Ok, this is probably a big mistake but I've finally got a recent photo of my wife and myself to post here. Now you can see the real Rusty Stumps.

Here is my input:

1) What State or Country and nearest City we live in : I live outside of a small town called Moncks Corner, South Carolina. It is not too far from Charleston which some of you may be familiar with.
2) How long modeling and how we got started : I have just recently started modeling, in fact I don't even have my first project completed. I got into modeling because I have always wanted to have a model railroad and I have finally built a house with enough room to spare. Besides that I like electronics and trains so I thouhgt putting togehter a model railroad would be a great way to work with both.
3) What lines we model : I would like to model the lines I see locally such as CSX and AMTRAK.
4) years we model : I prefer more recent years. Of course it is hard to pass up the old steam locos pulling a bunch of coal...
5) how large our layout is : My current plan is for a 4x8 layout with later island additions as I learn more.
6) if we use DC, DCC or other: I would like to build a DCC layout. Mainly because I want to set it up on a computer controlled system.

Hi all
Thanks for responding to our little "Lets get to know each other better" section.
I am going to change one question since it would also be nice to know what scale you model.
Rusty I have been waiting for over a year for a picture and all I see is the little red X.
I could make a comment but I will resist.
Thanks again to all who have answered these questions and welcome.

John, Rusty's photo is on my screen, and all I can say is WOW! He really is older than me! And he's a cradle robber into the bargain. His wife is obviously much younger than he is and is certainly far more attractive!

Hi Mike
I had to copy and paste the picture URL to my browser in order to see the picture.
There he is big as life and as you say definitely a cradle robber.
AOL has this filter that does not allow certain photo's to pass through their site so I guess they figured this was some sort of kiddie porn.
I will leave the comments about age to myself as he has all his hair and it is not gray.
Good looking couple.

Now, now fellas, I'll take your comments as compliments.

Yes I suppose I did rob the cradle but that was 41 years ago. She was 17 to my 19. They say it doesn't last and we planned to prove them wrong. She's the mother of 4 fine young men two of which are over 6'-5". I feel I had a little to do with it.[:-bigeyes2]

Well, if Walt can do it, I guess I can. Besides, I don't see any other way of ever living down that "wetsuit/SeaDoo" fiasco from last year.... [:-grumpy]

This was taken two Christmases ago. I was almost in a good mood.

Hi all,

1) We live in Melbourne Australia.
2) Started modelling Christmas 2002 because Suzanna (5 year old) wanted a train set. Dad even lets Suzanna play with it occasionally!
3) Main theme is Victoria Railways (very much like 1940's US diesel era from what I can tell) and UK steam era.
4) Era: 1950's
5) Our layout is currently 11' by 6' in HO.
6) Exclusively DCC as it seemed easier to start that way. Using Roco DCC starter kit which has been easy to use.
7) Just enjoying it immensely. The forum is great.

Updated with a picture from our wedding day Jan 31 2004 as I didn't post one originally.
