I have been a model railroader since I was seven years old. I have had many layouts (all HO) which have been abandoned due to military or civilian relocation. The latest was started in August of 2014 and is probably my last hoorah due to age. It is a single deck 12 x 14 foot open girder pre WWII steam era desert & mountain themed DCC (NCE) freight enterprise. I am trying to "make it all by the book" this time around and I am taking my time with it. At this point I have much of the Code 83 track down and hope to actually run trains for my grandson before Christmas (this year, thank you).
