    For the past year I’ve been compiling a list of model train stores for my model railroading website. These shops all look like a lot of fun to visit, but what are the most popular? Here is a list for the states of Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey.

    The most popular model railroading shops (based on online chatter) in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey are:

    10. Ridgefield Hobby in Ridgefield, New Jersey

    9. Maplewood Hobby in Maplewood, New Jersey

    8. M. B. Klein Model Train Stuff in Cockeysville, Maryland

    7. Tony’s Train Town in Cedar Grove, New Jersey

    6. MTH Electric Trains in Columbia, Maryland

    5. Hobbymasters in Red Bank, New Jersey

    4. The Model Railroad Shop in Piscataway, New Jersey

    3. The Train Station in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

    2. Toy Train Emporium in Cherry Hill, New Jersey

    …and the most popular shop for model trains in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey is…

    1. The Hobby Shop in Aberdeen, New Jersey

    Hobby shops not quite making my top 10 were Just Trains in Newark, Delaware; Millsboro Hobbies in Millsboro, Delaware; Seaside Hobbies in Ocean View, Delaware; Engine House Hobbies in Gaithersburg, Maryland; G Scale Train Station in Waldorf, Maryland; Hobby Works in Rockville, Laurel, and Bel Air, Maryland; The Train Room in Hagerstown, Maryland; Atlantic Rails in Folsom, New Jersey; Genes Train Stop in Kearny, New Jersey; Island Trains in Middletown, New Jersey; Pastime Hobbies and Miniatures in Bayonne, New Jersey; Z and Z Hobbies in Mercerville, New Jersey; Zeppelin Hobbies and Raceway in Wayne, New Jersey.

    So, there are lots of great model railroading shops from all over Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey but clearly New Jersey dominated the list with eigth in the top ten. Maryland had two inthe ten, and Just Trains in Delaware just missed out. Note that this list was for the train stores more than their online web stores. If this list were for online stores www.modeltrainstuff.com, the website of M. B. Klein Model Train Stuff, would probably have won.

    When in Delaware, Maryland, or New Jersey be sure to visit some of the excellent railroading museums including Harrington Museum and Railroad Museum in Harrington, Delaware; Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland; Brunswick Railroad Museum in Brunswick, Maryland; Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum in Hagerstown, Maryland; Huntington Railroad Museum in Bowie, Maryland; New Jersey Museum of Transportation in Wall, New Jersey; Whippany Railway Museum in Whippany, New Jersey; and South Jersey Railroad Museum in Tuckahoe, New Jersey.

    I compiled this list by searching for the hobby shops listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online. I further screened this list to include only pages that mentioned model railroading.

    The Clutch Bags

    Women who carry clutch bags are confident enough not to worry about carrying their whole life in their bag. These are ladies who can get through the day without their entire life being by their side. They are able to streamline, knowing exactly what they need out of life and are not afraid to let someone else carry their keys or whatever else won’t fit in their bag.

    The Designer Bags

    Women who go gaga over designer bags usually love the good life. The want luxury, fashion, champagne, caviar etc. They live for labels. Sometimes they lack self confidence and that is why they use designer bags to do the talking for them. The designer bags show that you have money and dont mind spending it! The woman who carried this bag can take on the persona of the designer, becoming a rock star or a fashion model!

    The Tote Bags

    Tote bags often represent women who are fun loving and practical. Pendersen says the wearer is youthful in outlook, with things to do and places to go. Tote carriers are often refined, lead busy lives, unobtrusive but definitely not passive.

    The Shoulder Bags

    Women who wear shoulder bags are practical but also want to look good. Wearers tend to be even-keeled decision makers. According to Stephanie Pendersen in her book Handbags – What Every Woman Should Know (David & Charles 2006), “”women who prefer shoulder bags refuse to be a fashion victim””.

    The Duffle Bags

    The duffle bag was originally a sports bag and could accommodate a change of clothes, balls, etc. the bag is for the woman that needs everything with her, but wants it to be secure. These women are caring and sensitive and carry a multitude of items which are useful to others. Medicines, band aids, mints, chewing gum, perfume, tissues, safety pins and other practical items.

    Whoever said that diamonds are a girls best friend got it all wrong; ladies handbags are most definitely a girls best friend. They carry their world in them. Every girl or woman you will come across will always have some sort of bag with her, be it cloth bags, leather bags or downright dramatic bags.

    Poster discounts, the law of attraction and the reinforcement of corporate values – what do these three have in common? What is the relation of the law of attraction to reinforcement of corporate values and to poster discounts?

    According to the Law of Attraction, writing down what you desire on paper, coupled with positive affirmation and visualization through will lead to action and manifestation.

    Corporate values and mission statements are usually printed and displayed in conspicuous places within the company. Following the law of attraction, printing of these values act as what you desire on paper. Similarly, displaying them in places inside your office premises, allows employees to see your posters as a vision board. When employees see these frames everyday, coupled with reminders from HR or business owners, reinforcement of corporate values to employees would result to achieving what those missions and values are.

Vision boards are physical reminders of what the company wants to achieve. And this is where the posters come in. Business owners can use posters to physically remind the employees of the corporate values the company have. In addition, most online printing companies offer these posters at discounted prices. Thus, spending on these will not cost an arm and a leg. The poster discounts offered by online printing companies give substantial savings to the business owners and their companies.

    Can you see the relation of the law of attraction to corporate reinforcement and poster discounts? Business owners would naturally want savings on their overhead expenses. The best way to achieve this is through poster deep discount codes that business owners get from reputable coupon sites or through individual sites of online printing companies. Printers offer discounts for the majority of their products including business cards, brochures and postcards. Business owners can redeem the codes through the coupon sites or through one of these printers’ sites and upon check out, you automatically get the savings you need. That too is a manifestation of the business owner’s desire for savings.

Open my lively wardrobe, and numerous designer bags like Louis Vuitton handbags, Chanel Handbags also Dior handbags will slip into your sight instantly. They are without my favorite. And among numerous designer bags, three of the cheap designer bags, I especially take in pride of owing. See together, girls, quickly!

    1. LV handbags
    My favorite Louis Vuitton bags are the Louis Vuitton Rosewood bags which combines patent leather, embossed with Monogram flower and natural leather. Also it features comfortable adjustable handles for carrying it on the shoulder and a zipper closure.

    You all may also take interest in its material. The Replica Louis Vuitton bags are made of Embossed patent leather, (you know very popular at present), natural cowhide trimmings and textile lining. Besides, its adjustable natural cowhide handles are also my favorite. Different my other Louis Vuitton bags, the replica LV bags could be carried on the shoulder. Make you look pretty mature, also become the focus in public.

    2. Dior Babe Python Frame Bag
    It could be said that the Dior handbags are perfect for the chicest girls, crafted in exquisite python in a double-frame style. Cunning detachable matching coin purse and a single six-inch top handle. Still craving more luxury? This bag is lined in soft suede, and features a convenient magnetic flap closure (to keep your treasures safe inside). Wear this with your tallest gold peep-toe sandals, and a sleek New York ponytail.

    3.Dior Le 30 Medium Tote
    Available in two colors, glossy black and latte-with-cream “pigeon, “this sweet tote is all stylish, bang-on details. By the way, I dislike the black color, a little dull, so the Dior bag lie in my wardrobe is the latte-with-cream. I love the convenience of the snap closure, and the two open inner pockets and single, smaller zippered pocket. Add metal feet and a pair of chain-link straps and voila!

    Oh, you may think I must be vey rich that could afford so many branded bags. Exactly speaking, I do not want to cost so much on a fashion bag. I suppose sometimes we have no need to do so. With the huge money that cost on a designer bag, we could do many other significant things. So no doubt, any of the Designer bags in my wardrobe are replica bags. Of course, I never feel embarrassed for carrying the replica Dior bags, Replica Chanel bags and Replica LV bags. And to the opposite, I consider it to be wise, a wise decision.
