I have always loved trains, especially the smelly, noisy steamers. Never had a layout until after I retired. I am now working on an HO, late 40's, early 50's , freelance , 16' x 18' U shaped layout.
As my screen name would imply, I also am a woodcarver. My avatar is one of my carvings. If you are interested you can see some of my other woodcarvings at jimcarves.weebly.com.
