That's very interesting. Saw some old friends in amongst all the new ones.
What the world needs is another Bernie Paul!
I spoke to Ray Garcia (formerly of AHM/IHC) at the Greenberg show about 4 years ago, and he said that Mehano was after him their US importer (he had worked with them closely, and was behind the push for locos like the higher quality steamers and the GG1). But he's at a point in his life where he doesn't want the headache, so he & Joe just sell from their massive parts stock at train shows within a certain radius of Philly, which is where they live.
Last I saw them they had also bought up a lot of Model Power stock, which included lots of Mantua Classics parts.
rbturner: So Jerry, how did the Pack do yesterday?

JNXT 7707: Another W Randy. Next up, Chicago. GO PACK GO

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Ditto for the Steelers. Yeah 2 and 3! Now we're cooking with gas! It's amazing that when Roethlisberger won his first Superbowl ring, some of his offensive line were in diapers and pre-school!

JNXT 7707: You keep painting targets for me, JF

yardmaster54: Are you kidding Randy. Your such a big packer fan and yet you have to ask how they did? I guess that's a typical packer fan. GO COWBOYS!!!

JNXT 7707: Somehow I knew YM would pop out of the box

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Just crank the handle on the box, listen to some carnival music and then "Woody the Cowboy" and the Slinky Dog pop out of the box yelling, "Go Cowboys"!

rbturner: I am not a Packer fan exactly but am a super Jerry fan.

yardmaster54: Some of you guys should've been comedians.

yardmaster54: Randy, we all have our faults.

newbieho: LOL! It is so much fun watching you guys!

yardmaster54: Laughter IS the best medicine.
Oct 13, 2021 19:20:28 GMT -5
umpdan31: I'm cracking up. Laughter is all I have in this football season. The Eagles offensive scheme sucks. Why have any running backs when all you do is throw, throw, throw. Opposing teams are ready for that.. RPOs are fine, but don't use them all the time.

yardmaster54: Dan maybe you should fly like an eagle into the future, things may be better.

yardmaster54: 57° here in central Ohio. Its great.
