, high side gondola, boom car, box car, and outside braced bay window caboose.  "Kit has scribed sides; door and end stock; roof, floor, and end stock, center sills, fascia, roof ribs, door slides, bracing, bolsters, ladder stock, grab irons, tins, wire, steps and brake wheels.  No trucks or couplers."  The accompanying photo shows some pretty nice looking models.
I would love to have had that set of kits, but they were a little pricey for me then.

Subject: Sprung Arch Bar Tender Trucks?
I just got an old Mantua 2-6-0 Mogul project which will need, among other things, trucks for the tender. It looks like the original Mantua trucks were replaced at some time with "better" ones, which have since come to pieces — and pieces are all I have — but I was intrigued to see the replacement trucks are sprung leaf-spring-type arch bar trucks. I believe the arch bar style of truck is correct for what should be under this tender (or at least that seems to be what Mantua supplied), and that leaf-type springs are right for the tender (would that be the same for a caboose?), but I'd never before seen HO trucks with working leaf springs! The springs seem to be some sort of bronze material or similar, in diecast sideframes and bolsters; unfortunately no wheelsets, but I'm guessing they must have had at least one brass wheel per set to act as electrical pickup.

I bought some working leaf spring trucks one time to put under a
caboose. I believe they were made by Walthers. Don't know if they're
still available.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s (at least) HO scale
sprung trucks were quite common. Several
manufacturers made them (Central Valley made some
of the best). You could get both coil and leaf
type trucks and aftermarket springs of both
types. The leaf springs were frequently used on a
waycar (caboose to non ATSF, DSP&P, and CB&Q modelers).

 For many years Walthers supplied leaf springs [like you describe] for replacement of coil springs in trucks. Thus most any sprung trucks of the 50-70s  era MIGHT be what your tender had.

The ones I was familiar with, you just took anyone's sprung metal trucks (Athearn, Central  Valley, etc) and removed the coil springs, and replaced them with the leaf springs,  The leaf springs came in a cello bag, by the dozen (sorry, I do not recall the vendor), and had small holes in the ends; you slipped the leafs onto the stubs that retained the coil springs, and had caboose or tender trucks ready to roll.   The beauty of it was you could also take more modern trucks (Andrews, etc.) and do the same, and have nice caboose trucks for your 1930's vintage caboose or tender.     JerryGarteiser

They're listed in the older (1979, in this instance) Walthers catalogs in the Parts section, under Walthers (as Walthers being the vendor).  Description and part number is -- Leaf Springs 1 doz/pkg 946-3005(S) @ 90 cents.  Not quite sure what's meant as "more modern trucks," as Andrews trucks were outlawed for interchange in 1958, but if the 1930's caboose is being compared to, then these style trucks are definitely modern.  Andrews trucks had started to be used at the turn of the last century (19th to 20th) and were used to replace the Arch Bar trucks which were outlawed (for interchange) at the end of 1939 and used some of the Arch Bar components (journal boxes, etc.) at that time.

Someone probably replaced the coil springs with these.  I have what is either these or something similar in some of my trucks.  They're too stiff to actually perform any springing function, but they look cool.  Mine also look more like phosphor bronze than brass.
Now, can someone tell me why leaf springs are used to provide a softer ride than coil springs on tenders and cabooses, but on cars and trucks, coil springs are used to provide a softer ride??

Yes, also found in Walthers' catalogs are -- Kemtron Working Leaf Spring 390-3 pkg(4) @ 90 cents.  Kadee offered packages of truck springs of several types, although I'm only familiar with their coil springs.  Likely they offered leaf springs too.  Might be some on eBay.

I was told years ago that the leaf springs on a caboose provided a smoother ride than coil springs.  As to a tender? I'd guess giving the fireman a steady/smoother ride as he fed the engine might have some value.

Keith,

 

There is a whole lot more involved with ride than the type of spring used. On a tender I’d venture to say the use of leaf springs was more for their load carrying ability than a smooth ride. You take a big cistern with a cast iron base, steels walls and ceiling and fill that sucker with water and they get a tad heavy. I do think that considering the space available for springs leafs could carry more weight. At least with the metallurgy available back in the day. Steam locos pretty much all used leafs and many of the early diesels did too.

 

For a Caboose I’m thinking it was more of ride control issue. Leafs are somewhat self controlled due to the friction between the leaves where as coils and be very bouncy. For freight the weight can negate the bounce to an extant but for a lightly weighted load, using lighter duty coils it could be very much like driving a car when the shock absorbers are totally worn out. We’ve all seen cars rolling down  the roadway that are continually heaving and hoeing long after transversing a bump in the road. It’s the rate of rebound or “jounce”.

Yes.  Leaf springs definitely used on locomotive tenders for load carrying.  A leaf spring can typically carry more load with less spring deflection than coil springs.  For cabooses, definitely for ride quality.  Obviously, the size of the leafs are different for the two application as it seems paradoxical for the same spring type to be best for a very heavy and very light load.

According to that calculator an MR Dollar Model from 1963 would now
be a $7.74 model. Not sure if I can buy the necessary stripwood and
detail parts today for that price to build one of those old things.

Somehow, I find shelling out this kind of money for a wood kit is hard to take and you'd never get me to part with $40 for any one of these manufacturers' rolling stock pieces as I can only see it as a rip off at this price.  Might be I'm just behind times, but as for today's prices on similar current models, I feel this is one reason why the hobby is not attracting younger modelers.
