GET ON THE TRAIN. Robi at Winds of Change seeks your assistance for the Baghdad Hobby Club, which has turned one of Saddam's palaces into a recreation center where some of the troops are working on a HO Scale layout.

AND there is apparently an O Gauge loop of track. (No, I don't know whether it's Lionel three-rail or Atlas two-rail. If anyone posted to the club can answer this, please give a shout out.)

The Hobby Club has commercial support from HobbyTown, USA, which references this War Department memorandum requesting civilian involvement. (Some donated items will be made available to a local youth center as well.)

Robi's post provides current contact information.

Send all donations to:

Sgt Dean Flyte
Baghdad Hobby Club
Camp Slayer
APO AE 09342

I think there's some Athearn HO in the basement that needs a warmer home.
