Kris Rich's Hobbytowne Boxcar

Rich's Hobbytowne received national attention in 1964 when Walter Cronkite, anchor of the CBS Evening News, visited the shop and interviewed the owner. A "Rich's Hobby Town" boxcar is listed, but not described, in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains. Photo courtesy of the M. Smith collection.
