  • I'm a 1st generation German-American, and "Rassig" means "racey" or "stylish" or "of a breed". When I was a kid I saw some Illinois Central streamliners, like the Panama Limited, and they impressed me with their speed and style. BTW, it's also the license plate on my VW GTI ! [:)]

    TMCC MAN is my user name because of the Lionel T=Train, M=Master, C=Command, and C=Control. I just put man at the end, even though I am 15.

    15 years old but with "all hail the great PRR" on your posts? I bearly remember the Pennsy and I'm...well, never mind exactly-but WAY older than 15. It's reassuring to know that the Standard Railroad of the World has another generation of rightful admirerers!

    Well, I have always admired the PRR, especially because I hear great stories from the PRR's employees that I know very well. I have heard work train stories, all the way to derailments. So, that is why I think the PRR was the greatest RR.

  • I chose 'n2mopac' because 1) I moden in 'n' scale, and 2) I grew up along the mopac and, when I first joint this forum 5 years ago, I modeled mopac. I do not model mopac any longer as my new layout (under construction) represents a modern BNSF sub in north Texas. MoPac will always be my first love, however, and I still collect memorabelia and such from the old flaming chicken line. So I guess you could say that I am still in to MoPac (n2mopac).

  • I started out with the name "wisser" because that was the name of my sisters computer and her last name. I didn't have internet on my computer. Last year I changed it to my name.
  • Because "MongoLikeCandy" wasnt avalable at the time and I was convinced "Beeblebrox" would draw the ire of religious crazies thinking I was one of Ol' Nicks little wizards...

    PS : Beeblebrox, as in Zaphod Beeblebrox, the two headed, three armed ex-confidence trickster and part time Galactic President from that ever usefull book, "The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy"
