Hi!

1. I live in Arkansas.

2. Iíve enjoyed a lot of different types of modeling - cars, ships, WW2 aircraft, and trains. I got an O-27 train one year for Christmas. It went into storage eventually. A few years later I got an HO Tyco Train set for Christmas. It got set up in numerous flat non-carpeted areas in my house. I bought more rolling stock and locos from my LHS over time. I drew up scale layout plans but never got the space to build it in the basement. Life happened. My HO set went with me. When my son was old enough, we set up my train set and ran it together. But still, no permanent place. Then 4 things happened. The kids are now all out, we moved to a different house, and my wife gave me a bedroom for model building, leather working (another hobby which may turn into an income source in retirement), and permission to build a shelf layout (which will allow the placement a a twin bed someday)!

3. My original HO layout wouldíve been free lance. The answer to that question on what this layout will be, is yes. Iím modeling the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gaige. It will be proto-lanced. In 2018 and again this past Aug/Sep for a week my family went to Silverton on vacation. I was fascinated by the mining history of the place and we got to see it first hand on a couple of guided tours and then 2 days in a rented Jeep on Jeep trails. I will be running tourist trains. I will also be running trains to support the new mining operations that have sprung up (because new smelting techniques have made mining silver and other metals In the area profitable again), and help move cattle and sheep herds seasonally in and out of the high country.

4. It will be a modern era time frame but with locomotives that the D&RGW has operated, but arenít currently operating out of Durango - partly due to availability, pricing, and me not having the skills or desire to spend time tweaking brass (at least for now). The scenery between Durango and Silverton is incredible. And due to the fact that foam insulation sheets are available and so easy to sculpt, Iím going to do my best to imitate what Iíve seen along the rails.

5. My assigned room is about 12í x 11í níchange. Iíll have 2 walls of 24Ē wide shelf, a wall of 20Ē shelf and a couple of lift outs with a short wall mounted section between them. And this will be done in HOn3. I plan to suspend a sub shelf underneath for my old HO stuff so my grandson can run some trains.

6. I like running the trains. I probably am not going to have car cards and use a clock for a time schedule but I will have regularly scheduled trains to support the tourist trade to Silverton and get the silver ore down to Durango. I like building models. But I also like running the trains.

7. I will run the NG on DCC. The HO will run on DC until I get the chance to convert it over.

Hello,

I live in Sweden and started building 1/48 scale and smaller miniatures in the late 1990s. Now I'm returning to the hobby after a long break, and want to learn more about making models look real. I've been lurking her for a while and have found the scratch builds very inspiring; I really appreciate all the links and other information that has enabled me to read about new (to me) techniques, on and off this site.

Hello everyone,

New member here, Yannis from Greece.

I have been in HO scale for many years and before that 1/48 scale airplane kits (mostly USAAF/USN/USMC from WW2 to Nam eras). In HO scale I am working on my ATSF themed (sort of prototypical) layout, set in 1969 (East LA / Pasadena / Cucamonga).

Recently I started a small journey in On30 scale, and in particular late 1860s and 1870s. (The plan is to have a small island freelance On30 layout in the middle of the along the walls HO scale layout.)
I mostly enjoy scratchbuilding, kitbashing and weathering in HO scale, and I guess I ll move along the same lines in On30 in parallel to HO.

The On30 inspiration and decision to start working on something in On30, came from my favorite theme world in Disneyland Paris (Frontier-land) along with narrow gauge locomotives in other theme parks, in combination with scenes from classic old-west movies. Also I could use a freelance distraction from the HO proto-layout.

Anyhow, happy to join the community and looking forward to contribute and learn.

All the best and many thanks for accepting me as a member.
Yannis

Welcome aboard, Yannis. The On30 group is pretty active here, so I'm sure you'll fit right in.
