Mark Dance lives in Vancouver with his understanding wife Christiane. He has 3 children: Sean, Carys and Isaac none of whom share his modelling passion, unfortunately. Mark has a degree in mechanical engineering (robotics) and spent 20 years as a product designer/inventor and manager. Although he has been an N scale modeler for 45 years, the Columbia & Western is the only significant layout he has built. Mark appreciates all aspects of our hobby but is especially drawn to layout design, construction and operations…and the great friendships he has made as a result!
