Why am I a model Railroader??
Like a lot of people, I have always been fascinated by trains of all sorts; steam, diesel,electric(traction), freight or passenger, narrow guage or standard.
Basically, if it runs on rails, I like it!
Model railroading as a hobby provides a rich variety of areas to learn new skills; carpentry, electrical, painting and scenery making, model building (houses, stores,etc), time and money management, research into how real railroads operated, and even learning about geology to aid in scenery building.
Model Railroading is more than kids playing with trains!!!!
