No truth to the rumor that I modeled English mine railway because those were the only railways available to model when I started....

My first was the old floor Lionel layout, which constituted my first memory in life - when we moved to Chicago at age 3, I ran downstairs to make sure it got there, so I must have had it before then.

My brother and I started and got to the plywood and track stage all six HO Railroads You Can Build when we moved to HO, along with the Ma and Pa (another project railroad from MR) We also built a larger custom design, but none ever really got finished.

I later built (with two roomies ) a 5 x 9 HO layout in our dining room based on one of the 101 track plans. When I moved to Texas I built a switching layout in my garage before buying some N scale layout parts from an elderly gent to build my first N scale layout in 1990. (Since my layout was going to be in an open loft and I had small kids at the time, I didn't want to be sawing all night to build benchwork. Later, I found that small children could sleep through anything, although my wife couldn't!)
