Dale Rood

Dale Rood came to the Model-Railroad.TV team with a deep passion and knowledge of all things train—no matter the scale. From his favorite gauge, HO, to the real thing that cuts through the countryside of his hometown in southeastern Minnesota, Dale’s love for trains runs deep and is punctuated by his signature engineer’s cap that he is never without. A retired pastor, Dale now finds more time to spend with his beloved family. (Even though he and his wife must travel cross-country to visit them—all the more time to go train chasing!) A real go-getter, Dale also is able to dedicate more time to his trains and models—once he starts a project, he won’t stop until it’s finished! Dale’s major interest in models lies in prototypical operation, or achieving the most realistic movement and speed possible. As the old adage goes, “Don’t ask how fast it can go, but how much it can pull!” The host of several favorite video segments on Model-Railroad.TV, including the Jackson Street Roundhouse series, the World’s Gre

Elliott Cowton

Elliott can't really remember when he first became interested in trains. His father's first job on leaving school was working on the LNER under Gresley, so Elliott always grew up appreciating the finer points of railways. Elliot now works part time in his local model shop. He is a member of the EM Gauge Society and both the Swanage and the Churnet Valley Railway projects.

Geoff Elliot

Geoff's first experience with model railways was an 8ft x 4ft Hornby layout his dad built him in the garage. But as Geoff concedes: "Knowing what I know now about model railways, I suspect it was really for him." Geoff has a reputation as a compulsive layout builder and has made five Hornby Trackmat layouts for people as well as several layouts for others at the club.

Ken Borowski

Ken Borowski has been a modeler for nearly 20 years. A native of Chicago, he grew up surrounded by planes and trains and, like most little boys, developed his passion for models early in life. Now living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Ken works for Delta Airlines. Modeling is a favorite hobby of Ken’s to get him through those long Minnesota winters, but Ken also enjoys the great outdoors and golfing when the weather cooperates. Ken and his superb Clinchfield were featured in N-Scale Magazine in 2008. You can get to know Ken and his Clinchfield right here on Model-Railroad.TV.

Nigel Overington

Nigel began his lifetime's interest in model railways with a Hornby Dublo 3 Rail on a ply board hinged to the bedroom wall. That was stored when he joined the Royal Navy and only re-appeared for trade-in when he returned to the hobby many years later. He only had time for limited modelling during his time at sea, so his first real layout had to wait until he left the Royal Navy on medical grounds. Apart from visiting shows, clubs and manufacturers for MRTV, Nigel kept up to date through his long-standing membership of Southern Locomotives Limited, as well as both the Bluebell and Swanage Railways and the South Western Circle. Nigel added: "The members of Fareham & District Model Railway Club have the misfortune to be the recipients of the majority of my constant modelling questions." Nigel passed away in 2010. He was a lovely man, and a passionate railway modeller. He is still very much missed.

That was stored when he joined the Royal Navy and only reappeared for trade-in when he returned to the hobby many years later. He only had time for limited modeling during his time at sea, so his first real layout had to wait until he left the Royal Navy on medical grounds. That was built in the loft of his current home but suffered from the usual temperature extremes and is now hidden behind storage. He has dabbled with odd boards since, including one in N-gauge, but there’s been nothing permanent. Nigel readily admits that designing, but never building, dozens of layouts has, in part, been due to a skill gap. But he sees that as a major advantage working on ModelRailway.TV. He said: “When Ashdown asked me to help set up the films, it was on the basis that I was well qualified to talk on behalf of modelers rather than at them." “While stuck at home, my railway interests have developed
