Post events or activities that you will be attending, rail fanning or anything train related that may present the opportunity for members to get together, meet and share the experience. For example: I live near English's Train Shop and many people travel to visit this large hobby shop. If you are making a hobby shop road trip to English's let me know any we can meet up for some train shopping. less

My Grandparents rest their souls, imigrated here during the first world war fro Ukraine to Minersville PA just south of Hazelton. Makarick/Kazoura. Granp worked wherelse in the coal mines. Then they bought a farm in Flemington NJ
with help from relatives that imigrated to NYC and wanted a summer get away thus the farm was born , that was already had established when I was born. I miss the gatherings , picnics love that was there in a big famly gathering . I remember the PRR and the Steam Locos at Flemington Station when I was a boy, and I miss those days! I also miss the PENN CENTRAL spent many a day train watching in Morrisville PA at the terminal yards and watching the hump yard, that was facinating to watch a car come off the hump get auto sorted and bang into it's new consist then another then another, boy sure wish I could relive those days. less
Anyone in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area?
I want to start a modular rail group.
Didn't bother with trains or anything else for a while, but After finding the light again and getting out of the dark I am finally back to my old self. Now a decision I can't make is which locomotive I want. A CR SD80Mac, CSX SD70M, or a CSX AC60CW. They are all Overland models. I can't decide!
Well, after 12 years of construction, I'm tearing down my HO layout. I'm getting relocated to North Carolina (may be even more absent than normal here for a while). Busy pulling up rails and Tortoises, packing trains and tearing out plywood to get the house ready to show by the end of the month. The good news... land and homes are cheaper down there. Conrail's Pittsburgh Division will be back and larger than before. The tear down has actually been somewhat enjoyable so far - seeing parts of the railroad I haven't in years and lots of good memories. Plus there's the planning for that new 40x120' project to come...
Just found out I am going to be off the weekend of the Great Scale Model Train Show in Timonium MD. This will be my 8th year going. Great show cant wait!
Well I am finally sitting down to relax. Rotten day at work! The bad part is that this is the second day of a ten day stretch! So I am going to make some coal loads tonight. Nothing says stress relief like model railroading!
Any one good with DCC particularly Digitrax? I am having a problem with my DCS 100, it is shorting out even when not hooked to the track.
