I have to say that I'm finding this conversation to be quite entertaining... what with the fact that nuclear physics does or does not explain why one models the Colorado narrow gauge railroads... in Ireland, no less... and with Frank assembling couplers in his sleep.  I'm thoroughly enjoying this.   :)

Hi Frank,


Saw your comment regarding nuclear physics. You wouldn’t happen to work at ORNL would you?


I grew up in Knoxville; my step-dad (Orlan Yarbro) worked at ORNL in the Fuel Recycle Division till he retired roughly 15 year ago.


(None of which quite explains why I’m modelling Colorado narrow gauge railroads in Ireland now, but there you have it.)


Cheers,
Jeff.

Actually this has intrigued me a bit, wondering what many of us do/did for a living.

Nuclear physicist is cool
I'll claim Rocket Scientist (Aerospace Engineer) and computer geek

Anybody else want to play?

Well I guess I'll play also, even though I don't have much to say.

I was an engineer also, but not one that drives trains. I was a sustaining engineer for a semiconductor firm. I'm currently on SSDI due to many different health issues, mainly heart problems.

Heck since I'm retired I guess I'm "playing" !! I am a retired Broadcast Radio Engineer, radio station owner/operator from the Pacific Northwest. Did our morning show for over 35 years and meet a ton of nice folks both in the business and had some great surprises in finding out that many in the entertainment field were model railroaders... had a great interview with Rod Stewart once down in Seattle. He really does travel with a ton of kits and a well stocked workbench that puts mine to shame!!

 Now relocated to Montrose, Colorado and with the help of my wife Debbie, we are building a 28x 32 foot On30 layout. Lots of fun. However, now in the middle of doing Chemotherapy, its a battle sometimes to get motivated for working on the layout. If there are any modelers, any scale, who would like to get there hands dirty in helping to build and you're in the Montrose area, we would love to have you stop by. You can contact us at katmedia@.... Hope to see some friendly faces in the near future..... Cheers!!

For over 20 years I worked as an Advertising Manager for a newspaper then an auction company. One day I saw a poster near my home looking for a cabinet maker; within three months of my interview I was asked to buy the company. Five years on and still I am learning much on the job.
