Let me just add that since I got into the hobby in 2013 after retiring I could see that the hobby, just like us old guys, was fading away. I will say this, thank God for my backyard railway during this time of isolation and lock down. I would have gone out of my tiny little mind by now if I didn't have my trains snaking through my flowers and "hills". While I have enough engines right now and keep them lubricated and clean, I am concerned what will happen in later years if I have to replace track. The Aristo track and Piko turnouts are holding up well (Armor All?). Yes, Piko, LGB and Bachmann still make track. But for how long? Bachmann G scale, with a few exceptions, is in limbo. Looks like mostly NOS. When it's gone who knows?
