I am a former electronics engineer having worked in satellite launch operations for Hughes Aircraft Co. I travelled world wide for 20 years building satellite tracking stations and launching communications satellites.
Now i am a full time web monkey and part time photographer and no more travel! ;=]
Have been into model railroading since I was a child back in the early 60s. We had a large Lionel Super O gauge and Standard gauge setup in the basement when we lived in New Jersey. Unfortunately when we moved to California in 1964 we had to sell the trains as there were no basements in California.
The train bug never left and when I discovered the Southern California Live Steamers just around the corner from where I work, the bug bit me again.
I currently have a 3.75" scale Roll Models Prairie 2-6-2 oil fired steam locomotive under construction. Hopefully it will be finished before I am. :)
