Trains in the Valley

 We've been watching videos from the Trains in the Valley couple for the last few years, but we wanted to wait until the big relocation to purchase anything. We recently purchased several items and we're beyond happy with them. They ship pretty quickly and enclose a nice little note with each order. Check them out, you won't regret it.

Depot Train & Hobby

 We stopped by Depot Train & Hobby, 4342 West 130th Street on Saturday. Great array of trains and supplies down in the basement. Cars and ships on the first floor, a really neat place in an unusual setting, the house the store is in is pretty innocuous, so you have to keep your eyes peeled, it's also across from the Broken Wheel, sort of a local landmark. Not many of these places left, so go out and support your local hobby store.
