After 23 years in HO scale, I switched over to O scale in 1993, and have never looked back. I have been attending the Chicago 0 scale meet ever since. Though not a charter member, I have been a member of O-Scale Central for well over 10 years. I am a life member of the NMRA, joining in 1988 (membership number - L04984). I have held every office (Superintendent, Paymaster, Director) in our local NMRA division during the last 14 years. I have been a judge in the Chicago meet model contests, and this past March gave a presentation on the application of radio control for 0-Scale. I model the Denver & Rio Grande Western from 1934-1949 and am currently at the benchwork stage of building a large layout.
