Mostly survived, anyway.

Post  Steve Jackson on Wed Mar 05, 2014 8:23 pm

Hi, KS! I will be at Brickworld - not the others - alas for the lack of a teleporting machine.

Most of the collection survived, and most of what didn't survive is still present but filthy (in many cases, I fear, not worth washing). My buildings and trees and ballasted track modules were all up high. Unfortunately, my Grand Curve sections, and all my rolling stock, were down low. Cleaning up the Grand Curve is just a matter of a lot of time with soft toothbrush and water, and it's under way. I haven't even taken the rolling stock out of the silt-caked boxes yet. It's not going to get any worse than it already is :/

Oh, and the snail you gave me is now part of the menagerie hiding in the swamp between the tracks on one of my curved modules!

I'm not that skilled a builder - my proudest achievement was getting a PennLUG-track-compatible curve and switch worked out - but I'm a longtime railfan as well as a LEGOholic, and a frothing enthusiast for public displays. Especially with trains in them. Traaaaiiiinnnnns . . .

I really like to go to train shows and display LEGO layouts that are just as pretty and dramatic as any HO or N scale exhibit they have. Motion. Landscaping. Logical flow between scenes. Multiple consists at once. Ballasted track. Hidden jokes. Grand curves.

Bare baseplates are eeeeeevil.

In non-brick life, I'm a game designer. Munchkin is my fault; blame me.

Welcome to the forum Steve. I hope we see you again at Brickworld this year.

From the West...

Post  randomdan on Sun Apr 06, 2014 4:26 pm

Hello all,

As you may have gathered from my username, I'm Dan. I hail from the Pittsburgh area where I'm an active member in the Steel City LUG. My main areas of interest are the space (with a heavy dose of monorail), pirate, and castle themes.

Model railroading was a big part of my hobby life as a teenager (bookended by Lego as a child and now again as an adult), but trains are still a big part of my life as I'm currently a software engineer at Ansaldo STS (you probably know them as Union Switch & Signal). I work on a dedicated team supporting CSX's dispatching operations.

I've always wanted to build a baseplateless space scene with mobile buildings, shipping crates, and vehicles... something that you could take outside, drop down anywhere, and it would look like explorers on an alien planet. The world is a blank slate!

Hello all. My name is Bobby my wife's name is Samantha and my 5 year old sons name is Kaleb. We live in Millmont.

Been collecting since October last year and have a bit over 400 sets including most all cmf to date. We also have started a group for kids at our local library. Dusty lego does nothing for us. Although the extra pieces we have is around 80 pounds and they like it. We also loan our sets out to local bussiness for display.

Recently got all the xmas sets and cant wait to display them for others to see. Wanted to join to be able to trade for brick or whatever. Dont really do moc much. I have done a few polybag size ones, but nothing large.

Hope to hear from others sometime.

Hello!

I'm Matt Csenge, I'm a train builder and active member of I LUG NY (please teach me how to submit PennLUG dues and I gladly will). I'm from the NY-metro area, currently living in Illinois as I pursue a master's degree in civil engineering, specializing in railroads (track design in particular). Then likely back to the East Coast for me.

I'm wicked fond of model railroads and try to build my trains with as much detail as possible in brick. Favorite railroad is the New York, New Haven & Hartford. I also like quirky bits of fun mixed into supposedly "serious" layouts.

Glad to be here!

Hello to all at PennLUG!

I am Glenn Holland, I'm a freshman at York College of Pennsylvania pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Hopefully I will be working for the Morgan Motor Company after I graduate. I'm a huge fan of trains, my pride and joy is my model of the Pennsylvania Railroad #3768. There's more at home, of course, but at college, space is limited to Lego Digital Designer. When the semester ends I'm planning on building much more.

Happy to be a part of a great club!

Greetings from the First State

Post  audio525 on Sun Mar 29, 2015 11:20 am

Hello Everybody,

My name is Josh Grassi, I'm a big fan of city/town builds as well as train layouts and general nerd for LEGO (aren't we all). I started playing/building with LEGO as a kid and then for this reason or that I put them away for some years. I got back into them right around when the R2-D2 set came out and it's snowballed from there. Currently, I'm working on a turntable for a train setup/layout I'm trying to bring to life.

I look forward to interacting with everyone on the forum!

Hi, I'm Dan. I'm currently in the process of moving to greater Harrisburg. I think I've met most of the group over the years - I've been a regular at conventions for a while and usually volunteer at BrickFair events. Did this forum really only start in late 2009? I remember crashing a PennLUG Sandcrawler speed build at BrickFair that year.

I build in pretty much every theme, but haven't been as active with town and train as I'd like in recent years. I'm looking forward to actually being near town/train builders again - since things fell apart for me a few years ago, I've gotten used to either flying to events or driving a few hours to get to GFLUG shows (both of which make it difficult to bring big MOCs). I'll keep travelling to events after I get to PA, too - I'm active with BioniLUG and already have plans to run an FOL display at a few Maker Faire events for them and invite other LUGs to join in.

It's still not certain when/where I'll be in PA (actually buying a house in PA and selling the house in FL is taking longer than expected), but I can't wait to get back to displaying and building again. I should be able to show up at a PennLUG meeting sometime in the next few months, and I've also committed to this year's BrickFair New England and BrickFair Virginia.

Hello all,

My name is Matthew Lech. Im a huge LEGO fan. I am currently part of SteelCityLUG and wish to join this LUG so i can attend many other events that either LUG's may not attend the same event.
Im looking forward to attending a meeting some time, but i am currently 3 hours away from both LUG's. Also i should be attending Philly Brick Fest.

Thank You!

Hello Matt

Bummer that you have such a long drive to a LUG. Most of the PennLUG folks live anywhere between Harrisburg and Philadelphia or Allentown. Someone gets stuck driving 2 hours no matter where we hold the meetings, but we do move them around to be fair to everyone. Our March meeting is out in Lemoyne PA, so maybe that one will be a little closer for you than the ones near me. snail KC

Hey there

Post  sammoe on Sun Mar 20, 2016 3:47 pm

Hello all, Sam Moehler here, I am friends with Matt (Jeffory). I like to build trains the most, when I can. Right now I am working on 5 passenger cars in LDD and a MOC engine. I want to join PennLUG so I can attend some events with you all and hopefully run my engines on the awesome layouts you make. I am attending Philly brickfest (the only reason is to see PennLUGs layout) and should be able to bring 2 engines, no cars yet.

Hi my name is Joe

Post  Isrowei on Tue Apr 12, 2016 4:30 pm

Hey everyone, my name is Joe and I've been a .. ah.. lurker.. in the eastern US Lego community for many years... since the mid 90's and LUGNET was the place to be and Ebay was the only place to buy bricks (cheap too!). Since the beginning days of Bricklink I've been running a small online shop for over 15 years and floated in and out of MANY LUGs (WamaLUG, DixieLUG, NELUG, etc) as I moved around in the military. Since moving to the great state of PA in the recent past, I've decided this is a good time to get a bit more connected into the Lego community.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and especially the May meeting since it'll be in Allentown which is where I work! (though I live an hour south... ah commutes)

Thanks for having me!

Hey Sam, sorry for being late to the game but welcome. It was nice to meet you at the meeting. If you come to Philly BrickFest you will be in train heaven.

Welcome to PA, Joe and welcome to PennLUG. Because PA is such a big state, our meetings are all across the map (those usually central and eastern PA).

Post  Corndog67 on Sun May 01, 2016 10:31 pm

Hey everyone!

I saw you guys at Brickfest the other day and asked to get involved. I was directed here, so here I am! About me: I've been building with LEGO for as long as I can remember. I've played a lot of LEGO video games too. I'm primarily a minifig and minifig accessory collector. I like keeping all my pieces organized so I can always make the perfect figure for any occasion. Most of my builds are set a post-apocalyptic universe; the world has moved on and left behind both the living...and the dead. I'm a big fan of Fallout, The Walking Dead, and King's Dark Tower, so that informs a lot of my work. I consider myself a friendly guy, so feel free to drop me a line anytime. Thanks for having me!

Welcome to the forums. We also have a decent presence on facebook as well, but all our club mailers and whatnot come from the forums here. I'm similarly a fan of post-apoc as are several others I think. Look forward to talking to you more.
