Please, folks, let’s get off the taxes subject and back to the fun of  model railroading and our shared passion for the gorre and defeated!
here’s a question for you: why didn’t JOHN build The bridges over the yard? Does anyone who operated there have any insight into this?

Worse still is John Allen’s home town and state. But from what I am seeing and from the places I have lived, up and down the east coast from New York to Florida, to where I am now, a stone’s throw from John’s old stomping grounds, there is no place to flee the taxes or fees. All I see is politicians and lawyers getting rich. I have scaled back my ambitions to a small switching pike ala the timesaver. Doing that has freed up more time and space to do it right.

My Friend I can't tell you how scary New York is.  My Taxes are killing me as I am on fixed income now..   My family is all here... And I began building this space for this layout and I swear if know I could find a place that I could afford (that had all the features I have here) would be available in a state with normal Property taxes... I'd have done the move a while ago.   
I can't get into politics here...  Christ knows I want to...!     None of us should.   So I will leave this message at this..

Hi Randy,

Washington state may not have a state income tax but the real estate taxes are huge.  My house taxes have increased about $2000 in the past 3 years.  Sales tax in my town is 10%.  Washington state also nickel and dimes you with a large number of fees.  They have gone the way of tolls on roads too.  My license tab for my 9 year old car is $360.  I won't even talk about the new gun initiative that will go into effect in June.  I have around 5 years to retire but if things do not change soon I'll be moving somewhere that will be cheaper to live.

Well Gary, all I can say is I bet the taxes are a relief my friend..!  Cuz NY is just about as fiscally looney as California.     
  So the question remains...  Am I the only John Allen faithful in New England?
