Good day, Stuart,
Nice feel-good article for the Model Railroad Industry
Association, the same ones that pulled out of the National Train
Show in Toronto last summer, forcing the NMRA to kill the show.
Funny how the numbers get exaggerated as well. The National
Train Show is mentioned by the NMRA President but, if he was
quoted accurately, he added 10,000 invisible visitors to the
show. In the last 6 years the NTS has drawn between 20 -
25,000 visitors max. I know, I was there counting them ;-)
Still, there was no mention of Z scale, one of the few growing
segments of the hobby. Just means that we've got to reach out
more to the public, model railroaders and the New York Times
