Dan Morgan

Dan Morgan fell in love with model trains at the age of six when he visited an NMRA Convention in Seattle with his father. Forty two years later, his passion remains just as strong. After achieving a successful career in architecture, Dan’s particular interest is within layouts and buildings. With a wealth of knowledge on the subject, Dan loves nothing more than sharing this with others and is delighted in the forum of members who are brought together over the hobby they have in common. Dan lives with his wife Helen in Washington. As a professional painter, Helen has learnt through Dan about Model Trains and they now enjoy working on projects together. The only member of the family who isn’t allowed to join in is their over-enthusiastic Labrador called William who has been strictly banned from the workshop! You can find Dan on Google here!

    i am downsizing and need to dispose of HO gauge model train ‘stuff’ including track, train cars, model houses etc. some are quite old and in good repair. i do not want to throw them away. i would rather donate them to a model train club where they might be used and appreciated. can you recommend a club or facility that might be interested? many thanks. mm

    Hey Mike. Our local model train club here in town would be able to use it. We’ve been working pretty hard to get the layout set up. The only problem is our lack of operating equipment. We currently have a roster of 3 locos, about 500 freight and passenger cars combined, and about 6 cabooses. All were donated to the club.

    Send me an e-mail at and we can discuss it.

    Mike if you cant find any one that needs HO stuff let me know. I am going to start a HO lay out soon. I dont have a budject but I will start one some way. There is not a club anywhere around here in Ms. I enjoyed it very much. I have Mr. Dans books and they have answered most all questions I had to get started.
