JD2035RR - Great topic! It's a good thing I didn't have to show my ID before reading this thread ... LOL!! ... because I'm way past the cut off point in years but certainly not in heart.
I've really enjoyed EVERYONE's posts and photos! Obviously" young guns" have great passion for this hobby as did and I and other Boomers who have loved & love this hobby so incredibly much since our childhoods. Reading everyone's wonderful posts/photos here is certainly most invigorating!
I think it would serve the hobby well if OGR would run a regular feature on younger modelers telling their stories and featuring photos of their collections/layouts.
I've always been of the mindset that model & toy trains is just not a Boomers thing. Over the years, I've consistently observed an abundance of families at train shows and holiday displays in my area. Kids and parents are curious and excited about trains! I see our hobby as having a bright future and this thread is further proof.
Model railroaders of all ages .... lets keep our imaginations going wild ... building, changing, and adding to our layouts. Lets keep those train running on time!!
