    Scooby,
    Your family is in our daily prayers. I have also added him to the church prayer group.

    Give me shout when you able to head down here. I get up there to Orlando so much I can tell you some good places for trains that you can share with your son, and family. Might even have some pull with the Orlando N-Trak. They have some real nice modules.
    Nearby there is a Live steamer group with a layout.
    ...of course that is if Make-a-wish don't set you up with the works.

    Prayers of health and strength to you and family.

    Sccoby: There are lots of trains at Disney World (we were just there in Jan.)
    For an extra treat, ask the cast member at the monorail station if he can ride up front. (pick a slow time).
    Look at the Carolwood Pacific website.
    Get the Unofficial Guide.
    Have you been yourself? There are lots of sites with Disney info.

    Good to hear from you Scoob and also good to hear your son got through what must have been an awful time. I'm glad you hooked up with Make a Wish. They should do a great job setting up a terrific time at Disney.
    Regards,
    Ralph

    Hello Scooby - My 7 year old little girl has C.P., degenerative brain disease, low vision, deformed throat mussels and has a feeder tube in her tummy, so I DO know what you are going through and you know that it is not an easy normal life. I wish the best of luck to you and give that little fighter a big hug from all of us here at the gauge.
