Welcome to your Friendly Railroad: the Southern Pacific RR Co.

Hi, my name is Enzo Fortuna, and I live in the small town of Assago, just out of Milan , in North Italy.

I start to be a Railroad fan ....well, you see the picture ?
The Man was my father... with me and my first train! (1952)

My passion in the hobby of model railroading is the
Southern Pacific Railroad
that once was one the biggest Railroad Company in US ,
and which I model in N scale.

N scale was always my choise: when I was 16, I've buy my first N scale steam model, an Atlas Rivarossi Indian Harbor 0-8-0.
This was the first time when N scale US steam loco’s was available here in Italy …. I must say horrible things compared with the present models.
When I was 26 I take the occasion of a vacation in the US and .... settle in Santa Cruz, CA, where I've lived several years working in Palo Alto and other places in the Valley. I must repeat me, but it was the time when the first silicon chip contaminate this world.....

And this is one of the reason my present layout takes the name "The Valley before the Silicon"
I've start a Blog on this Layout construction, see here the left banner.

This site was created as a labour of love, not only to have a place where display and share my personal "experience", but also to try to "instigate" in some visitor to start some "experience" itself!

Please take your time and look around.
Enjoy your visit and hope to see you again soon.
Feel free to send me suggestions on improvements and additions.

Thanks for visiting!

Best quotes

A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere

Fast is fine, but
is everything.

"A railroad station?
That was sort o
a primitive airport,
only you didn't
have to take a cab 20 miles out of town to reach it.

".I have no special talents.
I am only passionately curious. Albert Einstein

I have a seashell collection. I keep it on the beach.

Don't try to be too optimistic; it's impossible
to smile and whistle at
the same time

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia!"
...Charles Schultz

I just put my feet in the air and move them around.
...Fred Astaire
