Perry Lamb

Perry first became associated with the NMRA while living in Boise, Idaho in the early 1990’s but didn’t join until 1998 after moving to Kennesaw, a suburb of Atlanta.  However, Perry’s first experience with trains came at the very early age of 6 months, when he received his first Lionel HO Scale train set for Christmas.

Perry is a Board Member of the Piedmont Division of the NMRA, a Merit Badge Counselor for the Division’s very successful Railroading Merit Badge program, a supporter and participant of the Achievement Program and currently coordinates the Division’s Train ‘N Camp clinic program.  Perry was an assistant chair of the NMRA 2013 National Convention.

Perry models the current landscape of prototype railroading in the Western United States, building a freelanced Class 1 railroad, the Utah, Colorado and Western Railroad.  This railroad also owns all of Amtrak’s equipment, except that in California and the NW Corridor and has completed the purchase of Norfolk Southern and is in the process of repainting all those black locomotives a pleasing shade of gray.  If not here, Perry would be on a range.
