    Josh M. - Looked at your layout thread, and some of your weathering pics. Wow am I impressed. Do you have any room for YOU? I would say you have been rather busy. I live in Cerritos, near Knott's. Keep up the good work!!

    Welcome to the Gauge Don, from another Don....

    No, I'm not in California, but we did live close to you a good while back. We are Arizonians through and through, but we did live in Orange County for a few years until we missed Arizona badly enough to come back.

    Hope to see more of you around here.

    I'm modeling ho, although at the moment we are in the middle of a major house remodeling project so my trains are in storage. I'm a member of the Orange County Module Railroaders.

    Orange County Module Railroaders- So. California HO scale RR

    When I'm at a club set up, I usually run 1950's Santa Fe, but I will occasionally go out of era when I feel like running a steam train or if I want to run something more modern.

    Once the remodel is finished, I will again have the space to do a shelf layout in a spare bedroom that my wife and I are sleeping in right now. At that time I'm going to build a 7' x 9' "L" shaped switching layout based on the LA Junction Rwy.
