Happy 1st Anniversary WarrenvilleRailroad.com !
Updated: Aug 1
It's hard to believe that a year has passed since I started this new site!
I've been having a lot of fun sharing information about The Warrenville RailRoad, friend's layouts, tips and projects.
I'm thankful for all of the positive comments received in person, on the website, via email and via posts from my online friends on the OGR Online Forum: ( Home | O Gauge Railroading On Line Forum (ogaugerr.com) )
I'm especially want to again thank my local friends for allowing me to share their layouts in the monthly "Friend's Layouts" feature. This has been the most popular feature here!
Another thanks goes to the Lionel Operating Train Society (LOTS) for printing part of my From Plasticville "Junk" Comes Unique Buildings blog post in their June 2022 issue of The Switcher print magazine. This is the third time The Warrenville Railroad was featured in an article in The Switcher:
Lastly, I have to acknowledge the Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) whose The Lion Roars print magazine featured an article from this site; One of a Kind Cabooses (Cabeese?) in their April 2021 Issue. This is the second time The Warrenville Railroad was featured in an article in The Lion Roars:
I was amazed to see that Warrenville Railroad.com has had visitors from 13 countries, including: USA, France, United Kingdom, Canada, Austria, Germany, Czechia, New Zealand, Israel, Netherlands, China, Lithuania and Australia!
I was surprised to note, in review, that I have written 33 articles for this site in its first year.
