    Model Train Shows: Are They Good or Bad For The Hobby?

    in Hobbies

    This time on the APRHF's Let's Talk Trains Show we will take a look at Model Train Shows. 


    We will ask you, the listeners, what makes a great train show? What makes a bad one? Does having a swap meet at the show, make the show feet cheap? Why are there not more manufacturers's coming to the shows Should model train shows be produced by for-profit companies instead of the local clubs or historical associations? Should there be more regional cooperation between organizations? Should we just have swap meets and then do a show with just model trains? Should we let attendees operate displays? 


    Call in at 646-716-7106 and give your views.

    Model Railroading in the 21st Century

    in Hobbies

    Model Railroading has been a popular hobby for many decades. This week, Kansas City Nathan, a model railroader himself, will be discussing the Model Railroading in the 21st Century.


    Long gone are the cracker-jack boxcars or half-hearted attempts to create quality locomotives and other rolling stock. Today, we have highly detailed models that are ready-to-run and highly detailed, to the point that rivet-counters are drooling! A newcomer to the hobby is 3D printing.


    This and much more will be discussed, we invite you to join in the conversation by calling 646-716-7106.

    Ms.P Chat With Model And Motivational Speaker Jaii Starr

    in Women

    A Legend was born on the 24th of August in Camden, New Jersey. Jaii was raised in the streets of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania then the suburbs of Bergen County, New Jersey. She is Puerto Rican and speaks English and Spanish. This Starr is an adventure seeker and always looking for an adrenaline rush. Loves animals and to her music is everything.


    Jaii Starr is a U.S. Army Military Police Veteran turned Model and Motivational Speaker. She sets out with the goal to reach out to anyone who is different just like her and let them know that he or she is not alone; instilling in those that nothing should stand in the way of their dreams. As Jaii likes to say, "Why tip toe through life to arrive safely at death...? Impossible is easy.”


    Who is Jaii Starr?


    "Well that is a great question. Jaii Starr is me, just finding myself, wanting better for myself and others as well. My true aspiration is happiness and I judge my success by how many others I can get to join me on this new journey of mine, on thinking more positively about life. Making others see how amazing life can actually be. We all choose our own paths, it's up to us to use the beauty that is already all around us to create something even more beautiful. I am all about embracing different, embracing unique, not conforming to what society thinks life should be for me. I have my own definition of normalcy and it's  absolutely crazy but, that is okay with me because I am in love with the person who I am becoming. Which is something I am hoping to instill in all of those who follow me. Do not sleep on your dreams, strive for them, because anything and everything is possible. Sure, life can be a constant struggle but, we are all warriors in our own way. Each day you wake up, just know, you have already conquered another day."
