    Cool :D !!

    Being born in Baltimore, MD a block over from the B&O RR Museum (which of course is where the turntable is) I find trains pretty fascinating.
    Thanks for the link. There's alot of reading of history there. :bow: :bow: !!

    I have a new fascination with them. After having N and HO guage when I was a kid, my dad and I had our fun with them. He just got his N guage going again (Donkey engine and coal tender w/ a few cars) so that lit the bug in me again also.
    I'm on the lookout for trains this year.

    I used to be BIG into trains - before I got my driver's license (14 years ago) - I have a crap load of HO stuff in my attic hidden away from my wife & kids. (1 & 4 yrs old)

    Maybe when they are much older I'll pull them out and set up a layout again...
