Biography coming soon.
Jim Gibson is a charter member of ASMR and was its first president.  He started playing with toy trains as a toddler, but his first serious attempt at a layout featured an American Flyer (S-gauge) set he received at about age 10.  He says he still regrets selling his American Flyer trains when he went off to college.  He currently has a very detailed O-gauge “high rail” home layout in a 14 X 24-foot building in his back yard, and also models and runs HO-scale trains on the club layouts.  Jim says one of his favorite aspects of the hobby is scratch-building structures, but adds, “If it has anything to do with model trains or real trains, I’m interested”.

He has been interested in trains since 5 years old according to his parents.  His grandfather arranged a ride for him in the cab of a local steam switcher back in Pennsylavania in 1955 and he was hooked.  He's interested in the ATSF and T&P railroads as prototype inspiration for his own Wolf Creek Railroad which has been under construction since 1972 or so.  The layout itself had to wait until late 2000 or so due to money and right of way availability.  He's involved in working with sound projects using Digitrax decoders.
