I started my present layout in 1996. It represents the SP in Northern California in the transition period. It is a 10' x 20' garage layout. I worked on it off and on as much as I could and it is as close to finished as it will ever be. Maintenance and additions to the rolling stock and engine power are an on-going interest. I'm in my late sixties now (2016) and this railroad is the culmination of many years of wanting the space and time to accomplish this little railroad. This hobby has been a wonderful outlet for my creative urges because of the many aspects of the hobby and the growth of my capabilities when building this railroad required me to learn new skills. Wonderful hobby! If you are interested I have a You Tube Channel (mgmmcdaniel) where I share some videos of my layout.
