I gave some info in my post which explains why I joined this group. I look forward to sharing / participating when I am able to. A quick intro about myself...I was born and raised in Miami, Fla and rode the Silver Meteor several times to Pittsburgh (transfer to B&O in D.C) in the early 60's. About fours years ago, I finally decided to focus my HO hobby to the SAL during the transition era. I have been collecting since high school off and on, but it's been more "on" these past five yrs. I will be taking over a bedroom (10 x 12) for my layout room, since my oldest son just purchased his first house and has vacated his room. (one down, one to go!) When my second son graduates college and moves out, I hope to knock down the wall between the two bedrooms, and expand my territory. This will have to be a joint merger of right-of-ways, as my wife seems to be right, and doesn't see things my way most of the time!... less

For the first 17 years of my life I lived 2 blocks down from SALs Charleston-Savannah mainline and my parents house sat smack-dab against the ACLs 9.75 mile Croghans branch. I'd really like to hear from others their experiences with the 3 lines.
Good morning TrainLife! Haven't been on all week as we have been dealing with the devastation down here in South Carolina. At least 19 dead and billions in flood damage and 100's of roads closed, including I-95 for about a 40 mile stretch, has had this state reeling. We are still dealing with rising flood waters and 13 dams burst alone with 75 being watched. Today it is raining with another two inches expected. With roads collapsing in numerous places it is an adventure just to get out. Haven't worked on the layout any this week but have taken next week off to assess things and to decide where the layout is going. Hope to post some pics soon.
Hello Everyone! It has been awhile since I have been on here, but once again I am back! lol There is a big show this weekend in Plano, Tx and I plan on going! Is anyone else going? Have a great day everyone!
Hey guys, its been a while since I've posted anything but I see nothing much has changed. I'm selling a few things, first on the block is a Kato GP35 (ATSF #2804) Kadee #5's installed, DC only, lightly used but has some dust on it, detail parts included but not on the model asking $80+shipping. Second is an Athearn RTR SW1500 (SOU #2300) TCS DCC installed, original McHenry couplers, only out of the box to test asking $85+shipping. Finally I have 4 pairs of Walthers couplers (the springless ones that come on the multi-packs) and a pair of Accumate couplers. Nothing wrong with them, just opted out for Kadee's and don't have a use for them. $.50 a pair plus shipping or all 4 of the Walthers for $1.50 plus shipping. Pictures of the locos are on flickr ( https://www.flickr.com/photos/124104914@N05/sets/72157645024145288/)
