    head down in shame

    I spent 12 hours on a train from Newcastle Pa to Cleveland, I spent another 12 hours the next day coming home. I cursed the fact that I was "stuck" on this crappy train. I went home and thought about modeling it.

    What the heck is wrong with me?

    I am a train-a-holic:oops:

    ............... I heard a train whistle at a local crossong..... I was on one side of a parking lot. I drove "not to slowly" :) over to the other side of the lot, where the tracks are... Waited for the engines to go by (2 CSX) and then watched a bit of the train go by. I turned the car around & started to leave that section of the lot, when I saw 2 store employees "That know me by sight" looking at me with huge smiles. :D :D :D :D

    None of us said a thing... it was a mutual understanding LOL I Waived - They Nodded..... btw - they are Home Depot Employees.... They seem to know I have a layout "That took a bunch of wood to build" :D :D :D

    Somebody must have told them :confused: :oops: :confused: :oops: :confused:

    YES!!! For those of you that know me! I was chasing Night Trains in the Mustang convertible again..... I'm Soooo Hooooked ROFL!!!!

    Hi, my name is Clark and I'm a trainaholic.
    I didn't know it until I read this thread, but the unmistakable symptoms are all there.
    The Gauge is the first site I visit every day.
    All of my eBay favorite searches involve trains.
    I used Front Page to create a link page for my desktop with nothing but train shops and train related site links on it.
    The other 90% of my computer time is spent designing and redesigning layouts.
    I was originally hooked when I was 5 and we would take the train to visit relatives back east every year. I thought Union Station WAS Chicago and was shocked when we went outside one time and I realized there was more to it. :eek: :eek:
    And now the worst parts, I have gone seriously in debt buying model RR equipment, :rolleyes: :rolleyes: and I still don't have enough!! :cry: :cry: :cry:
