From the new issue of Ztrack Magazine:

Living The Train Life

Trains are interesting little things. You think about all of these people collecting and selling the 3"-4" metal boxes that run around in circles on a track. I will admit, it’s pretty cool and it really is so much more than that. So, you may be wondering why I am writing here?

My name is Madeline. I’m 15 years old, and you could say I’m pretty close with Rob Kluz. Many of you think of Rob as a business man, a work partner, an acquaintance, and a friend. To me, he is completely different - he’s my dad! For as long as I can remember there were trains surrounding me. There were boxes of them in every room of the house. Train related stuff was everywhere. It has always been a part of my life.

My dad often asks my sisters, my mom and I to help out with the business and we always have (yeah, right - edit). We always have something to do, whether it be shipping orders, sorting items, filing papers …and so much more. My dad’s “train friends” as we call them (well, I guess you!) visit the house to do business, or other times to see my dad’s layout. I cannot even remember the amount of train shows I’ve been to in my short life....
