 Its a sad day.

I've been busy with other things so I havent been by the train shop in a couple months, I found out today after 69 years in business Allied Model trains has closed its doors for good.

I bought from them as much as possible because I liked supporting people
In my hobby unfortunatly its had for a Brick & mortar shop to stay in business anymore.

Perhaps not. From alliedmodeltrains.com:

>>>Dispatched from Allied Model Trains, Culver City, California

>>>July 7, 2015

>>>Itís with great sadness we send this message to our friends, customers and vendors.

>>>As of today July 07, 2015, we are closed. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the stockholders had to close and declare insolvency.

>>>We had sixty-nine wonderful years and we are sorry the journey has to end.

>>>All of us at Allied Model Trains, Nick, Fred, George, Karie, Sam, and Dave thank you for all the years of support.

I is sad.  Hobby shops are getting few and far between.  Are town lost ours five to seven years ago.  I think the last one in Tulsa, 50 + miles away, closed.  Now I think the you need to go to Oklahoma City.
