Spotlight on Jim Long

  Autobiography by Jim Long. My interest first came from railroad connections on both sides of the family and grew from there. My grandfather was a steam locomotive mechanic at the CNR roundhouse in Dauphin Manitoba and my father in law was the express agent for the CPR in Ingersoll 60 some years ago. I have been involved with models and modelling for close to 50 years and have had a couple of layouts as time would permit. I currently have one smaller layout that is somewhat complete [no layout is ever exactly the way you want it to be] and another slightly larger set up is in the beginning stages. The large layout gives me the opportunity to meet with others who share a common interest and to learn and be amazed at the diversity of skills and talent we have to draw from.
