Third Model Train Layout
In 1996 I retired from over 20 years of racing Corvettes. My son was 6 and he was wanting to get a model train for Christmas. Model trains seemed like a hobby we could both get involved in and have a lot of fun. I found an ad for the Redford Model Railroad Club in a local hobby shop. When I visited, I was impressed with what I saw and immediately joined and became active in the club. I had just recently moved into a house with a large basement and planned on building a large HO model railroad layout. I figured "what better way to build a model railroad than to practice and develop the needed skills at the club". This has worked well and I have ben able to apply this to my home layout. In addition, I enjoy the many other club activities and rail fanning. I recently added a sign to the top of my fuel truck loading facility.
