The Valley Local on Model Rail Radio
I mentioned a couple months ago how big a fan I've become of model railroad podcasts. They're a great way to pass the time when you're doing something you'd rather not be doing (long commute, mowing the yard, etc.).
Well, as it turned out, the day after I posted that post I ended up being on one of my favorites - Model Rail Radio ("The Internet's Only Live Recorded Radio Show Where the Topic is the Hobby of Model Railroading"). I'd first called-into MRR on our way home from vacation back in August, 2014, but being in the car at the time wasn't ideal. I've been enjoying listing to this podcast for a while and - after going through an 18 month expansion of the layout - I figured I had some new news to share. So I called in again this past April and the show was just recently posted.
And, for the contrast and to keep these 'casts together, the one from 2014 is here (starts at 40:10 and the connection drops - heh, or Tom just got tired of hearing me ramble - after 6 minutes or so).
So if you're looking for a distraction from cleaning your pool or unloading mulch this weekend, check'em out. And be sure to look at the list of other model railroad podcasts and listen in. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable and informative they can be.
