Welcome aboard, Tom. I think you'll find a lot of members agreeing with your opinion of wiring.

Welcome aboard, Nick. The narrow gauge crowd here is active and growing, so you'll fit right in. I think it's your wife that has the problem, you're normal.

Welcome to the forum, Nick. Like you, I model in HO, but satisfy my narrow gauge urges by dabbling in HOn3. My thoughts are to address those urges head on instead of letting the fester in the background.

I've been in HO model railroading (on and off) for 61 years, and have decided to make the leap to HOn3. I have just ordered two Blackstone C-19's to start out with, along with Carsten's HOn3 Annual... but I still have a lot of questions. I'm looking forward to "learning from the masters" here on Railroad-Line. I have my FSM structures, and my Digitrax Super Chief system, so I'm not entirely starting from scratch.

One question for starters... can a member post his own avatar? (If so, 'how do I go about that?) See 'ya around the yard....

Bob, welcome to the Forum. It is indeed a good time for HOn3 modelers. I picked up a C-19 this summer and it sure is sweet.

As you probably know, we have a separate HOn30/HOn3 Forum, so we look forward to your participation there.

As for avatars, just upload your picture to this thread: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5759&whichpage=45

Either I, or one of the other Administrators will take it from there.

Thanks, Bruce... I was at our local train store today and saw a Blackstone K-27 with snow plow & the Flying RG herald. (I may be in serious trouble...$$$$)

Thanks again... Bob

Hello everyone. My name is Stephen and I am working on a modern day Prince Edward Island Railway. CN pulled out in December 1989 and the rails were lifted a few years later. I want to tie in the "New" PEIR with a couple of other maritime short lines and give CN a run for its money. I'm looking forward to meeting the RLF members and picking up some detailing, scratch building and layout tips.

I'm from Christchurch, New Zealand.
Ive been a model railroader for about 20 years, I guess my Dad got me interested in the hobby as he modeled NZR 9mm scale.
I model the Western Pacific Railroad and my layout is Proto-freelance set in 1965-1970 and my scenery is loosely based on The Feather River Canyon and Altamont Pass.
The layout is 5ft 8inches x 10ft 6inches and is controlled by DCC with a Digitrax Zephyr, three tethered throttles and infrared.

You may be aware that Christchurch has had four major earthquakes in the last two years, the last on on Dec 23 caused damage to my old layout and further damage to my garage where the layout situated, as a result I decided to deconstruct my old layout (12ft x 15ft) and build a smaller more portable layout using some different construction and scenery techniques.



I used to be Indecisive... now I'm not so sure !

Stephen and Phillip,

Thanks for introducing yourselves to the crew.

Stephen, you have developed an interesting premise for your model railroad. With short lines and possible coastal scenes, it could be a knockout.

Phillip, I'm glad to hear that you are bouncing back from the earthquakes. Have fun with the new layout.

I'm very pleased to be here Bruce. I am still working on my "History" to try and give the line a believable feel and I plan on running ALCO and MLW power since that was the dominate power here up until the early to mid 90's so it would be cheap and readily available for my start up date.

Hey all. I have been enjoying your forum and all of the talent assembled here. I am a restoration carpenter in Baltimore, Maryland. I am a life-long model railroader, that has had most of my models in boxes for the past few years. With the exception of the On3 around the Christmas tree, my trains live in boxes. I have two girls and they are getting into "girl" things. I am the only "boy" in the house, so I am hoping to get back into this where I can. Living in a Baltimore row house doesn't allow for much modeling space, but we'll see how it goes.

My specific interest is with Baltimore prototypes, ie. the Western Maryland, the B&O and the Ma and Pa. I am a history nut, so really enjoy the research, but interestingly enough, I also enjoy the freedoms of freelancing. "Prototypical-freelancing" was seemingly invented for me.

Hopefully I will have something meaningful to add, besides all of the above drivel. For now, I am going back to reading and digesting everything you all have here and I will chime in occasionally when I might have something to add.

Hi – I’m very new to actual model railroading – have been an avid ‘watcher’ & reader for many years, & more recently, an attendee at train shows. I live in Mansfield Twp, NJ (from a dairy farm in VT – originally Wash. State). I love the small steam locomotives & turn of the century scenes – logging (used to have a sawmill on the VT farm), mining, just about any industry – mountain scenes and small farms.

I have a Bachman Shay & a Climax & about 10 cars in On30. Then I have a variety of garage sale HO steam engines & various cars (2 small Rivarossis are my favorite locos.) I’ve started collecting the laser craftman kits when I can catch them cheap enough on eBay. I’m building my 1st kit - Bar Mills shack pack – & loving it!
Unfortunately, I’m still working full time, but decided I couldn’t wait any longer to at least start a diorama. I have 2 planned –a logging train (HO) with mountain farm scene and a sugaring scene (On30) in VT with covered bridge, sugar house with all the internal stuff – horses & sugar wagon, etc. I’m learning to do rocks & trees (a huge interest of mine) & can’t wait to start the barn from Branchline & Pickens Place from Campbell.
Some day I’ll get to build a real running set-up. Sometimes I let the trains run around the dining room table…which I can do for a couple weeks at a time, since I’m on my own. Six kids all across the country to visit – 6 grandkids & counting. That’s about it! I'll see if I can post the 2 little sheds..

Matt & Trudy,

Thanks for introducing yourselves to the Crew.

Trudy, that is a great way to get started in the hobby. BTW, there is a large contingent of members from New Jersey, including me.

Welcome!
