Another trip to Springfield is in the books, it was another great show with nine acres of model railroading to see in just two days.

Now it’s time to find out from all your favorite AML characters what they saw, who they talked to and what they bought.

So grab yourself a big bowl of shredded Tyco hopper cars, a tall glass of re-useable hot dog water and enjoy !!!

We first met Brooks about a year ago through an email we received at the ole’ AML headquarters. (It had fallen behind one of the filing cabinets.) He seemed like the perfect candidate for an interview, young, self motivated and dedicated to model railroading. This is an excellent interview exploring the many facets how life intertwines with this great hobby of ours and helps to strengthen the fabric of who we are as individuals.

When he is not busy searching for Blue box models he’s running his business, Western Audio Works check out his website at:

Enjoy !!

Still wondering what those bright lights were last night above your house, your Aunt Mabel claims she was abducted by aliens on Tuesday and they took her ’79 Pinto wagon with them. You’re convinced Area 51 is nothing more than a cover for the real UFO’s in Area 73. This all sounds quite reasonable but be prepared to go back… Way back.

It’s the latest edition of the X2F Files as we take a look back at some of the hits and misses from model railroading’s yesteryear with Model Railroad News editor Tony Cook.
