    Are you a train runner? A collector? A model builder? An electrician? A historian? An entertainer? A leader of a group? A prototypical operator? A photographer or movie maker? A storyteller? A day-dreamer with visions of artistic expression or realistic duplication?

    Share YOUR why. N Scale model railroading can be a big investment of time, money, energy, and thought-process. What kindles the flame of motivation within you?

    Dare to share your dream or vision? In your lifetime, what would you imagine as the pinnacle of your model railroading career?

    Update: No Surprise “JM” asked 14 Questions to ask 1

    And he didn’t provide an answer to his own “why”!

    At heart, I am, always was, always will be “a story teller”.

    An example of this I published on our NRail Channel:

    And this one:

    And honestly I believe EVERYONE has many stories to tell. Tune in for this month’s ZoomTRAK where we begin to unpack “50 Years of NTRAK” stories.

    Please keep this thread going: What is YOUR story, your WHY?

    I have loved trains for as long as I can remember and got into N scale so I could maximize my train to space ratio.

    I think the pinnacle of my model railroading "career" is going to be the restoration of the Cotton Brute.

    Larry Card, I love your Cotton Brute reference. Having just left Amherst, I was witness to many reactions of joy including “tears of joy” like seeing a long lost friend. You did GOOD!
