Ochlocknee - Paul Beverly has been fascinated with trains since he was a young boy, but that wasn't always a good thing. He says, "Those engines were extremely monstrous and almost every night I would have a nightmare about a train running over me. I'd be on the track and couldn't get off, and just before the train would hit me, I'd wake up."
But as he grew older, those nightmares turned into day dreams. "I wanted an electric train when I was growing up, but I didn't feel like we could afford it, so I didn't ask for it," says Beverly.
Finally, when he had a family of his own, he would have a chance to buy one, or so he thought. "When I got grown," he says, "none of my children seemed to be interested in it, so that didn't give me an excuse to do it."
But then came retirement. Beverly says, "I built the building in 1999, then started putting things in it after that." And now, he's busy building and playing with his extensive, grown-up, train collection.
"I enjoyed building this thing as much as I do playing with it, cause it's a challenge, and when you've accomplished a challenge, you've done something," says Beverly. Something that he thoroughly enjoys. He says, "I love it. I love it." A love from childhood that continues to chug down the tracks.
Paul Beverly says although model trains are fun, it can be an expensive hobby, so people just starting out may want to check out garage sales for beginner pieces.
