Music has been a big part of Dave’s life. He’s a child of the 70’s and is always whistling or humming something. Dave and his wife have traveled the nation and the world, and now are raising three young kids that love time with their parents and enjoy time trackside or in the basement with dad.
Dave’s Conrail Onondaga Cutoff layout has been on the cover of Model Railroader and Railroad Model Craftsman, featured in both magazines. He authored a book on model railroad signaling and interlockings that is due for publication in the spring of 2021. Camaraderie is a compelling experience for Dave and operations is his favorite part of model railroading because of how much fun operation is to share.
Dave’s a guy that believes ‘the best is yet to come’ and he’s grateful for all of it.
