    WOW!

    You guys had a good time! Nice photos!

    I think Pete deserves a debt of graditude from the entire town of Meyersdale for approaching the Historical Society in the first place, so a model railroad could be built in the station. He has worked long and hard to help create such a great place for railfans and folks with kids to come watch model trains run. He has done so in other places he has lived in. Pete has a love of railroad history among many other intrerests and talents. I do believe he built that G scale trestle? Just look at his scratch built structures too. Honestly, if it weren't for those layouts, where would the Historical Society be?????? Pete is not only my dear cousin-in-law, but he is a great friend and without fail, my mentor in modeling.

    Anyway, you guys all deserve credit for entertaining many folks.

    JT,
    Yes Pete's a good guy! He's done alot for the Historical Society, along with myself among others! He's always up to helping me find things I can't, which sometimes takes time, but it gets found! He was in HO scale at one time an has some thing left that I'm going to work on a deal with him for being I'm a main stay to HO so.... Anyway, with the commewnts on the Historical Society, I'm the oldest (not the oldest in age member but been their the longest) Modeler member. I've been with the Historical Society since 1993... Doing nothing but their modeling etc. and I've seen alot come an go as far as the train/freight room goes!! And since Pete, Gary, and myself got together, its sure come along way in 3 years! Then Mike came along with myself an we got the HO scale part of the room in good shape an always ready to go when need be.

    Bob,
    YES I know that feeling. I remember it when I was like the little 4 to 7 year old kids, an drooling...... an then, I never imagined I'd be doing it myself giving back what it gave me as a kid.... So.... I know the feeling to a point. But yes to the "Having fun" thing. We sure did! :D We always do! I love playing with the controls of the O scale as I get them to do things that make good "conversation" to talk about. As I do alot of on the HO scale part as well.....

    Thanks for the warming feedback guys! :D [​IMG]
