Much like a lifelong New Yorker stuck in southern California, unable to watch and attend Mets games, a model railroader away from his favorite railroad is a sad one indeed. Okay, what the heck am I talking about? What I mean is when I walk into an LHS anywhere in Arizona, or California for that matter since I've tried there too, I can find barely an item from the New York Central, Pennsy, C&O, B&O, N&W, NS, Erie, or any of a hundred Eastern railroads. Even Northern Pacific and Great Northern is a stretch. The shop owners say there just isn't a demand, and that makes me rather sad.:cry: No offense to UP, BNSF, SP, WP, and D&RGW folks, but I'm feeling seriously under represented. I mean, the BNSF runs 100 yards from my door, wheres the fun in modeling that? Instead of a layout I could just build a big window. Anyone else find it hard to see their favorite roadname outside of a catalog?
