 On the topic of LEGO®:
  Welcome to Plateland Station
 
  Well, I'm attempting to use MOCPages as my new web site for my LEGO train hobby after several other failed attempts. Who knows I might just maintain this one!  
  Who is this guy?:   
  "I came out of the dark ages in 1997. Hi, my name is Steve." (all reply in unison: "Hi Steve.")

From ages ~4 to 11 I spent a lot of time building with LEGO® elements. In 1997 I rediscovered LEGO. It all started when I discovered a Metroliner 50% off at the hobby store I *used* to buy my N-gauge supplies at. Literally several months later I found myself organizing a train club with Ben Fleskes and Dan Parker in the Pacific Northwest (PNLTC). Now there are over 20 train clubs around the world; truly we are all crazed!. All in all my wife rather me hang around the house building LEGO trains then hangin' at the many fine Portland area micro breweries, or smoking crack, jumping off tall buildings with a parachute, standing in a cold shower fully dressed tearing up $100 bills (otherwise know as owning a boat)... 

If you have any comments feel free to send me some mail!
 
Affiliations and Interests:
PNLTC: Ben Fleskes, Dan Parker and I formed the Pacific Northwest LEGO Train Club (PNLTC) in the spring 1997. We met thru Will Chapman, the fourth member, who was actually doing train shows in Seattle prior to the club formation. Drop by and visit our site. There are thousands of pictures of the many train shows we've done including when we setup at LEGOLAND, CA in 2001!
BricWorx: Dwayne Towell and I started BricWorx (pronounced "Brick Works") in February 2001. By February 2003 our catalog has included four different train car designs, one train set, and one instruction book. This hobby business has be great; I have experienced set design, element analysis, brick acquisition, instruction layout, publishing, packaging and shipping! My dream one day is when we can source bricks and sell tens of thousands of sets rather then tens of sets! Oh, to dream!
ILTCO: Mike Walsh and I started an e-mail list we called the "International Brotherhood of LEGO Train Clubs", however borrowing the name from the IBEW (my dad's union for over 30 years) apparently wasn't politically correct enough for the AFOL masses and so we settled on the "International LEGO Train Club Organization". The list was created so all the train clubs around the world can talk "off line", out of the public's eye, and there was now also mechanism for LEGO Direct to "talk" to all the clubs at one time. Well now ILTCO has become a more formal organization and is recognized by LEGO. We've come a long way baby!
MISC: Occasionally I dabble in LEGO CAD to create building instructions and even less frequently I work on other print media and video projects based on various LEGO themes (who am I kidding, trains).
