When Mike Tebolt gave up his paper route, there was another job waiting for him — repairing model railroad trains, working for a train store in his hometown of New Rochelle. That was back in the 1950s, and he’s been doing it ever since, though he also logged a career at IBM, retiring in 1991.
Sunday, Tebolt was the train doctor at the New Year’s Toy and Train Show, put on by the Mountain Toy and Railroad Club at the American Legion Post in Hudson.
