Often referred to as simply “Legs” around AML world headquarters, Lionel has been a model railroader ever since coming down the stairs christmas morning at the tender age of five years old only to discover the train going around the tree had his name on it. Lionel rides his Harley all over North America and spends as much time as possible with his son Peter.
His railroad first appeared on the cover of Model Railroader in February 1994 edition.
Lionel is best known as the builder of the Allegheny and Lackawanna Southern, a 20’ X 30’ HO Scale layout. He also built two project railroads for Model Railroader Magazine: the Northwest Timber Company and the Appalachian Central. Lionel wrote the monthly column Workin’ on the Railroad for MR from July 1998 until May 2005, then continued to serve as a contributing editor for another six years after that.
A sometime stand-in for Uncle Fester of the Addams family and one half of the juggling team Giggles & Glee where the only thing he could juggle was the books. Uncle Larry is known as AML's electronics wiz.
He can be a kind, sensitive, caring individual enjoying long walks on the beach while poking things with a stick.
He also just as comfortable in his role as the sole proprietor of Snausages, the meat that cooks itself as well as being an avid user of Androids cream.
Still he finds time to fill in as an AML associate director and resident cabin boy when necessary. Often times he'll become a tech-support specialist or subject matter expert... The topic doesn't matter but he can be the expert.
Often referred to as the new friggin' guy around the world headquarters of the old AML network, he's a huge fan of Mrs. Howell from Gilligans Island.
He often plays the part of the guy who has nothing to say on ViewerMail usually as someone with too much to say.
We truly just referred to him as our freaking electronics genius but this description wouldn't be complete without letting the public know how much he desires to find a 35 foot Twinkie. creakychairmodels.com

Shane lives in the Kansas City area and he's a member of the Heartland N-trak Club.
He'd also like us to mention he's a huge Pittsburgh Penquins fan but we ran out of room.
