Ken,

This is wild! I've gone wind surfing on that lake. My brother lives in Beaver Dam and he has a friend that has a wind surfing business in Fond Du Lac right across the street from the lake.

Bill, I have started to check out your website and I like what you are doing with it very much. I want to go back and take more in later. I like that Shay! When I worked for Medtronic back in the 80's I used to visit St Paul every so often. Really enjoyed it.

Love that hat Marken!

Small world, isn't it Chuck?

I know the place. Right across the street from Sunset Supper Club. Sometimes the brave ones come running up our way, especially with a good wind. You should see the ice boats come winter... those are cool.

I spend quite a few days ice fishing Beaver Dam Lake every winter.

Hi Ken,

As you may have seen on my bio(page 6), I also am a cheesehead. When we lived in Oshkosh we used to sail to Calumet Harbor from the Pioneer Inn.

Barry,
Thanks for compliment. The site has kinda morphed from a one page Hello World kinda thing into the train pages it is today. I been out of the pic for a while, but I think today may be a play day. Got a couple guys running at the moment, and may hit the project on the workbench. Yea, I *love* St Paul, worked downtown from 1979 to 1986. Great little town. Easygoing, quiet and friendly. And then there's Minneapolis.....

Hi everyone. I've been posting here for a few months now but have been negligent about posting to this thread.

1) What State or Country and nearest City we live in:
I live in Hamilton, NJ, which is a suburb of Trenton.

2) How long modeling and how we got started:
Iíve been RR modeling two years now. I had a Tyco set when I was a kid and like everyone
else out grew them when cars, girls and college became more important. I picked up a copy of Model Railroader in a bookstore two years ago and that rekindled my interest in the hobby.

3) What lines we model:
I have a little of everything on my layout. I have CNJ, Reading and PRR. Iím not into recreating a prototype; my main interest in the hobby is building craftsman kits and scenery. The trains are just an excess to do the other two.

4) Years we model:
Transition era. Late 50ís early- mid 60ís.

5) How large is your layout and what scale do you model:
My current layout is 4x8 with an extension of another 2x8 cut in half length ways and joined at 90 degrees.

6) If we use DC, DCC or other:
I currently use my old Tyco DC power supply. I will upgrade to DCC when I start building my new layout.

7) Anything else you want to add:
I just want to say thank you to Joe for hosting such a great forum and to all the moderators for taking the time to make sure everything runs smoothly. Also a big thank you to all the regulars that post here. The amount of quality information I have learned here is second to none.

8) Post your picture if you dare:
OK, you asked for it:






This is me with my two daughters. Nicole, age 13 and Jacklynn, age 14.

As you think, so will you be.
