Farewell G&G Trains

Another shop closes. Just got the news last night. The mostly N scale G&G trains of Leslie Michigan is no more. Gary & Mike decided to call it quits for many reasons. The inventory has been bought up and the shelves are gone. Those of you who saw them at the Ft. Wayne and Mt. Pleasant shows saw their last appearances. N scalers throughout the region will miss them dearly. Farewell good friends.

(I suggested they should have waited for April 1st for greater effect.)
Buffering...

That stinks. They were my go-to for everything when I was an intern at the Jackson, Mich. newspaper. I also enjoyed seeing them at shows here in Ohio.

Was just out there weekend before last, Gary didn't say a word about the deal :-XThey will be missed to be sure (was nice only having to drive 15 miles for my "train fix")

I do know he has been wanting to put the motorcoach to better use than just keeping the snow off the driveway  :facepalm:
