The East Penn Traction Club, Inc.
Iím a Pittsburgher, grew up with 40 Mt Washington cars squealing past the front of our house.
I rode those cars but just to get somewhere; I was not a rail fan but I liked to build model trains.
I took a 20 year sabbatical from model building until my mother asked me to build a model of the old house.
That done I wanted a place to put it but I didnít have room for a train layout so I built a small streetcar layout.
During that build Richard Orr introduced me to EPTC and I attended my first Meet and joined the club in 1987.
Since then I served three terms as president and help the club however I can.
I built a few modules including South Hills Junction that took more time to research and document than to build.
