Wow, what a welcome. Thanks. I hope I can learn and share some here. I model the C&O of the Kanawha Valley from 1945 to 1956. I like to photograph trains also, but modeling is my first love.

Take care all.

Hi Jim, it's nice friendly place here, it's meant to be fun and a great place to learn. I hope you will post some photos of your modeling in the near future and tell us about your acomplishments. Don't be afraid to post or ask questions here as flaming is not allowed.
Cheers Willis
