Superintendent’s Page - February 2019
THANKS FOR MANY YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE HOBBY!
After over 20 years, Jim Smith closed Sunset Junction Hobbies in Spokane on February 2. Facing the sale of the building, he has achieved the status of many of the rest of us—he’s retired.
If you did not have a chance to visit Jim’s store before its closing, you will be able to see Jim at the March 10 Spring Model Train Show in Spokane.
We are sorry to see Sunset Junction depart our division, but are extremely thankful for Jim and the late Bob Sample, Sunset Junction’s previous owner, and their contributions to the growth of the hobby in the Inland Empire.
