I have always been into Trains growing up, and strangely, I was always overly excited to fly in my younger years, but I just became a serious airfan just a few years ago. I have been, and will always be a serious railfan. Theres just something about the hobby that is so amazing in it's own way when comapred to aviation. I am a very big Diesel fan, and I own an O scale layout that takes up my whole basement. My fleet is made up mostly of my father's post-war Lionel collection, which I brought out of 20 years storage and had fixed up. I also have a good number of MTH products. I really do want to start an HO layout, but the two things which are needed for such a project (time and lot's of $$$) is something I don't have right now. I am into modeling layouts after "cityscapes", and model commuter rail, and rapid transit. Having lived my whole life in NYC, and grown up with the LIRR, and NYCTA (The LIRR was known for it's historic commuter fleet, and it's safe to say the same about the NYCTA). Sadly, this labor day, Metro-North, NYC's "other" commuter railroad, will retire it's last FL-9, a truely historic diesel/electric locomotive.
