    With all the great things being done my modelers here with cardboard of some type or other thought I'd see if anybody remembers these. :)

    Haven't seen that in years. I still may have one tucked away in my HO boxes in storage.:)

    Hey Tyson, Shades of Woolworth's Five and Dime or as we called it here....A 10 cent store!!!... (pronounced "tin-cin-sto") The one here always had a good selection of AHM stuff!!! back in the 60's....I remember those!!:) I seem to recall that there were several different ones. :)

    Also Whitman Publishing had a series of "Wild West" "punch out" books that you could make a western town from. They were somewhere between HO and N scale but looked ok if you put the toward the back of the layout.:) :D In fact I sold a set of them on eBay last year for some pretty good bucks!:)

    Thanks my friend for bringing back a good memory!!!:) :D

    Very cool, Tyson!
    I do remember those...when I was a kid, I helped one of my friends who had an HO train set, put some of those together...I remember we used about a gallon of Elmer's to put together three little buildings, & then plopped 'em down on the plywood! :D

    Vic,
    Around here, there was Roses', & Woolworth's...it didn't matter which one you went to...they were both called "the dime store"! :)
