This is a great place to get accurate Locomotives, cars, and buildings for model railroads. Well accurate if you are planing to build a coal mining town. Be prepaired to spend piles of cash!

I know, that's one thing keeping me from getting into it. I've checked out some complete sets on eBay. Ouch!

Here is a business that I have gotten a few parts for my Ranchero through, I found they also carry used vintage parts also.

They're not to far from me and I do walk-in business with them. I also get a lot from Dennis Carpenter out of N. Carolina, they have a vendor spot across from mine at The All Ford Nationals at Carlisle Pennsylvania.

I have another hobby that has been hampered a great deal by the demise of Kodachrome. I only managed to get one set of View Master reels made up before Kodachrome 25 dropped off the market. To the left is a Stereo Realist camera atop a viewer. In the center, Realist format slides and to the right a View Master personal camera.

I believe that Fuji makes a film that in comparable in resolution, but I hear it doesn't have the stability of Kodachrome. I've taken a lot of realist format slides, though, They're fun to go through.

I also collect, buy and sell 78's. I have around 2000 of them. Going out Saturday 100 miles one way to check a collection of Edisons, Busy Bees and 1920's labels in 4 big boxes. It has been verified by another collector who bought only 5 discs from the collection...he is very picky on what he buys/collects. I am finally prepared to spend some buck$ and will pay the nice lady far more than what she would get for them if she sent them to a consignment auction.

Photography (not as much as I used to), cars, and collecting and/or restoring old things. Most recent restoration was a Stewart horse trimmer from the twenties.

Isn't a horse trimmer what they use to make miniature horses? Seriously though thats a nice camper there. I am thinking mid to late 60s? I am not familiar with the make. I have a scotty and a aristocrat. The scotty was a total rebuild I did, all new wood. The Aristocrat I have from what I can tell is a prototype and the only one of its model ever made. I talked to one of the main guys there and he said it was probably that.

Difficult to post a photo of genealogy (another hobby) so here's a pic of my jeep at a recent fund-raiser car show.

I have enjoyed rebuilding antique furniture for years as well as building new furniture. As with all things father time catches up with us and the heavier pieces are just no fun to mess with so radios give me that same passion, just a small size. I found this old rocker on the curb and saw the potential.
