The author describes the reality of a brick-n-mortar store owner in the 1990s of stocking model railroading items, and S-scale products specifically.
The author reflects on where he has been buying his S-scale products (at S-specific train shows).
The idea of a local club putting together an S-scale starter set from lightly-used and commonly-available American Flyer components has spread to several clubs, and this article covers the success these clubs have had with the idea over the past couple of years. It also covers how tasks are divided among club members to build these sets. A complete listing of how to review the purchased equipment to prepare for including in the sets, is included in this article.
