Welcome to My World Of LEGO® Trains (and other MOC's)
Well, After many years of not having a website for my MOC's, I am now using MOCPages as my new web site.
is this guy?:
"Hi, my name is David VinZant, and I am an AFOL (Adult Fan Of LEGO®.")
Since I was five LEGO® has always been part of my life.
I would build ships with my Dad, that were completely SNOT (Studs Not On Top), long before it was ever called that.
LEGO® has always been a way for me to be creative and build my imagination.
I do like to build in all the themes, although I enjoy Town/Trains the most.
The first time I saw LEGO® trains were in the LEGO® catalog in late 80's.
They had a large selection of 4.5v sets and the beginning of the 9v line.
When I was about 17, my Dad and I went to the 1997 GATShow in Portland. That is when I first heard about the PNLTC.
This was also the first time I got see LEGO® Trains setup like a model railroad.
It was really mind blowing seeing so many sets and original MOC's.
From then on I went to as many PNLTC shows as I could, and about a year later, I became a PNLTC member.
Greater Portland Lego Railroaders was formed August 28th, 2004.
GPLR is one of two clubs that formed immediately after the PNLTC voted to disband so as to better focus our growing member base on our local areas.
We are a group of adult LEGO train enthusiasts who enjoy getting together to talk LEGO, drink some Henry's soda and of course put on great train displays for the public!
Ben Fleskes, Dan Parker and Steve Barile formed the
Pacific Northwest LEGO Train Club (PNLTC) in the spring of
1997. They all met thru Will Chapman, the fourth member, who was
actually doing train shows in Seattle prior to the club
formation. Drop by and visit our site. There are thousands
of pictures of the many train shows we've done including
when we setup at LEGOLAND, CA in 2001!
Occasionally I dabble in LEGO® CAD to create building instructions.
