Phillip D. Weston


Retired after 40 years of service as a Wildlife Biologist and Wildland Fire Management Specialist with the US Fish & Wildlife Service and USDA Forest Service. Former Director of the National Interagency Prescribed Fire Training Center. I also served as a Planning Section Chief on various Federal Incident Management Teams responding to such emergencies as wildfires, hurricanes, floods, and oil spills.

I joined BBMRA 15+ years ago and currently serve as the HO Division Coordinator and also as a member of the BBMRA's Annual Tallahassee Model Railroad Show & Sale Committee.

As a youngster, I grew up on a property in upstate New York adjoining the Erie Lackawanna Railroad. I enjoyed my Lionel O Scale railroad. After distributing my collection to my 3 adult sons for my 9 grandchildren to enjoy I discovered a residual box of HO trains in our storage. Since the grandkids were coming to FL for a Christmas visit I put up a quickly assembled 4x8' table in my garage to run trains during the Christmas season. They enjoyed them so much that I couldn't put them away and I began learning model railroading on a smaller scale and finer detail. That layout has grown larger with more detail since. T-TRAK is a different twist. I enjoy T-TRAK HO Modules because they allow us to build one captivating scene after another with outstanding portability that allows the interests & talents of all our HO Division members to be interconnected and displayed for the enjoyment of others.
