    Hello everyone,

    My name is Jonathan Spurlock (please, call me Jon) and I have to thank Charlie for all the help in getting a long-dormant account reactivated. Not exactly sure what you would like to know but here are a few things:

    Born and raised near Huntington, WV and a dyed in the wool B&O/C&O/N&W fan; currently living in central MO close to UP's main line; before that, lived in Iowa for three years and acquired a strong admiration for the Iowa Interstate, ICE/DME before the re-takeover and re-boot of these lines; and thoroughly enjoy taking pictures of trains even to this day. Oh yeah, happily married, too, since 1998 to a gal from central MO. She's a keeper!

    Someday I would love to take my blue-box Athearn HO stuff out of the mothballs and back onto a layout. Maybe. N scale gives a lot more operation in a lot less space; hard to beat the heft of O or G scale, though. Anyway, let me get this on the way. Best wishes and best of success to you all.

    Hi Jon, Welcome back. Agree that N gives more room for creativity, and that O has a great heft. But HO is an excellent compromise with more options on the market, plus you apparently have a good start on the shelf.

    Welcome back, Jon. I have great memories of Huntington, WV, riding the New River Train.
