    I remember when I was informed of my replacement by my son and daughter. Now the only time I get to operate the trains is after they go to bed.

    Great pictures Chris of someone having a great time!

    Hey Chris, makes me yearn for the day when I get to be in your position. My son filled the position for several years but lost interest. (He always used to run the trains slowly, like Dad, maybe that's why he lost interest? Actually, me being computer illiterate and then going DCC had him reinterested for awhile, but my lack of willingness to spend the bucks required to go full bore (computer operated) killed that off, it seems. He did like operating the steam with sound when I first got it! Got a 1 month old grand daughter to try to influence in the future!
