  2. Sometimes I think...

    ...building a layout is more fun than actually having a layout. Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed my various layouts over the years. I like operating trains, not only for myself, but also showing off my handiwork to family and friends. I even get a kick out of the sideshow activities that go with this hobby. A friend on this site came up with the idea of pass exchanges. So we exchanged passes among ourselves. I had made up them up for selected friends who had visited the house and seen the railroad. ...

My place was a spooky haunted house in downtown across the street from RR tracks. The Canadian National trains went back & forth between Int'l Falls and Duluth several times every day & night. One train had 3 locos & 133 cars. Had an engine with me to show others. The end of a short blog.
  5. When all else fails...
