MODELING MEMORIES

His memories of New England various,

Were by and large vicarious…

Mostly pictures he saw

with interest and awe,

His chances of a visit–hilarious!

Point of fact he was too young,

Couldn’t drive himself even some…

The eight-hour ride

Once a summer left wide,

Window for relevant magazines to come!

Still his interest grew,

Past the time when he knew…

This paint scheme was gone,

these ALCOs moved on.

But the history he wanted to view.

Found an N scale engine thus,

Painted just like this—a plus–

To re-enact

Historical fact,

Without too much fuss!

WHY ANOTHER WYE (N SCALE TURNOUT)?

WHY ANOTHER “WYE”  ?

(N scale turnout)

Why buy another “Wye”,

Because he wants to try…

Arranging track

To get space back,

A finagling kind of a guy!

A modeled food company’s spur,

Is very tight-curved as it were…

Also admiring

Simpler wiring,

Would give the project a “spur”!
