Railroads and railroading have been a life long passion with me. I grew up with the "Burlington Route" running by my back door as well as the back yard of my grandparents. I spent many an hour just sitting under a shade tree waiting for that sound. The deep earth shaking rumbling of the engines as they struggled against the weight of the train . I was not fortunate enough to have been around during the age of steam, but I have witnessed it's power, smells, and sound through the engines of the Union Pacific. Those days of mainline steam are gone forever but I can recreate it in HO scale to bring back those memories.

My memories are of the sleek fluted stainless steel of the early E series locomotives pulling the fabled "California Zephyr" passed my grandparents back door. I used to ride that train between Chariton and Burlington, Iowa once a month to visit my other set of grandparents. Both of my grandfathers had worked for the "Q".

It would be my great pleasure to recreate the memories of your past, be it steam or diesel. Whether it is a body, a full engine, a complete train to run on a layout, or just for display, I'll do whatever is necessary to bring your memories to life.
