I just found out that the LHS I've been shopping at for years is closing. I purchased my first RC car here in the late 80's and my first N scale loco a B-mann B&O Mikado that I still have. Now I have to go strictly internet since there are no more LHS's close to my home another closed up a few years ago. The closest one is one hour away and they have very limited N scale stock. This was the last LHS that stocked descent N scale stuff. I knew the owners for a very long time. I think the demise of the HS was that they never sold anything on the net. They where strictly old school. I tried to support them as much as possible I would run over there during my lunch break a lot of times and chat and end up buying something and I thank them for all they're years of good advice and hanging in there since I know how tough it is now a days. You guys will be missed.
