Anyone here, besides me, who railfans and/or models trains. My college friends thought I was loony chasing trains. But I had a lot of fun. My grandfather (mom's dad) worked on the railroad (Victorian Railways), and on occasional weekends and during holidays, my brother and I spent time at the railway station he managed. I was able to ride some of the last steam engines still in service (early 1960's) and early diesels. My brother and I were allowed to help out with the signals and switches (all mechanical, before electrical systems were installed), of course under the supervision of my grandfather. Anyway, I developed life long interest (really passion) for trains. My favorite lines are the Lehigh Valley, Erie Lackawanna, and New Haven, and the Milwaukee, Virginian and Great Northern (particularly their heavy electrics).
