    Just figured I would say hi and tell a bit about myself.
    I have been a member for a little while. I am an N-scaler in the Central Ohio area. I am just getting back into trains after years of being out of it. My Grandfather got me into American Flyer and HO when I was a kid. Never really out grew them just had Life get in the way. Lol Now the kids are all grown and gone I have time and a little money again. Plus I have grandkids to get hooked on trains. I am working on a small 3X6ish layout. I like all types of trains Steam and Diesels. Not much else to tell. Thanks for reading.

    Hi Richard, or should I say "Ish". Anyhoo, Welcome. happy that you decided to come into the open. I hope you have a train museum or club where your grandkids can get as excited as you. If you're ever near the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we have a Model Railroad Museum that you and your G'Kids would love. The excitement on the faces of kids of all ages, 3-93, male and female, is wonderful. :X3:

    2 of the Grandkids (Granddaughter is 9 and Grandson is 7) love to run Grandpa's trains every time they come to visit. Grandson got a Lego train for Christmas. I think they are hooked. My other Grandson is 4 he just got a Thomas Train table. I am still working on the other 7 (All girls) Although the twins are only 15 months old. So I have plenty of time with them. LOL. We do have EnterTrainment Junction down near Cincy.

    We have loads of fun together. I always make time to be with them as often as I can. I figure they are my legacy. If they remember me and learn from me my life will have been worthwhile. I have so many fond memories of time spent with both of my Grandfathers. I always learned something with them. Just didn't realize I was learning. I tried to do the same with all my Kids and now with the Grandkids.
