Daylight Savings Time Coming!

 Yes, March is just days away and for those who dread this event stress levels will spike not this weekend, but next weekend when many of the United States leap forward one hour. YIKES!
  The Doctor (Ben) says that the best remedy to prevent the insanity from occurring is to get back to work on your models! We have *tons* of Details & Weathering Products for you to stock up on plus all the great Doctor Ben Weathering & scratchbuilding products.

  It seems that I started a rash of folks offering to sell their OOP Kits (FSM, Chooch, South River Model Works, etc.) I apologize for any confusion because it was certainly not my intent to generate interest in this activity. As I stated in the last Newsletter I was just trying to clear up the Category Description issue. I bought, Sold and Traded OOP kits for many years and now with the expansion of the Internet AND sites like eBay the supply of these kits have swelled and prices are much more competitive. And quite frankly, I would much rather BUILD the kits which may be what I end up doing after We Sell Our Businesses!
  Last but not least, the 2020 Model Train Show Sponsored by the Piedmont Division of the NMRA is coming to town March 14th & 15th. Are you going?
