I think a good bucket list item would be a trip to see all of the amazing layouts of all the guys on this forum. Kind of like seeing a baseball game in every stadium around the country.
So I started a list;
Michigan- Train Room Gary (I never turn down a lunch invite)
Ohio- Brian, Clem, and Paul2
Illinois- Art (Chugman)
Seattle and Pennsylvania- Mike and Mark- I'll bring my tools and we can knock out your layouts in no time. Lee- P51 too while I'm on the west coast.
Maryland- Patrick Trumptrain
Arkansas- M. Mitch.Marmell- I need to meet Fortesque in person
Locally Pat - St. James MRRC , and LI Steamer TMB Train Club, Arnold, Skip and SIRT.
Need to do more research on the dozens of awesome layouts, so many trains so little time
