Hi everyone, I've joined this forum because I'm trying to learn all I can about the railroad history of Missouri, especially SE of KC, around Clinton and the surrounding areas. My family and I are in the process of moving to the area from Sacramento, California. Although I'm not there yet, I'm ready to put in an offer immediately when we find the place we're looking for. (So when I registered as from Missouri that's not totally accurate yet, but figured I'd be likely to forget to update it later.) We're looking for acreage to be able to live off the land as much as possible, as well as expand our outdoor railroading operations, as I'm currently into G-scale garden railroading and 7-1/2" gauge live steam. I always love learning about full-size railroading history though, and like to collect models to represent the history. In G-scale I've primarily collected SP and UP, but also some Missouri Pacific and Katy. Sadly, I do not yet have any Frisco equipment... obviously that will need to change in the near future!
