About This Show
All modelers have a life but what do we know of it. This podcast is as much about the people in model railroading has it is about the hobby itself. I've met so many interesting people in the hobby over the years I decided it would be fun to share their back stories with everyone else.
So come along with me, Lionel Strang my trusty sidekick, Jim Rindt and Bruce the mail boy as we discover just how many fascinating folks there are in this great hobby.

Episode 66: Jim Sacco
1 day ago
I don’t remember how long we’ve known Joe Sacco but it’s a long time. His kits have been some of the best in the hobby for as long as I can remember, all of them are made in the USA and most of them are made in or near his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a model railroader with a fondness for urban structures, Jim felt the selection of existing structure kits in the eighties was rather small, so he decided to take a huge risk and go into the model railroad business. A great deal of time and research has been put into every kit, many of the structures are molded from hand made patterns that capture the look and feel of actual buildings. Jim takes great pride in our products and want them to be of the highest quality possible while still being affordable to modelers. And let’s not forget all the years Jim spent in drag racing. Enjoy!!
