Welcome to Basement Railroader. Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Ken Cringan. My wife and I started "Leisure Time Hobbies" in downtown Nanaimo, BC in 1978 and enjoyed thirty successful years until we closed it in 2008 in order to retire.
Just as I was in my store, I am easy to get along with. If you have a question, just ask. If you have a problem with a purchase, we can work it out.
My primary hobby interest - since early childhood - is model railroading. My favourite railroad: White Pass & Yukon,
for which I have been collecting photos, paper and HOn3 models since high school. The railroads of Vancouver Island
are a close second on my long list of interests.
