About the Author Lou Sassi has been a model railroader since his pre-teen years in Saratoga Springs, New York. He started building his HO scale Boston & Maine West Hoosic Division Railroad, which was featured in July 1988 Model Railroader, 1999 Great Model Railroads, and Allen Keller s Great Model Railroad video #23. In 2008, Lou dismantled the West Hoosic Division, and he and his wife, Cheryl, moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, to be nearer their oldest son, Adam, his wife, Lynne, and their two children, Heather and Joshua.
