About the RR

As a boy I grew up in St. Matthews, Kentucky in a small subdivision named Richlawn during the 60’s watching the L&N trains that passed just 200 feet in back of my house.  I had a small model railroad that my Father helped me build when I was 8 years old and I’ve always been fascinated by trains.  After much thought I decided to try and recreate the time and location of my fond childhood memories and so the Richlawn Railroad was born.

***** UPDATE *****

The Richlawn Railroad has been torn down and it no longer exist as we moved to a new home.

The new Richlawn Railroad V2 is under construction in our new Florida home.  It is a “around the room” shelf style layout and of course still features the L&N.

    Hi Rick
    I like your new website and just subscribed. Being mostly a model builder, I always like looking at your structures. And of course we both grew up watching L&N trains(me in Mobile). I also have a question – I lost all of my tools in a move and am having to restock. On your old blog you mentioned ehobby tools. I liked their prices and the FREE shipping – Are they still a good supplier?

      It’s good to hear from you and thanks for subscribing! It’s always nice to find another fan of “The Old Reliable”. I haven’t bought anything recently from ehobby tools, so I am going to assume that they’re still great.

      By the way, my website is still under construction and I’m looking for input on what visitors would like to see on the site. If you’ve got any suggestions I would love to hear them.

      Best wishes,
