Alvie here. I'm building my first layout! It's a 2.5x8 shelf layout I've put together to showcase craftsman building kits, and a collection of plastic and brass train models. My main hobby interests are the railroads of upstate New York and New England in the early '50s. My collection is mainly Boston & Maine, love those maroon and yellow diesels, plus New York Central, as I love those the Hudsons.
