If ronniemac was 500 then I am 501!!!
Something about me....
Since I was a little kid, I wanted to have a model railroad layout.
Now that I am a big kid (40), I intend to build, with my sons, a
layout in our garage. We are planning a layout that is 8-10 feet
long, with a "L" that should be 3-5 feet long, possibly an "L" at
each end. It will be 2.5-3 feet deep. This might change!!!!! I can do
basic electrical work and build computers for relaxation. I also have
basic carpentry skills. Right now, I am doing research and looking
for local sources for the rolling stock. This is really an excuse for
us to hideout in the garage!!!!
Time to go, see ya!
