    I used to live in Savanna, Ill. Chadwick is nearby, about half an hour; the population is less than 1,000 but the club has members from other towns. I now live retired in a metro area of about 170,000 and there's not a single model railroad club in any scale. And only one LHS. It just shows that bigger is not always better.
