    @Klatu

    Will you be building a layout that will be very realistic or will you be including elements from your other interests? As you know, model making is model making, only the scale changes.

    We hope you will bring techniques from those other areas. It may sound strange, but many excellent techniques used by scale modelers are not known to model railroaders.

    Welcome to the fold!
    Use what you know about the world to model…

    Icon6 Hi

    I'm not much of a poster, but I surely do enjoy (and learn from) the many posts that I've read.
    My main reason for registering is to be able to access the many photos that I've been missing.

    You probably won't be hearing from me much; but be assured that I will be reading.

    Thanks:
    Rick

    Hi Again:

    Forgot to mention: I have no layout as yet.
    But been collecting motive power, rolling stock and an NCE control set for years.

    Retired just last week. Maybe I'll finally get started.

    Thanks Again:
    Rick

    Welcome aboard! @IlTraction

    By your moniker, are you by any chance a juice jacker? We are here, just drowned out.
    Even if you do not have a layout, that doesn't mean you just have to hang out and be silent. Feel free to add your two cents to any discussion.

    By the way, a layout doesn't always have to be a giant basement filler. My first foray into overhead power is only two feet square. My little Garfield Ridge Streetcar Museum has given me a lot of pleasure.

    Greetings all.

    I registered to lurk for a bit at first, as I'm not really a N-modeller (yet), but it seems the stars are being aligned in that direction. I guess you can say I'm being preemptive, we'll see what comes of it.

    Be seeing you around.

    High! I got this a little backwards. I posted elsewhere first the other day and now here. I'm Rick, double retired. Retired as a platoon SGT US Army in 96, Armor (tanker, M60A1/A3 M1/IP/A1). 61 years old now. Retired again, this time from farming (small beef and grain operation) almost 2 years ago. Now I mostly do grandpa's daycare. Been messing with model trains sense I was a kid. Mostly HO. I did build a couple of N layouts for a couple of sons years ago. I started to build another HO layout for me a couple of years ago but farming got in the way and it didn't get very far! So now I decided to start again. About 2 weeks go, one son living in Fargo ND told me that with a pending move he will have room for a layout, N scale and that he was thinking about a KATO starter freight set. So my wife and I got it for him for his birthday the 3rd of this month. Huge mistake because that cause me to rethink what I was doing. So now I'm coming over to the dark side! Another son is going to get my HO stuff as he too has room for a layout. I Hunt, fish, SCUBA dive and have some older farm tractors, a backhoe and an old Cat D4 7U dozer. I'm a member of another train board, the antique Cat machinery owners club plus that forum and several old/antique tractor forums. I'm also into shooting and reloading.

    Rick
