FYA, the Charles Ro Supply Company in Malden MA adverises itself as one of America's largest model train stores.

My wife and I have frequently gone dining and/or dancing in Malden, and saw it en route. I have a new colleague at work and I learned he had previously lived in Malden. When I told him we went there on almost every Saturday night, he replied, "Nobody goes to Malden."

Back in 2014, I posted to this thread:

To me it resembles a speakeasy because behind that industrial looking door inside the Jackson Street parking structure is a festive and well-appointed ballroom, with live music, a great dance floor, and cheap but good drinks. Just say, “Jim sent me.”

Unfortunately, the joint closed in 2017, but three of our favorite restaurants are still in Malden.
