    Me too. I grew up in the San Joaquin valley, lived in Stockton for 5 years, and then the SF bay area. Now I live in NW Washington.

    And I don't blame you for Stockton, in the late 1980s, it was all about gangs and urban sprawl in the NE...

    I think our next set up will be the train show at the Anaheim Convention Center on Dec 29-30. I'm planning to be there on the 29th. I probably won't make it on the 30th.

    Thankfully, we moved away from there last year! And yet I don't have to wish they all could be California girls, as I married one.

    No, really, I enjoyed my time in SoCal (La Mirada, Diamond Bar, Fullerton). I was also part of the Orange County Module Railroaders (like Russ, who introduced me to The Gauge) and really enjoyed all of the Modeling action. I especially enjoyed visiting Milepost 38 Model Trains. I've been back once since they moved to their new location and their new shop is even better than the last location. Can't wait to get back down there and visit family so I can spend my 'Milepost Money' I accrued with the last visit!

    Welcome to The Gauge, from a former SoCal modeler/railfan now living in Wild, Wet and Wonderful Washington State. (Hey, Bob Smaus left SoCal to come up here, and I'm wondering if his modeling interests will shift from SP to NP or even GN?)

    Grass Valley by way of Marysville by way of Montreal (that last one not California, but very much so in spirit). Love Northern California, but not crazy about the drivers in the LA and SF areas. Lots of rail activity in the
    Sac area, and we have a family membership in the California State Railroad Museum. Well worth visiting if you're ever in the area.

    Originally from the SF Bay Area, but the Army thought I'd be better off in Washington.
