1. Can someone help me finding this Lionel model?

    My Dad has a collection of Lionel models that stay in my bedroom and, among the other pieces of equipment, has the #2521 Observation/President McKinley, #2522 Vista Dome/President Harrison and the #2523 Pullman/President Garfield 18-inch aluminum passenger cars.

  2. Fictional History of my Routes

    I created some new routes that are actually two routes with two versions of each one, which means that there is actually four routes.

Here's what I call 'Rules with Trainz Railroad Simulator':

    Well, Thanksgiving has already come and gone. I wanted to write this blog earlier, but the wireless network at my grandmother's place isn't that reliable. I had to wait until today, and to get the wireless network to connect to the Internet, to write this blog. Anyway, people around this time of year what they are thankful for. People sometimes believe that they are thankful for a computer, a cellphone, a TV, internet, and other materialistic things to be thankful for. But let's face it: more and ...
  5. Side Effects of being a Railfan

However, the list of side effects seems longer than what the benifits that the pill is supposed to help you. So since I've seen all those commercials, I decided to come up with a blog that lists the side effects of being a railfan:

    1. All the favorite websites on your computer are train-related.
