Grandpa Ron has a subscription to Model Railroader magazine and we both usually read it from cover to cover. Grandpa enjoys the articles on operations and I read up on the scenery articles. The December 2008 issue has a wonderful example of grandpas passing hobbies on to grandkids. It is a similar story for how Grandpa Ron got into model trains and I’m sure there are many more similar remembrances. I have added as a separate page the Trains of Thought column by Tony Koester. It is reprinted with permission from Model Railroader magazine.
