Gary is a lifetime model railroader who has enjoyed building machinery and models of all types since he was young.  Early employment as a machinist and mechanic helped to prepare him for his mechanical engineering degrees and partially explains the small machine shop in his home garage.  Gary models in early steam HO scale and his latest 11’ x 15’ layout, located in his home front room, features all kit and scratch built rolling stock and structures.  He has earned ten of the NMRA Achievement Program awards and is currently working toward the eleventh.
