    Torpedo's right about the overlap, but I guess if you were born in Jan-June you can go with the earlier block, July-December go with the later block. That's real easy and logically distributes the dates into appropriate blocks. Let's see if we can get this up to 200!:D

    I was born in 1966. I find it very interesting that I'm in the largest age group so far. I would have suspected that the age grouping would have favored someone slightly older. Then again, we're on an online computer forum, I wonder what kind of demographics are playing out here. It would be nice to think the average age of model railroaders was shifting, given current trends.

    Funny - this thread came up when I clicked on "New Posts" but it seems the last post was 04-03-2007. That happens a lot to me. Does it happen to anyone else?
    Anyway, Deano - you were born the day before me

    Threads with a poll will jump up as a "recent thread" if someone simply votes in the poll.

    I am very happy to see the number of younger people involved in this hobby.
    Those of us who remember steam locomotives constituting the majority of engines are happy to see the legacy carried on. Looks like this great hobby will be around for some time to come!

    I'm just a kid to you! Still, I bet we could talk about things that these young whppersnappers wouldn't even think of, let alone remember.

    *chuckles* Wow, I didn't know that many of you guy's were that young. Yall took me by surprise. I thought TruckLover had to be in his late 20's early 30's just judging by his layout lol. I'm an 85'er myself. Somehow I may still be young but man am I really starting to feel old. I guess that's what work does to ya! :D
