Typically you’ll find Donovan Duggins in the model train building working, repairing and restoring the many different scales that we represent.  He is  present nearly every weekend, working hard to keep the models functioning. Donovan grew up in South Florida and was born at the Homestead James Archer Hospital. He is a frequent rider of Amtrak, and loves riding back and forth down the east coast. Donovan graduated from Killian Senior High School a few years ago, and aspires to be a Train Engineer for his career. In the meantime, he wishes he could shrink down to HO Size and enjoy the various model displays throughout the country.
