    Hello, My name is Donald. I been a member of this forum for sometime but I haven't post anything on here so I figure now is as good as time as any.

    I have been modeling in HO scale for 20 years now. I have had 3 layouts. My first was 8 feet x 10 feet, my second was 10 feet x 22 feet and my third is 16 feet x 16 feet. My third layout is housed in a building that I built just for the layout. Only obstruction is the door. The building is heated and cooled. The layout is a triple deck layout with the lowest level use just for staging. My layout is made up of 2 railroad. One being the Kentucky, Virginia, & Ohio (KV&O) name for the state that I have worked in. The other being D&D Mining and Steel. It was named this because my dad help me with the mining part of the layout and I have a big interest in steel mills. Here are the links to my web sites.

    Enjoy the sites
    Take care
