1800s cast iron pull toy

Quarter-inch scale Baldwin S12


Wherever you fall on the continuum between these two objects, there is much to be thankful for in this hobby. As we in the United States pause to give thanks this week, I want to express my gratitude for our friends and readers who have made our products possible. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    In the words of cartoonist Jerry Scott,

    “Thanksgiving is a holiday that started in America in the early 1600s. Its purpose was to give thanks to God for food, family, and friends. Football games and overeating were added later to increase participation.”

    We do indeed have a great deal to be thankful for.

    Hi Ed,

    It’s been a tough year for all and so many folks on the East coast have a long road ahead of them but where there’s life, there’s hope. Lot’s to be grateful for indeed.
