I recently retired from a not-very-strenuous career as a computer programmer. I've always been interested in trains but never actively did much -- oh I had a Lionel set as a kid but never really did much with it. After viewing a 6 videocassette set that my deceased father-in-law had I purchased a couple of newer Pentrex DVDs and now I'm interested in trains, once again. I haven't been ON a train for 25 years and that was the Harlem line from POK to NYC.
Anyhow, hello from Tucson!
ETA . . .
BTW, which section (subforum) should I use to ask novice (and possibly irritating) questions about all aspects of trains?
