In an article in the Huntsville Times, Dick Metzger "decided to come out of the closet; I'm a grown man, and I play with trains," Metzger, proprietor of Southerland Station toy and hobby shop, said. "I had no idea that there were so many people in Huntsville who loved electric trains as much as I did."
Mr. Metzger has an open house every year with two rooms of train displays, a lego train room, snacks and an appearance from Hello Kitty. That would seal it for me.
Here's information on the open house.
