Other Interests: Trains
Outside of the field, Ron's other accomplishments include having built one of the largest operating high rail, 0 scale toy train layouts in the Pacific Northwest, with 2 operating windfarms. The layout contains detailed scenery from ancient and modern Israel, as well as the Pacific Northwest.
Ron works as a volunteer docent at the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation on a weekly basis. The Museum houses three steam locomotives, including the famous Southern Pacific #4449 which pulled the American Freedom Train during the U.S. Bicentenial.
Before volunteering at the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation, Ron served as a Trustee for five years on the Board for the Clark County Historical Society. During his tenure there he helped with the design and fundraising to build two new permanant SP&S Railway Exhibits at both the Museum and the Vancouver, WA Amtrak Depot.
