About the Clinician...

     I have had some sort of model railroad since the age of three. Started with Marx three rail, then on to HO, then N. When our children wanted a train set I went back to HO and have remained in that scale. In 1990 along with two other gentlemen, founded the “Saint Alban’s Railroad Fellowship”, a men’s ministry of Saint Alban’s Church in Newtown Square, PA. The layout started in a small corner and has expanded to fill a 50’ by 80’ room. I model the Eagles Mere narrow gauge railroad which is a small part of the layout.
     I also have an interest in machining and tools used in the modeling and machining trade. After retiring, my wife Sue and I downsized to a smaller house so there is no room for a layout. I have a model building room and a small wood shop to keep me occupied while I’m not at Saint Alban’s Model Railroad.
