It’s time for our annual state of the hobby address with Joe Fugate, editor and publisher of Model Railroad Hobbyist. I was sure we’d been doing this for several years but Joe was convinced it was only our second time.
We covered all sorts of interesting subjects and Joe was an excellent guest as always.
So sit back with a steaming hot bowl of cookie dough ice cream and enjoy Episode #40, Joe Fugate.

ViewerMail Flight #28 – I can’t for the life of me figure out what the American Motors Corporation was thinking when they designed the Pacer. But nevertheless here’s another valuable AML show as we once again motivate modelers all over the globe to work on their layouts.
ViewerMail is similar to the Swedish delicacy Surstromming, a Baltic Sea herring fermented with just enough salt used to prevent it from rotting. When opened it releases such a pungent aroma that it usually needs to be eaten outside. Sounds about right.
