I have been an active model railroader for over 40 years. I have some expertise in electronics and DCC and have written over 250 articles in Model Railroader, Model Railroading, and Railroad Model Craftsman magazines. I also have written 4 books on DCC and model railroad electronics. I was a contributing editor for Model Railroading magazine for 15 years and wrote regular columns on computer applications and DCC. I currently am a contributing editor for Model Railroader magazine and write the monthly DCC Corner column. I am building a 26’ x 30’ HO scale layout as well as a smaller GWR shunting layout.
