Description:

The author describes the situation with apparent growth in numbers for AF, hi-rail, and Sn3 modelers, but "scale" standard-gauge modelers are lacking. He also covers how the World's Greatest Hobby show doesn't seem to include S-scale, and how difficult it is to get S-scale content and ads into the main model railroading magazines.
