Obnoxious dealer on my stink list

A while back I joined a model railroad chat group. Now it is my belief that the particular chat group I am talking about probably sells its members names to internet marketing companies. I say that because I noticed that shortly after I joined the group I started getting solicited by hobby dealers that I was unfamiliar with. Since I am a model railroad enthusiast the solicitations didn’t bother me. Then the solicitations began to increase. Now I am receiving several solicitations per day. One particular dealer sent three unique solicitations in one day. Now some of you are probably thinking just direct it to the spam filter. This I have done however the method they are using seems to be coded in such a way that they make it through. Anyway as a result of this obnoxious over the top “constant contact” I have come to dislike a particular dealer I have never met or dealt with. In forty years of enthusiasm for model trains and for hearing from those that deal in them I never thought the day would come when I would say enough is enough. Which brings me to this recollection, do you remember a while back when telemarketing reached its zenith in obnoxiousness. Anyway a guy named Tom Mabe took action and got justice that many of us benefited from if only vicariously. Never the less it felt good to hear Tom Mabe’s gotcha moment with one of those pesky telemarketers.

What a mess

Work continues on the Shasta Division.  So far little to show other than this mess
