Archaeologist in Cincinnati, Ohio. I was an HO modeler 20 years ago, then took a long break from the hobby. Recently (ca. 2015) began getting involved again, this time in N scale to take advantage of what little layout space I have. 2016 saw me suddenly discover the amazing potential of DCC, which was only just beginning to emerge when I was last an active model railroader. Presently, I'm partly through construction of an N scale, Lehigh Valley inspired N scale DCC around-the-room layout, and beginning to look forward to operations.
