I'm with you Roger.

Seems I'm the only one (so far) to have punched the 81-85 button. Not a drive-by either, I'm here for the duration.

Where's the option for "older than dirt?"

Seriously, I'm only just 55, a bit younger than the majority so far, but my body feels like it's over 150. Went straight to hell overnight when I turned 50.

I'm thinking of changing my name to Methuselah.

I'm 74 and grateful that I can still participate in this great hobby. I do however have to take a break once in a while if I'm doing a lot of work on the layout just to let my aches & pains recover.

If it matters to anyone, yes we have over 20,000 members ....
but , in 2019 only 2400 have visited [80 pages times 30 per page] ..
so the numbers should be 'adjusted' a bit ..
note: that this number does NOT include guests, which -may- be members, but choose not to log in or post ..

I would have to agree with you there. although I am not a long term member and even still hot and cold with visiting the site. I will say that I visit no other of the Hobby forums except this one.

I tend to visit and stay a while. Its sort of like YouTube. You go on YouTube to see how to do this or that then 4 hours later I am way off my original topic watching something that I have no idea why I am even watching it.

Scales Modeled: S gauge/American Flyer
Images: 7
73 years old here. Got my first American Flyer set in 1954 from Santa. Ran that train for a good many years then cars and girls got in the way. After that it was drag racing and Harleys. Somewhere in there began an HO layout. One of several, all the while buying American Flyer with a long range goal in mind in that gauge. Now officially American Flyer runner/collector for a solid 30 years. Still enjoy it with no plans to stop now.
