Susan Robinson of Red Bluff, California writes:
“We publish two hobby railroad magazines in a niche market. We reach people who either own commercial scale railroads (those large enough to ride in) or who own or are building their own private railways. Many people remember these trains from when they were children at amusement parks, drive-in theaters, or other promotional events and don’t realize that they can be involved in the hobby now.
“We have two web sites at GrandScales.com and 7PlusRailroader.com which are being updated with articles, letters from our readers, a press room, and more. We actively try to place articles in other publications. And we just concluded an event where our guests got hands-on experience laying track, running locomotives, attending seminars, and much more. But we still need to find ways to get the word out about this hobby and our company. Any ideas from other Hounds would be appreciated.”
