I'm a school teacher and have been for over 25 years. In fact, my class made a layout to commemorate Canada's 125th birthday back in 1992 and that's how I got my start in model railroading. Our layout was good enough to make Model Railroader in their July 1994 issue. We called our article "Trains 101"! I'm also married with two daughters. My wife is Lisa and my daughters Karen and Alison are both in university. When I'm not in my train room, you can find me in the garden or playing the piano or guitar!
