The narrow gauge bug bit me back in the late 1970s when my Dad took me to the Winter Spectacular at the East Broad Top Railroad. Since then, return trips to the EBT have been many. Even have had a chance to ride the Cumbres and Toltec and watch the Durango and Silverton switch in Silverton one Fall afternoon. However, books have allowed me to travel to many different narrow gauge railroads around the world. Discovered a lot of neat places and railroads along the way and building just one model railroad to capture all those interests just was not going to cut it. So, the long process of imagineering several model railroads to capture the things I like.
Standard gauge railroads are of interest as well. The list of standard gauge railroads includes such railroads as the New York, Ontario, and Western, Maryland and Pennsylvania, Stewartstown RR, Western Maryland, and the small railroads of the Delmarva Peninsula. My standard gauge interest has introduced me to the world of Proto48, finescale O scale. Opened yet another avenue of model railroad imagineering as well.
Thanks for logging in. Hope you enjoy the ramblings!
