The plan is for this new site to become as much an online hub for railroad enthusiasts as Armorama has become for other military scale modeling projects. We can't do that without your help and interaction though. So please take a moment to look around, signup if you haven't already created an account on Armorama or the KitMaker Network. And if you have that login will work here just fine.
We are always interested in user contributions of photos, articles, reviews or anything you feel your fellow modelers might be interested in. In many ways this is YOUR site. It is not the work of one person or even a small handful. And that is the way we like it.

|Fred Rick Boucher, MANAGING EDITOR, MANAGING EDITORS|
Fred's degree is in fine art with post-grad in commercial art/graphic design. After illustrating a couple of book covers and winning a logo competition he was bitten by the flying bug and became a professional pilot, earning an Airline Transport Pilot certificate. Although he no longer flies for a living, he is still employed in aviation. Fred has dabbled in most parts of the hobby over the years, including model railroading. He has stepped into 1:1 scale railroading, briefly firing a small steam locomotive through Doe River Gorge on the restored East Tennessee and Western North Carolina RR, then taking the throttle of a 1908 Baldwin 4-6-0 steam loco on the Nevada Northern Ry. While he craves building models, his current situation mainly limits him to reviewing and sharing his experience. Fred is a private person who is involved in his church and actively supports several missionaries around the world.
