Hello everyone, I am new to this fourm. My name is Chuck, but my name here is Lionelfan. As you can tell from the name, I am a Lionel Collector/operator and have a small (50 to 100 piece) collection of Lionel from the late 1950's to the mid 1990's. I also have HO scale and ran these at a local club until recently. I am from Akron Ohio and am also interested in building model cars. I am in the process of rebuilding my layout of 027 Lionel and hope to talk to others with similar interests.
