{13} East Court of the Museum of Science and Industry

Image by jimdeane
It was a busy week and I had a terrible block surrounding the theme, so this is one of the few pictures I took this week.

We went to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago for an afternoon and I was trying out my new wide angle lens.

This is the East Court of the MSI. Planes are suspended from the ceiling (that is a full size Boeing 727 on the left) and down below is the Great Train Story exhibit which is an enormous model train set.

Dolton Industry Park, a busy day

Monday, January 16th, 2012

2 arriving and 2 departing trains, one IHB train each way and one Chessie train each way, plus the various switching activities make this operating session very busy. All cars moved during the opearting session featured in this video were virtual interchange car moves. Video is on my Dolton Industry Park HO scale model railroad switching layout. Around 20 minutes long.

Is the model railroad industry dwindling?

Question by : Is the model railroad industry dwindling?
I mean these things are like over $ 900.00 and they hardly sell their merchandise because it is so expensive.

Is there a way to save this industry from dying out?

Answer by Lastdue
I think it’s rapidly changing but I wouldn’t say it was dying out. I do see rapid changes coming in the next few years to some scales. For example I think that O and S scales will really start to diminish in the next few years while N, Ho and G will get more popular. Most O and S scalers are on up in years and while most hobby stores will tell you that they sell a lot of O scale as these folks age I don’t see them being replaced. They also have the money to spend on the expensive items that you are talking about.
As baby boomers retire, I see G scale getting a larger following. I sell some train items on ebay and most of it goes to retirees in CA and FL. These people will still be with us for many more years. Ho and N will be popular with people just getting into the hobby. The problem is how to get new people in. There is a lot of competition with video games and the internet. I will say however that the internet has made it possible to be a good modeler even for someone miles from the nearest hobby store.
I think that the internet will be the death of the local hobby store, at least for trains. They just can’t stock all the items or compete with the prices online.
