  1. September 25, 2016 will be a sad day for folks in the Denver area. That is the day that Caboose Hobbies will close its doors for the last time. This isn't just any brick and mortar hobby shop, his is the largest train store in the world. Its almost a ritual for members of the CMPA to bring out of state sculptors and painters to the store and watch them go wild at the number of things they find for basing and dioramas. I remember Jeremie Bonamont loading up on all kinds of things while he was here doing one of his US traveling tours. I think Michael Proctor ended up shipping a good chunk of it over to France for him. This is not a closing like we have seen in the past either where the business is being shut down for being poor. They do a very thriving online and in store business. In this case they are falling victim to progress as the area becomes more and more gentrified and the value of the land has now exceeded the value of the leases held by the landlord. The owners are simply retiring at this point. The current owner, the son of the original owner, has worked the store since 1969 and moved it to its current location in 1981. I'm hoping that maybe some of the employees will band together or someone will step in and buy it to keep it going, but that may just be a dream.
