I retired a short time ago and have been reacquainting myself with the hobbies I put on hold so long ago. Playing saxophone, woodworking, and a few others. My only connection to railroading was playing with the Marx Commodore Vanderbuilt from my Mother's house and riding my bicycle over the numerous tracks around Carlisle. I was quite surprised when I found out how complex the engines have become. I try to frequent the PA/MD area swap meet and purchase what I like such as a Schnabel car with U.S. Steel girders. My Father once worked for the Bridge Division. So when I get to creating a layout I want to feature whatever strikes me such as the last passenger train through Carlisle. I also included a few pictures of my first completed project. It was my first attempt with decals and reminded me why I didn't like painting my models as a kid.
Thanks for letting me join!
