Detroit News Article (Rearview Mirror)

Just perusing the Detroit News Website and I found a neat article on Toy Trains. Not especially localized to Standard Gauge, I actually just liked the pictures. It had the usual pablum about Lionel, Dick Kughn and so on. Stuff we all know and have heard way too many times.

This article also has a pictures link that has some interesting toy pics as well as a distinguished old hobby store I know I passed by as a kid.

Check out some of the other pics of Detroit in its' heyday. The trolley pics are exceptionally interesting. Before the auto companies, Detroit was a major town for trolleys and traction. Unfortunately the auto companies obliterated that concept out of existence. Funny considering the circumstances they find themselves in today.
