I am Mike and just joined this board. Im 41 and own a 2007 Arctic Cat 400 4X4 LE and a Kymco Mongoose 250. (girlfriends ride) Aside from riding my interests include abandoned railroad exploring (hence my username) skiing, model trains, railfanning, hiking. I am also an officer of our local ATV club.

Two pictures from one of my favorite riding places, SSRT.

Railfanning is watching or photographing running trains. Can be anything from historical ones (like steamtown's trains) to modern day locomotives.

Here are two pictures of the tracks by my house, all I had was my crappy cell phone camera but this is a pair of ex-Delaware & Hudson's RS-3 units that are still in use by the regional railroad (Delaware-Lackawanna) These units are actually considered historical and the railroad now owns FOUR of them and all are in active use. The engineer saw me and revved the engine to blow this puff of smoke.

Welcome to QUADCRAZY!

Are you trying to attach the images? Did it not work? You can also try using a free service like photobucket and just paste the url here.

Hey Mike glad to see you here. Just found out that I can't ride this weekend. A client wants to meet me at 10 so the trip to SSRT is out. :mad:

That sucks, Michelle is going with me so the pace will be slower anyway.

I tried attachments, but after uploading it said they were not valid images :confused:

They are JPG images.

I have an original 1942 lionell set sitting in my garage, so many locomotives and enough track to fill a basement, houses and stuff, but it off me :D lol

I did a around the wall layout with my Lionel Train set. I mounted it 12 inches below the ceiling in my living room. One side as a passing siding, the opposing side has a spur track to switch equipment. Eventually I plan to have it exit the living room and run through the kitchen area.

      I'm curious what all the ladies ride on this site and why!
      I ride a 2008 Yamaha Rhino 700. Just added a new roll cage, dual exhaust and some other things. Here are a few pics:


      I chose the Rhino because my arms and wrists get way too tired on a quad. I haven't tried a bike, but, I don't think my coordination would be good enough to handle that!
      I LOVE my Rhino though!!!!!!! It's the perfect machine for me.
      So, how about you????
