These pages document nearly a
decade of hacking with LEGO bricks, having collected
hundreds of sets since my first set (the older Space
Shuttle) in the fall of 1989.
I've made a small page documenting our annual
Christmas Train for 2001.
My most recent projects have been models of some
Intermodal Freight Container Cars
and freight container models, in preparation for
coming up in February 2002! I'll be bringing some of them
to the BayLUG meeting on January 5th.
I have also modeled some Canadian Pacific and VIA
Canadian trains, which
had their public debut at the SuperTrain 2001
show in Calgary, Alberta, Canada during February. I have
also recently started chasing trains in the S.F. Bay Area,
and I've put up a few Railfan pages.
BayLTC is also planning to display at the August 2002 GATS.
Another recent project was making an Ice Rink
diorama" for my LEGO Zamboni,
for display at a Season's End party for the
Northern California Women's
Hockey League (because my wife is a player).
My first interests were Space and
Town (mainly Emergency and Rescue themes). Since then, Space
has almost dropped off the list, Castles, Pirates, and
Islanders came and went, and the Trains are currently on
top, although I think I missed some of the better trains
that the LEGO companies have offered. I'm anxiously waiting
for the newer trains to look more realistic, and to not use
the larger,specific assemblies. I prefer using discrete
parts to pre-built hulks.
We don't have any kids yet, so I
don't have to share my LEGO bricks! :-)
The links to the left will take you
to various pages that document some of my past, and current,
LEGO projects. (If it's not a clickable link yet, then it's
a place holder for a page that I'm planning to write "Real
Soon Now".) If you have any trouble with any of the links,
please let me know via email to frenezulo

As a result of traveling in Europe
a few times, I've collected lots of video of a variety of
real castles, cathedrals, and trains. I've finally started
to compile a Euro-Trains tape, covering about 5 years of
travel. If you are interested in chatting about these,
please drop me a note.
I'm also interested in starting a
LEGO Train Club in the S.F. Bay Area, modeled along the
lines of the Pacific
Northwest LEGO Train Club (www.PNLTC.org). If you are local to the S.F. Bay Area, or
want to discuss 'virtual membership', please email me with
your questions, ideas, or suggestions. (Email
frenezulo at baylug.org.)
The LUGNET server hosts an NNTP
(Net News Transfer Protocol) Server, and it serves up a
number of very specific LEGO discussion groups. While some
folks can't get to this due to firewalls at their company,
LUGNET also has a Way Cool web interface to read these
groups. I think it probably does reduce the number of folks
who will regularly read and participate in the Rec.Toys.LEGO
USENET Newsgroup, but I'm really happy to find some very
specific groups to read. I like it!
I already know about the PNLTC
pages, Matt's train pages, Michael Dorniech's Everything
LEGO, and Larry P.'s pages (so I also know about the links
from their sites). I also check the KL.Net instructions
archive regularly. I'm looking for Robin (from Canada, at
Sygma Support), whose pages have vanished, and for pages
which show some of the older train sets (7700 series,
I have a lot of other hobbies
besides LEGO. If you're curious about what they are, please
