Far more people earn their living from railroading in this hobby than we realize, we have our very own "Spoon" but this episode shows how one man can being locomotive engineer as much as he loves model railroading. Operating 240 car unit trains by yourself on the Québec North Shore and Labrador can be just as challenging as building a truly magnificent O-scale layout.
