Gentlemen, This looks like a great forum! There are so many out there that one could spend all of their “hobby time” punching stuff into forums. Since I like to run trains, operate and work on my railroad I thought I’d pick a forum and stick with it for a while. On the other hand I also find forums interesting and fun so here I am - at “The Gauge”. My railroad is a mythical short line between Alpine and Terlingua, TX (75miles +/-). It is set in the 1920's and is ALL steam. It interchanges with the Southern Pacific at Alpine. The main sources of traffic are lumber, cinnabar (mercury), livestock, and general merchandise. I’ve been a model rail since the days of “Varney” ( you chronologically challenged modelers will know what that means).
