    At almost 62 years young I have collected road stock, books, videos etc... in hopes that some day I could build a layout in my basement. Now that I have downsized to an apartment with a basement and do not have all the work of upkeep of a home it will give me time to learn and build.

    A while back I read many threads on the old Gauge forum and found it to be top drawer. I hope this is that same forum and look forward to an experience of a life time.

    My collection is of HO and that is where I plan to start.

    The town I live (Sterling, IL) has great history of the CB&Q and Chicago Northwestern.
    As a child we road the train to Chicago and then on the Ohio were my parents were from. At age five we road the Santa Fe to Cali. where my father was stationed during his stint in the Navy.

    I look forward to help from all of you in Building my layout.
