Dollar value

Rupert & Maureen <gamlenz@...>


The reduced value of the dollar (and increase in the price of imported kits/RTR) could be the encouragement needed to stimulate local model manufacturing industry. It also makes my next trip to the BRHS Annual Meet more affordable!

Merry Christmas and try to have a great New Year

Yeah, Schuyler, but at the rate the dollar is going down the drain
relative to almost anyone else's currency, $2.00 will soon be worth
about what it was in the 1940s thanks to....
And you can bet that the cost of
model railroad stuff that's made overseas will go up substantially in
2008 as the dollar continues its free fall >
On that happy note, Merry Holiday of your Choice to all.
