"It's a great hobby that combines history, electricity, woodworking, painting and landscaping," says George Hoffer, a University of Richmond economics professor and transportation expert.
He's been an American Flyer fan since he was a boy but fears the hobby he deeply loves is dying. "Not many people see trains much anymore, and kids are busy with computers," he says. Hoffer is a proud member of the Virginia Train Collectors, which meets monthly in Chesterfield or Henrico counties along with other areas. The group records members' projects and the histories of the lines they model. The next meeting was scheduled for the Knights of Columbus Council 6189's Bishop Ireton Center in Chesterfield on March 1. "Model trains really reached their peak just after World War II," says Hoffer, especially in an area that ran from the Midwest to mid-Atlantic. Hoffer agrees: "Lionel is making new hand controls that look more like computer controls.

George Hoffer, an economics professor at the University of Richmond, grew up in Lakeside in the 1950s.
"It was Beaver Cleaver Land," says Hoffer, whose father ran a general store in Lakeside. "The mothers didn't work. The fathers made enough." Many Lakeside residents worked for the railroad at the nearby Acca Yard. Hoffer describes the area back then as predominantly Protestant whites with a handful of African-American enclaves. "Lakeside has never had an underclass," Hoffer says. Hoffer acknowledges that the Lakeside of his youth was working-class, but says Casey's observation might be an overstatement. "I would characterize that as just a little bit demeaning. I'd put it one notch above that," Hoffer says. According to Hoffer, as Richmond's suburbs grew to the west and south of the city, Lakeside was largely passed over. With a younger generation looking for affordable, well-constructed homes close to downtown, the area has become increasingly attractive. "The area never appreciated in value. The homes for the most part are post-World War II homes on a moderate-sized lot," Hoffer says.
