Myles, When I got into management, starting with Fluor Daniel in 1997, it was in Safety and I, too, did a lot of Safety training on plant operating and working in hazardous environments. My experience in the craft and hands on years of work were invaluable. Recently retired from SAIC as Safety Manager after 15 yrs on many various sites all over our great nation, from Georgia to Nevada, Pennsylvania to Oklahoma, and all in between. One advantage was the capability to find and purchase trains from all over the country as well as knowing the fine individuals everywhere. This includes helping to establish an O Gauge Model RR Club out of Antioch, Illinois when working the Great Lakes Naval Center. And, seeing different rail roads and train consists from various regions.
