Cool other hobbies

I have other interests than computers alone. Celery had guns and games and other stuff. I like boating and fishing. Camping is what i have done for the last 21 years in a rv. We have moved into a stick and brick home after all that time. When on the road over the last 9 years or so, I have been going to model r.r. shows. and had been working on a layout idea. When i moved to Killeen, Texas i had started a 3X5 foot model railroad layout. I am doing a model of a logging camp and sawmill along the lines of some of the camps in West Virginia. It was to small for what i was doing. Now that i have moved into our new home I took one of the bedrooms and turned it into a kind of Man-Cave. Have a big screen tv and cable along with my computer and my desk. I turned the closet into a kinda storage for all the stuff i have collected over the years for the layout and computer. So, I have been working on a update plan for this railroad. I have come up with how to make it bigger without having to rebuild the whole thing. So, i ended up with a 3X8 foot layout and have more room if i need it. The model is 1900's era and uses steam engines of that time. I have some shots of what i have done so far. Its a work in progress as i am about to make one change already. Its a minor one so no big deal. Always a challenge to build something when you are trying to save parts you did right. Shots below. Tell us yours here. Dan

Then the train was gone,and there was nothing but rails, the earth, the moon, the river and strong silence-and the haunting and immortal visage of America by night
