What Mikey said, though I'm not Canadian. Though I spend enough time there. Those are great photos; thanks for sharing. I hope that this site is a gateway for you to a broader enjoyment of horology. I know Gruen is what got me going with the hobby from both the collecting and the repairing side.

by the way... in my past career, I worked for Union Tank Car Company (in Chicago) and went to the facility in Altoona frequently. It was part of the old Penn RR shops in downtown. I like the town and the area very much. One of my all-time favorite bars is in Altoona and we (the plant staff and I) got half of our work done in there over dinner and beers, which made the actually work in the shops go much more smoothly.

Peace!


All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
