My Son's Excitement

I am building (and have been for a while) a fairly good-sized HO scale layout in our basement.  Recently my son has gotten into trains and we decided to take him to the upcoming model train show.

I can see him sitting there while he's watching TV, looking like he's thinking about something and then he'll say, "I wish the train show was another week away that way I could save my allowance and have more money."

Then he'll ask things like "Will they have locomotives there?" "Will there be used train cars?" "What about Lego trains?"

I remember being that aga and being entralled by my father's model trains.  It's so great to know that he might someday share my love of model trains and that he may someday pass that on to his son.
