About 20 years ago when I lived up in Puget Sound on eastside I met a man recently arrived to the area from Callfornia. for the next 5 years we worked on my layout and planned and began to build his layout. Then I moved to California and about 2 times per year would travel up to see him and work on his layout. Never operate as we were always working.
He finally found time in his busy schedule to visit the OWNRy down here and we ran trains.
Mark Bridgwater is a wonderful father, freind and pretty darn good modeler. Hopefully he will again resurrect the Feather River Canyon RR in his new home currently being built in in Redmond, WA.
