Default Vintage Bachmann, Life Like, AHM, and some Tyco

Part of my joy in model railroading is bringing old models out of the closet
and back to life. Memories reborn. The Amtrak set had been in storage
since 1977, by its owner, Jimmy James, who went into the US Naval
Academy in Annapolis. The other pieces were part of a give away, that
or the dumpster, and likely date to around 1990. After a few arcs and
sparks, herks and jerks, they rumbled into life and functioned flawlessly
for three hours at the El Paso Model Train Club's layout.

In addition to model trains, Jimmy and I also enjoy vintage country music.
Enjoy the sound track!

I play country music a lot when in my railway room with Johnny Cash being a favourite. I also like listening to Irish music like The Dubliners and The Clancy Bros, and Scotlands Corries. What is it about England that we don't have our own recognisable style of music?

Nice vid, Chops.

Thank your kind thoughts, we had a lot of fun that night. I shall be eagerly looking up
the artists mentioned, above.

I disagree but do agree about Johnny Cash, have about 65 of his albums.

Massed Pipes and Drums of the Scottish highlands gather in Deeside for first parade of 2018

Watching this on Youtube at 3 in the morning. These people are amazing.

Checked into the Dubliners, Clancey Bros, and the Scotland Corries. A rich,
vintage sound.

Brass bands are fine in the military (I marched behind quite a few in my time!). But for non-military music I find them unappealing. It's more prevalent in the North of England and I'm originally from the South so guess that's the reason..
