Here at the ole’ AML World Headquarters we've been concerned that the Kelly Questions weren’t very popular anymore… Kinda boring and uninteresting but we decided it was time to test the waters again. After a series of meetings we determined who's the most boring person in all of AML land and let him take a stab at these this hard hitting questions for a chance to find out what makes an AMLer’ tick.

It’s always fun to catch-up with folks who’ve been on the podcast before, so on this episode we visit with Tom and Bill who discovered each other through their YouTube channels. It’s a great example of the friendships that are being created through social media. They’ve become great friends and learn a lot from each other, so we thought we’d share it with the rest of the AML Nation.

The model railroad industry is more vibrant today than it’s ever been, with new manufacturers popping up almost every day. In this episode we talk to Greg McComas one who, like so many before him has created a business simply out of the need for a particular product. We first learned of Greg and his new business from our friend Stephen Atwell, owner of the very successful Midwest Model Railroad who has managed to create a destination hobby shop in a very short period of time.
