Well this is my first "Rail Fan" forum board. I'm really new to this. As a kid I used to chase trains because I grew up only 1/2 mile from SOO Line's Shoreham switching yards in N.E. Minneapolis, MN. Back in those days, my dad and I would go for walks around the switch yard and watch them put trains together. We also would walk around inside the roundhouse and once in a while one of the engineers would even stop and give us a tour of his locomotive. Those days are gone forever, I guess. Now I've got kids of my own who are rail fans and they have me chasing down trains both real and model all over the State.

I also have a G-Scale, Garden Railroad layout on my property that the kids help me with--well sort of.... Here's a video of my last Open House:
