    Welcome aboard. Eric. No problem with your English. A lot of us were inspired by John Allen, so you'll fit right in here.

    Hello All,
    I'm member of this forum since 2011, but was not active during all this time. As many new member here, I'm an old user of the Modelers forum.

    1) Where do you live?

    Québec city (apologize, my english is bad, I know it... )

    2) How long have you been a model railroader, and how did you get started in the hobby?

    I'm in model railroading, since I was 14, at begin, I was very impressed, as so many of us, by the work of John Allen. My first layout was a N scale copy of the «Gorre» section of the G&D. I've turn to HO scale in the last year of the past century. after what I've mad a break of the hobby from 2001 to 2009/2010. Since 2010, I've scratchbuild a lot of model, and build some kit too.

    3) Do you model a prototype railroad or freelance your layout?

    I plan to model a free lance layout : the Miskatonic Valley & Atlantic RR

    4) Do you model a certain era and/or geographic region?

    1920-1930 steam era in the H.P. Lovecraft New England.


    5) How large is your layout and what scale do you model?
    at this time I don't have layout, but I plan to begin to built a small layout in a 72" x 18" space.

    6) What's your favorite part of the hobby? And what do you enjoy least?

    Scratchbuilding, building Kit and Dio.

    7) How do you control your trains (DC, DCC, or something else)?
    N/A

    Eric.

    Hi Phil....Welcome to the forum.
    I enjoyed your video and was wondering are the Roundhouse passenger cars for the circus train? Gotta have some folks to handle all those critters.

    Hello all , like a few others in the last couple of weeks I have also joined here to find a new home because of Modelers Forum shutting down. I was one of the few N-scale modelers there , wonder if I will be one of few here as well.

    My layout is a somewhat loose interpretation of the Clay Center Line of the Rock Island on one deck and the Santa Fe around Newton Kansas ( still have to start on this part of the layout ).

    I am from the Netherlands , and besides model railroading I play golf and work as a golfclub fitter at a large golf store ( even for American standards ),

    The photo is of Manhattan Kansas on my layout

    Welcome back aboard Tom. Looks like a few from the Modelers Forum might be rejoining the Railroad Line Forum. I had joined the Modelers Forum because of John Sekirks fine posts. Looking forward to some of your modeling posts.

    Joined this Forum in 2006 but was not much of an active modeler while living In Texas. After retirement came and a move to Minnesota in 2011 we started to get active again. Found out the NE corner of this state is not where to modelers are located. Did join The Modelers Forum after an email from BVG mentioned a build of one of his kits and that site went dark today.
    Will also try to post a another intro.

    Welcome back. I know a bit about railroading south of the Appalachians, but would be interested to see more.
