I have been a collector/hobbyist as far back as I can recall. I have Ho Slot cars, Hot Wheels, Pepsi Memorabilia Comic Books and now N Gauge trains. I come by railroading quite honestly as my Father was a CN Police Constable, my aunt a Cook on Via, and One uncle an engineer, one a porter and my grandfather was a car man. I just wish I could afford to make a rather large layout however, keeping my children looked after takes precedence. I suppose it will have to wait until I'm Retired. Thankfully my wife supports my other love, my 71 Plymouth Satellite.
