A Day Out

the stuff I bought today….though I wasn’t going to buy anything.

Isn’t it amazing that when you go to a hobby shop, and have no intention of buying anything, you always come home with stuff.  I wish I could lie and say the stuff just followed me home, but that just wouldn’t be true.

Today I went to three different hobby shops.  Although I primarily went to look at train stuff, I managed to look at paint, car models, plane models, slot cars, magazines, science fiction models, tools, and lots of equipment.  All in all it was a good day.

If you need a day out, a trip to your local hobby shop would be a great idea.  You could go an just talk to people and share ideas on your hobby.  You don’t have to buy anything.  Really.  You don’t have to buy anything.  Of course, that is what I told myself before I left for the shops today.

  1. Anthony, I was wondering now how would be a train driver life, can you imagine crossing Canada by train, basically once a week? and doing short trips every day? My girlfriend and I watched a documentary about the Canadian Pacific Railway and it was so beautiful where the train passed along the way… I think I would like to be a train driver in Canada! what do you think?


  2. My Grandfather was a train engineer (driver) for Canadian Pacific. I think his life was interesting and romantic. Of course he had five children at home who didn't see very much of him. My Grandmother didn't appreciate his life.
    I have always wanted to work for the railroad. I wish I could cross Canada every week. If I knew how to get this job, I would jump at the chance.
