Hi All, I am a brand spanking new member. I was born and raised in Tonopah, Nevada and I model the Tonopah & Goldfield Railroad in central Nevada. My great grandfather (mother's side) worked for the railroad as Chief Auditor and later Traffic Manager. My father and his father worked for the SP Lucin Division in Montello, Nevada. My grandfather retired from the SP and my father worked for the SP until being drafted in WW II. After the war my father moved to Tonopah. I also belong to the Galveston County Model RR Club in Texas City. We have a large 30' X 60' permanent N layout and a traveling N layout which is 4' X 30'. The club also has a large HO layout, Lionel, Z and a G layout. I am retired USCG and living in League City, Texas, just south of Houston. I found the site by asking a question on google about wiring the Model Power Vandy tender to the Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0. Good ideas and I'm off to the races. I also am a member of other n scale message boards.
