Thank You Veterans

11 11 2013

From war to peace, the 40 & 8 has been a fitting icon of the role of railroads and freedom.

In recognition of this special day, we’ll forego our usual product promotion to pause and say thank you to the countless men and women who have given so much for this great country. We wouldn’t be able to enjoy the simple pleasures of model trains without such great sacrifice. Thank you all for your service.

The railroads too have been an important part of our national defense and at times have even been a symbol of gratitude. For those looking for a little railroad connection to the spirit of this day of remembrance, take a look at our earlier blog on the famous “40 & 8“.
