David Angle

Pasted Graphic

David’s dad brought him up with an appreciation for trains by having him assist in the creation of an HO gauge setup in the basement. As David grew up, he took on the trumpet, collecting and repairing R. R. pocket watches, and developing an interest in anything mechanical. He then experienced the England to France train through the Chunnel observing just how far behind America is when it comes to moving people by train. He states that it is a shame that AMTRAK stopped passenger operations between Salt Lake City and Pocatello, Idaho. He then went on to an Associates of Applied Science degree (AAS) from Idaho State and took up using the old film photo technique.

David became interested in the 223 and its opportunities for volunteer work when he joined the efforts of the Hostlers. He comes to the shop on the Frontrunner from Salt Lake City. He keeps a 32 foot power boat on Lake Jackson and is most proud of his work with his dad building an F/brown gas rear engine racing car. He holds two land speed records in his class with his car named “SCRAP IRON”.
