I have been interested in trains for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Eastern Kentucky watching Family Lines railroad serve a couple mines that was close to our house. I still remember seeing some of the old Geeps paint in L&N still running around. I know about model trains but really wasn't until I got Model Railroad Nov. 1992 that I was really exposed to modeling. I got my first Bachmann trainset for Christmas that year (The Golden Spike). 20 years later I'm still modeling and on my 3rd layout. My 1st layout was a 4' x 8' in my parents basement. The 2nd layout was 22' x 16' still in my parents basement. My 3rd layout is housed in a room that was built just for the layout.
I work as a conductor for CSX Transportation out of Hazard,KY on the Rockhouse Sub-division. I have one daughter 12 years old. My Wife Bobbie and I have been married 13 years. I thank her for the support and understanding and her patience she has when it come to my railroad.
