I think that the differing versions of "spotting" are most likely to be in serious decline as hanging around stations or airports seems to be discouraged or even impossible these days and as Dave has said the "nerdy anorak" image added onto that just seems to me to be terminal.

That said I don't think that modelling is in the same state - there will be challenges in getting youngsters involved (or sufficent interest to come back to it later) but there is enough going on to keep all sorts of folk interested. I have a sneaking suspicion that the younger folks' interests may lie with DCC and more modern image rather than hankering back to the days of steam but I will wait to get shot to bits on that view - it just depends upon what catches your personal imagination.

Doomed? Personally I don't think so.
