    I just got back from a little day trip to Chelmsford,Mass.I had a reason to go there so I didnt realy wast a trip.

    In the latest issue of RMC there was a listing for a train store there in town about 5 miles from my original destination.The ad said that the store was open from 10 to 6 Monday + Tuesday. I got there and a sign on the door said closed Sunday and Monday.Well I wasn't to upset since I needed to be in Chelmsford anyways.

    To make a long story short I would have traveled 142 miles round trip if I wasn't already there.

    Now I'm one of these guys that if I'm going somewhere I look to see if theres a train store there.Most of the time I'll just jump in the truck with magizine in hand and pick one out.

    From now on I will be calling ahead.

    I had a similar situation last year when we went to Tennessee. There's a hobby shop in Pigeon Forge that I wanted to visit while we were in the area, but it turned out that they were in the process of moving while we were there...
