Help Me Find Old RR Magazine Vendor

Post by Elmer Beachl » Tue, 05 Oct 1993 10:39:41



At a recent Great Scale Train Show in Timonium MD. I talked
to a vendor who had boxes and boxes of old model railroad magazines.

Now that I'm looking to find some issues of Model Railroader from 1973,
I'd like to call this guy but have misplaced his flyer.

If anyone knows the phone number of this guy or any similar dealer,
I'd appreciate an e-mail.

Thanks,

There's a guy that I've purchased a lot of mags from: Earl Stephans.
He writes a monthly column for Model RailroadING magazine called
"Rail Project Research", so you can find his name there...

I don't know the guy you are looking for, but these old magazines are around
in many of the better hobby shops.  THE TRAIN SHOP in Santa Clara, CA has
a good selection going back to the 1950s, most are $0.50 or $1.00 each.
They place ads in MR, but you can call information in California to get their
number.  They are not really a mail-order place, but I have called them
in the past (I live in Pennsylvania) and sweet-talked them into sending me
items that I had trouble finding (sweet-talk = "offer them money").

Seriously, they are a nice bunch of guys and they'll help you out.

Good Luck... Max Magliaro
