BIG NEWS (for me) is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.

A new child is great and congrats to you. I have a 3 month old grandchild and that is another great feeling. I will be able to spoil him and then send him home to mom and dad.


Very good Aaron and congratulations!
Treasure every moment...the memory of this occasion will be with you for the rest of your life.
