    Hi All,

    My name is Scott and I am new at model railroading. I am not totally unfamiliar with model railroading as my dad is a collector and builder of model trains. I have been around model trains since birth. I was also into model building as a kid, as well as working in model shops for my profession.

    My interest lies in Z scale and the Central New England Railway from its start in 1899 to it's takeover by the NY,NH&H in 1904. I like the idea that it represents the turn of the century and a turning point for railroading. Another draw for me is the non-uniformity of the rolling stock.

    At this point I will try to build my own power and rolling stock. I look forward to learning and contributing to this sight.[:-wiltel]

                      In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame,

                      two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.
