You were within shouting distance of me. You should have come and visited
our fine train stores here in Pensacola. If you get back down here, make the
short trip and stop in at Trains by Johnson or Bobe's. They are both well stocked and friendly shops. Get in touch with me and I'll give you the grand tour!


Thanx for the offer! But I've known and shopped at Bobe's many years ago. Before we lived here in B'ham, my wife and I lived in Mobile. I would often go over to Bobe's. I even remember their old store closer to downtown.

I've also "shopped" at Mr Johnson's store, but not in the P'cola. Most of the time it was at GATS shows where he was a vendor along with the guy I worked the shows with. I've ordered from both.
