Spotlight on Larry Brinker

This is the first article introducing our club members and their model railroading journey. Like most, my first train was a Lionel .  I got to use an old farm table that was in an upstairs bedroom, to set up my empire.  Next, I built an interlocking frame of 2 X 2 inch lumber in shop class at school.  Thank goodness it was too large to put together at school as I miscalculated some of the notches.  I never finished that empire.  Then life happened, work that is, so model railroading took a backseat.  One day I saw a Postage Stamp Train set, wow, this will fit in an apartment, won't it?  I moved to a house too soon to finish that one.  Life happened again ( kids) but I did get back to it by building a double decked N scale layout. Then I visited Don's layout one day, he hasn't noticed yet so I just keep going back.  That's where I got the bug for HO, so I now have a back woods, mountain railroad call The Grants Pass Railroad, (you can see it by going to ).  Now we have a railroad club where I get to model railroad with another great bunch. That's me in the red sweatshirt , writing something important (I'm sure) on the bench work .
