Hi, Jim,

Thanks for the info and photo. Please keep us posted on the progress of your On30 layout. BTW: nice catch!. We've got some catfish in the 50-75lb range at the Lake of the Ozarks, but they seldom get caught. Mostly what I see are bass in the 2-5 lb range.

Jim,
It is nice to be able to place a face with a name. It has been a few years since I caught anything even close to the size of that salmon (some cod off the Isle of Shoals by New Hampshire came close). Please keep us posted on your layout progress.

Hi All,
My name is Steve

1) What State or Country and nearest City we live in
I live in the Grand Beach area, 60 miles northeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba

2) How long modeling and how we got started
On and off for over 30 years (i'm 40). Back in now for about a year and a half after a 10-15 year absence.

3) What lines we model
CN, CP, and Undecorated

4) years we model
1900 to present.[:-crazy] I have not settled on a time frame yet. I have loco's ranging from shays to GP40's

5) how large is your layout and what scale do you model.
I model in HO. At the moment the layout is in a 9.5 by 9.5 foot room with the computer in an around the walls setup. This is just a temp setup for a few years until I build a garage for the trains (the car can stay outside).

6) if we use DC, DCC or other
DCC (Digitrax Super Empire Builder). Ten loco's converted so far, two with sound and a broadway limited on order. Hope to get some more Soundtraxx decoders.

7) anything else you want to add
I also enjoy radio control model airplanes and boats in addition to trains.(Can I say that here)

8) post your picture if you dare
Everyone seems to be posting pictures of their families. Well, I'm not married, and have no kids. But if I find a good picture of some of my friends families maybe I'll post that.

Have a good one,

Steve
