Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early

have probably seen Fahnestock
clips, but did you know that's what they were called? Me neither, until I first
saw the name of them on a page in a MicroMark
catalog a while back. When I ran across this advertisement in a 1947 issue of
Radio News magazine, it seemed like a good opportunity pass the revelation
Model train enthusiasts must not use Fahnestock clips as much anymore for wiring
their layouts since there are more modern quick-change type terminal connections
available. MicroMark does not sell them anymore, but you can still get some from
Newark Electronics and other online sellers. Maybe the ones sitting in my parts
drawer will one day be worth big $$$ to collectors (just kidding).
