    Greetings to all! I am new to The Gauge. I did a lot of reading on this site prior to coming onboard and I am impressed with how well you all eat, breath and sleep TRAINS! I am in the process of building my HO empire in my basement, time permitting. Keep up the great work!

    Check out, mainlinehobbiesinc.com. Turned a passion of 34 years into reality. Reasonable, great customer service, quick shipping. I know the owner. :thumb:

    Welcome to The Gauge. I'm originally from the chicago area. I was born in Elgin then we moved down to, a small town east of Kankakee, Momence. My parents still live there but I am currently in the Air Force stationed down in Florida. I'll be sure to let my dad know you are in existince in Princeton as one of my sisters are going to school in Dubuque and they travel I-80 fairly often.

    Thanks!

    I was born and raised in Chicago, moved to Princeton 4 years ago. My wife and I don't even go back to Chicago unless we have too. My folks retired to Princeton 14 years ago. Her folks followed us here. I've known this area for a long time. I got out of the cop world after 12 years and we made the move. Glad we did.
