I found a whole bunch of old tapes in the back of the filing cabinet and turned them into a show. Ralph ”Ralphie Boy” Renzetti and Shane ”the Young Gun” Mason talk weathering. Ron Klaiss talks about the railroad heritage in his family and finally Shane ”the Cosmic Cowboy” Murphy tells us about his experiences at the SoundTraxx installation school.

Enjoy!!

Don’t understand why the lady at the dry cleaning store can’t find your favorite Hawaiian shirt you dropped off over 10 years ago. Can’t figure out why your neighbors grass looks better even though you spread three bags of fertilizer in the fall of ’97.

Well fear not, these questions and thousands more won’t be answered as you stare blankly at the wall while listening to another exciting edition of ViewerMail. So sit back with a big bowl dried palm tree bark, a tall frosty glass of watered down windshield washer fluid and enjoy!!

Episode 71: Eric Hansmann - I’ve known Eric for over twenty years and have followed his journey through life with great interest so it seemed obvious we should share his story with the millions of ModelersLife listeners.

Eric hosts two great blogs, one is about designing, building and operating layouts and the other about Resin Car Works. So if you’re interested to find out how a guy from Indiana, Pennsylvania ended up in El Paso, Texas via Morgantown, West Virginia this is a podcast you won’t want to miss !!

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a great saxophone player, a movie house projectionist and a signal engineer with the Union Switch & Signal Company?

We did too, so after searching high and low we found just the guy living on Long Island in Wading River, New York.

Dave’s career in signaling began after correctly identifying a crescent wrench, and several years of working for the New York Transit Authority lead to his present career designing signal systems.

He models the Long Island Railroad, loves volleyball and some day hopes for world peace. There’s lots to take in so listen carefully as Dave takes on an epic journey of his life. Enjoy!!

So sit back with a big bowl road salt, a greasy class of warm bacon fat and enjoy !!

We here at the ole’ AML Network are huge fans of todays millennial railfans and model railroaders like Nick Ozorak. He has a great podcast called the “the Roundhouse” and was gracious enough to spend some time with us.

Being raised on a steady diet of Canadian railroad equipment, O-scale trains and the weekends spent visiting tourist railroads with his father made him the railfan he is today.

Nick’s podcast is full of adventures from across the railroad community, presented in the most entertaining and professional manner possible.  

Enjoy!!

He’ll also gives us an update on his layout, traveling around the country to different operating sessions and everything you need to know about moving a helix.

Turns out there’s no angry way to say bubbles.
