Welcome Steve. Thanks for posting your picture and some information about yourself. I look forward to more of your postings in the future and maybe progress pictures of your layout.

Steve,

Welcome to the fourm! Since I have a son and several cousins living in Michigan, I have visted Ludington on a number of occasions. If I recall, it is the location of a ferry to Wisconsin.

Bruce,

You're right. The S.S. Badger is now an automobile ferry traveling between Ludington and Manitowoc, WI across Lake Michigan. For 50 years or so it was owned by the C&O and ferried railroad cars along with it's two sister ships. It's steam-powered and puffs clouds of black, sooty smoke reminiscent of steam-powered locomotives.

Thanks to all for the greetings and well-wishes,

Steve


I never met a train I didn't like.

Yep, looks like you are happily married! Welcome to the forum, Steve! Didn't I see a different picture earlier?

Chuck,

You caught me! I came across this one last night and decided it was more "appropriate" for the forum than the individual photo I had posted earlier.

Thanks for the welcome,

Steve

Hi Folks! I guess I don't fit in to well with most of you. Read on and you'll see why.
1. I'm about 40 miles from Binghamton , NY
2. I think you can say I started when I was in my high-chair and crawling around watching my father.
3.I freelance the northeast.
4.Late 40's - early 50's
5.It's 250sq. ft. and I work with hi rail, mostly Lionel, some Weaver, K=line, MTH. As you can see no loyalty. Don't hit me...I do help my son with n guage when I can see 'em.
6.Nope...good old zw's but am considering it.
7.The connection I do have is that my scenery is based on what you guys do as opposed to the usual toy train look. Da difference...da track, however I use Gargraves and Ross along with a few 022's.
8.Last time I tried having a picture taken the camera broke. However in short time I will post a pic of a semi finished area, just need to complete one thing so I don't get shot by anyone.

Richard, welcome aboard. I don't understand where you don't fit in too well with most of us. Sounds like to me you like trains just as the rest of us. Nobody will shoot you if you post a picture of a work in progress.

Welcome Richard! All are welcome here, so fear not. I see that you are from Unadilla. We used to go to a campground up there. At that time (the early 1970's), there was a school set near a dam on a lake or reservoir. Their sign said something like "Best School by a Dam Site"! That obviously stuck in my mind. Good railroad country too. Again, welcome.
