    Hi. This has always haunted me. And it was so long ago I don't know if I dreamt it or it really was there..: I have in my mind's eye there was a train dealer on the corner of where Glendale Bl. and Fletcher intersect, across from the Astro Restaurant in SilverLake, named Lobaugh Trains (or some spelling of that). It was like a small converted garage at the sidewalk. You'd go in and (I believe) there were O and or HO locos (somehow) on display. If you wanted to ask or buy something, a person (Lobaugh ?) came to a shoulder high opening at the back wall.. All you saw was their head. They'd do business with you that way. It's no longer there of course..This is all I can remember. Is there anyone out there who can confirm this to be true or not ? Thanks.

    I have some old Model Railroader magazines from the 70's, I'll look and see if they are an advertiser in there.:rolleyes:
