I have been collecting and or running toy trains since I was a young child. Mostly Lionel O Gauge and Standard Gauge. Now I collect mostly modern scale trains. I do like to restore pre and postwar trains for myself and friends.


THE BASEMENT MAN-CAVE IS COMPLETE!!!!!!

The workshop has been updated with a new power tool bench with my late fathers old woodworking vice, drill press, disc/belt sander plus Dremel drill press as needed. The HOn3 layout has had NCE wireless DCC  added, video cameras in the long tunnel, DCC Specialties RRampmeter Volt/Amp meter installed. All track is laid and is electrically complete. Scenery is about 70% complete. The layout models my favorite railway, southwest Colorado’s DRGW narrow gauge railway. Been busy at the Scenic Line Modelers Inc HO/HOn3 D&RGW layout. Check out the photos! Looks like the 3 rail Hi-Rail O is going to have to wait a little while longer until the retirement basement with a different home on top comes along.


As to my other train related passions I have become very good at repairing and restoring Lionel postwar  transformers - hence the name Tranz4mr. I guess its the mechanical/test engineer in me that enjoys the history of electrical materials and ideas that these old transformers teach you.Visit the ZW Page, the KW Page and More Transformers page for some cool hints and upgrade tips.
