Let me be first to go to bat for my buddies on here, though he don't really need me to do that. On or off this forum, here's one guy that's always helping some body ! I've been with him in hobby shops, train shows, wherever theres someone looking at trains, he's helping them, & within minutes, he's invited them over to his house to help them some more. He's an Industrial Engineer, a former College teacher, for race driver in top fuel dragsters racing with the best of them years ago. He's highly qualified to help those in need on this forum, right along with some of the other great ones we have here, like Lionelsoni & Roy Mc Clellen to name just a few ! I'm talkin about Spankybird, & this forum ! I don't care what the other forums have. "We got it all right here" !
Thanks Tom , & all you others that know your stuff !!
