    In 1993 I built a two story garage for myself and selfish reasons (man cave). It evolved into my poker palace, hence the custom poker chip I use for a avatar.

    Nothing fancy here, just my first name + a random group of numbers.

    Should have made it more exciting, I guess, or at the very least significant.

    I am a Star Trek fan.

    I find many use the "usual" names so I use "Qapla" ... it is Klingon for "Success"

    I lived in Gainesville from 1970 to 1979 (with 9 months in Tallahassee), and have lived in Florida all my life. I live in Orlando now.

    I went through Orlando last week on my way to Kissimmee, for lunch - I rode the SunRail out of DeBarry

    We have taken a couple of day trips to Tampa out of Palatka on Amtrak - we go thru Orlando when we do

    I met a longtime rail enthusiast once on a long-distance Western route who said "Better a rolling hotel than a flying bus". That stuck with me.

    I started in TV at a DuMont station 1963, and took a lot of the old DuMont gear to Texas A&M and used it to build their TV station KAMU, Few of the students knew much about vacuum tube equipment, they only knew those newfangled transistor thingies.
    I became quite a student of Dr. Allen B. DuMont, and later bought the trademark "The DuMont Network" for use in my Subchapter 5 Corporation.
    Made a good CB handle when I was driving TV trucks and of course when the Internet age arrove, it was a natural.
    Then the Island of Tuvalu was granted the .tv domain, and promptly set it out for leasable domains. Hence dumont.tv.
    More people know me as Doc DuMont than know my real name, alas.

    The first locomotive I got really excited about was the GE Genesis series P42, which I always looked out for when I used to railfan along the Metro North corridor when I lived in New York. The AC/DC is obviously another locomotive reference, but also is for one of the first bands I got really into!

    My user name was the handle of the Lee Marvin character in the movie Emperor Of The North. Just a name, not the way I feel about myself.

    Actually have been using "basketmaker" since about 1972. I was a "bit" of a wild driver in my younger years. After taking my '72 Pinto Squire Wagon a couple laps around a motocross track (including jumps) a couple of CB group (REACT) friends said I was crazy and should be in a home "making baskets". Well, I started using it as my CB handle. In '79 I bought my first PC (1st Apple II sold in Nashville) and went into the internet world on a 300 baud dial-up. I got on to GEnie messenger service and they wanted a screen "handle" so it was only natural to use it. Been my main e-mail/screen name ever since. I do use "amtraker@?????.???" as a secondary e-mail on a couple of sites/ISPs.

    Willbridge interlocking was the heart of the SP&S Railway in Portland. It and the UP East Portland interlocking and the SP&S Vancouver telegraph office were places where kind employees in the 1960's let me learn rail operations. Of the three places, Willbridge sounds like a person's name.

    I haven't been here for a long time (had to reset my password), so I'm saying hi as if just joining now. My name only means that my favorite and most often traveled trip is BAL to NYP and back!
