I recently retired from a not-very-strenuous career as a computer programmer. I've always been interested in trains but never actively did much -- oh I had a Lionel set as a kid but never really did much with it. After viewing a 6 videocassette set that my deceased father-in-law had I purchased a couple of newer Pentrex DVDs and now I'm interested in trains, once again. I haven't been ON a train for 25 years and that was the Harlem line from POK to NYC.
Anyhow, hello from Tucson!
ETA . . .
BTW, which section (subforum) should I use to ask novice (and possibly irritating) questions about all aspects of trains?
Hey -- Tucson -- don't go! I want to give you
a VERY warm welcome to this great forum.
There are a lot of very nice people on here --
\just give them time and they will welcome
you too! (Monday morning at work keepin'
folks from posting??)
Anyhoo, please don't go! I always like to hear
from new people on this board!
What are your favorite RRs? Locomotives?:
Look forward to more of your postings!
Hmmm..I just now checked the date of
your first posting -- April 13! I, too, don't
understand why n o none else has welcomed
you. It is rather rare for people here to ignore
I myself have been a bit distracted -- following
the UP 844 and her mishap. But I check this
great forum a lot.
