    I'm not new to "All aboard" but I haven't interacted much since joining. My grandfather, Andy Riehl, started with the Frisco in Poplar Bluff around 1916 and moved to Chaffee in 1929. He remained there until his retirement in 1959. He made engineer in 1933. I was born in 1949 and remember him best as engineer on the passenger run from Chaffee to St. Louis. Anytime I saw him running the passenger line, he wore a starched white shirt and bow tie. I also remember him talking about Hoxie and Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. I'm in the early planning stage to build an N-scale from Cape to Oran,

    What period will you be modeling? Always glad to see more N scalers doing Frisco.
