I'm back... Personal, medical, and financial issues have keep ole 2-8-2 out of the model railroading business for quite some time now. I see that my last visit was in September of last year. :cry: 2008 will birth the Erie & Southern Railroad on an actual layout, and the rebirth of my website, which was also taken down for some retooling. Thanks to those who were still sending in rail pass exchange requests, I hope I got to all of them. At any rate, it's good to be back in business! I'm sure brakie will be happy to answer all of my operations questions again!
