FAREWELL KIRKWOOD HOBBY STATION

Trains are an important part of Kirkwood, Missouri . . .
from its early days in the 1800's
to its current freight and passenger routes.

And for the past 25 years,
this has included model train enthusiasts
shopping at Kirkwood Hobby Station,
just down the street from Kirkwood Train Station.

After 25 years in business,
Kirkwood Hobby Station is closing its doors.
Through the years, this popular hobby shop
has featured a variety of model trains (all gauges),
model kits for airplanes, boats, rockets and historic replicas.

How many of us will always remember
the electric train running 'round the tree on Christmas morning?
Thank you Kirkwood Hobby Station.

We shall miss you, and wish you well in your retirement.

  2. El modelismo es una afición muy bonita, lo que creo que es algo caro, un mundo en miniatura maravilloso, un abrazo Rick
