I'm attempting to use MOCPages as my new
web site for my LEGO train hobby after several other failed
attempts. Who knows I might just maintain this one!
came out of the dark ages in 1997. Hi, my name is Steve." (all reply
in unison: "Hi Steve.")
From ages ~4 to 11 I spent a lot of time building with LEGO® elements.
In 1997 I rediscovered LEGO. It all started when I discovered a Metroliner
50% off at the hobby store I *used* to buy my N-gauge supplies
at. Literally several months later I found myself organizing a train club
with Ben Fleskes and Dan Parker in the Pacific Northwest (PNLTC). Now there are
over 20 train clubs around the world; truly we are all crazed!. All in all my wife rather me hang around the house building LEGO trains then hangin' at the
many fine Portland area micro breweries, or smoking crack, jumping off
tall buildings with a parachute, standing in a cold shower fully dressed tearing
up $100 bills (otherwise know as owning a boat)...
PNLTC: Ben Fleskes, Dan Parker and I formed the Pacific Northwest LEGO Train
Club (PNLTC) in the spring 1997. We met thru Will Chapman, the fourth member, who
was actually doing train shows in Seattle prior to the club formation. Drop by
and visit our site. There are thousands of pictures of the many train shows
we've done including when we setup at LEGOLAND, CA in 2001!
BricWorx: Dwayne Towell and I started BricWorx
(pronounced "Brick Works") in February 2001. By February 2003 our catalog has included four different
train car designs, one train set, and one instruction book. This hobby
business has be great; I have experienced set design, element analysis,
brick acquisition, instruction layout, publishing, packaging and shipping!
My dream one day is when we can source bricks and sell tens of thousands of
sets rather then tens of sets! Oh, to dream!
ILTCO: Mike Walsh and I started an e-mail list
we called the "International Brotherhood of LEGO Train Clubs", however borrowing
the name from the IBEW (my dad's union for
over 30 years) apparently wasn't politically correct enough for the AFOL masses
and so we settled on the "International LEGO Train Club Organization". The
list was created so all the train
clubs around the world can talk "off line", out of the public's eye, and there was now also
mechanism for LEGO Direct to "talk" to all the clubs at one time. Well now ILTCO has
become a more formal organization and is recognized by LEGO. We've come a long
Occasionally I dabble in LEGO CAD
to create building instructions and even less frequently I work on other print media
and video projects based on various LEGO themes (who am I kidding, trains).
