Thanks for the Memories
Saturday June 14th was the end of an era for the model railroading community in the Richmond area. For many years Chesterfield Hobbies stocked trains from small to large, 2 rail or 3 rail. standard and narrow gauge. The trains occupied about two thirds of the well stocked store which is odd in these days. A trip to the store was one which many outside of Richmond looked forward to in anticipation. Owned and staffed by Adrian Cates and Tom English who gave years of good service and advice. Adrian is planning to continue fixing Lionel trains as a side business. We wish Adrian well in his 'retirement' and wish Tom was still here to see it. Thanks for the memories guys.
Our next meet will be in Farmville, VA on September 8th with a full day of clinics and activities. Click Here for details
