This is where I talk about HO Model Railroading.
At this point, I am what may be described as a semi-armchair modeler. My temporary layout has been holding a corner of the living room hostage for several years, and I am using it to practice modelling techniques. I really like building scenery and structures from scratch, and am working on a scale model of the barn from my childhood farm.
Gas station built from scratch Boxcar trackside shack from a kit, detailing added
Vehicles are lots of fun, and I've painted and even kit-bashed quite a few. Here are just two.

I am using the western end of the Lehigh Valley Railroad as a prototype. This line ran through the farm where I grew up. Am interested in hearing from anyone who might have memorabilia from the Lehigh Valley Railroad. Contact me at email@example.com The Finger Lakes area of western New York is of greatest interest to me.
The Lehigh Valley has a good on-line site. Try Lehigh Valley Railroad for historical info and great photos.
