Welcome to THE MERIDIAN SPEEDWAY website and now blogspot. This would be the first posting. I have varied interests within the realm of railfanning and model railroading. While the primary purpose of this website and blog is to focus on my proto-freelanced model railroads, I am also a railroad photographer.
The two do go hand-in-hand as prototype exposure rolls over into modeling accuracy and realism in operation. The photos also serve as excellent reference material for modeling.
In the past I have sent out photo essay e-mails to those on my distribution list. As I come across those older essays I will repost them here for ease of access. I will also share future photo-essays on this blog.
I am looking forward to the conversations that will transpire on this forum. The intent is to share, learn, and have fun! It is expected that all comments will be respectful of the various skill levels of the participants. Some of us will teach, others will learn, and the lucky ones will do both!
