    Wayne, ever think about writing sexy novels? I don't know whether I should go find my wife, or play with my trains!:mrgreen:

    I missed the TRAINS articel about female engineers but did read the series last year by the woman who was a brakeman. It was an interesting description of hard work, odd experiences, hassles with some guys, support from others, and a few other quirky things.

    Growing up as an army brat I had to travel and make new friends a lot. The boys up until teenage didn't care if you were a girl. If you could hit a baseball
    or had a sled you were okay. I just feed the guys at work some cookies if they act up. One even asked me to join the baseball fantasy team. :-D

    I must live in a weird area. The girls out weight the boys 3 to 1 in model trains. My local LHS said that the Lionel PE express brought far more young girls into the hobby than he can ever remember.

    I only know of two. One is the wife of my LHS owner and O'm pretty sure she's in it for yje money making aspects. The other is the wife of another LSH. She's the "Train Brain" of the shop.

    I see them in the cab quite regularily on the BNSF coming out of the Alliance Yard north of Ft Worth. Both seats sometimes.

    I guess it's too late for me, I'd loved to ride along one day, some of the tourist trains let you if you pay extra.

    We have a few gaugers of the female persuasion. I've noticed that the modelling done by female modellers is nearly always better than the average male modeller.

    A few years ago there was a calendar of female railroaders (from Canada). At one show I helped a friend and his booth was right beside the calendar people, and they had a number of their models with them (no, not HO scale!)
