A Blast from the Past!

Gene Smith from Smitty's Hobby Shop recently shared with Mark Stiver, Division Historian, a collection of photos of early members and activities of the Division and model railroading in the Dayton area. They came with minimal descriptions and documentation. If you can identify additional people or places in these pictures, please contact the Webmaster through the website or see Norm or Mark at any Division meeting.

W. C. Smith, year unknown. Check out that beautiful PRR Pacific!

Gene Smith, again year unknown, but it's obviously been a while. That Tru-Scale track was available in the 60's.
