    Thanks for the welcome guys. After many years of thought, literally, and spending some time in Murphy NC. I am loosely basing the layout on the old L&N RR. Circa 1935 to 1945. Its geographic area is rich in scenic opportunity. I have seen allot of it. The era lets me use both Diesel and Elec, of course and the vehicles, as in cars and trucks are very unique with allot of character. The geographical area during that time will allow many varied and weathered structures with few paved roads, small town were, and still are common. I am planning three vague cities that can change. St Louis at one end with a yard and commercial area. Cincinnati with a waterfront and rail barge. And Louisville Ky. with a coal mine. Of course eventually there will be several smaller factories and a chemical plant somewhere. There is an interesting one near Copper Hill Tenn. that I should have taken pictures of when we lived there some years ago. Anyway, all this is subject to change. If anybody sees, the error of my ways, or can offer any criticism at all I would greatly appreciate it. I would like it to be built for operation also, an area I know nothing at all about. Again, thank you, I am hoping for as much advice as you seasoned Model RR's are willing to offer.

    Default Oldie but Newbie here

    Hi all,

    My dad introduced me to n scale 40 years ago. Now that I’m full-fledged “adulting”, I’m finding I’ve become more nostalgic about my childhood and looking to take up railroading again with my family.

    We have tons of rolling stock and locomotives that are just crying to be run and get out of the box.

    Hoping for your help and input on where to get started.

    Not seasoned here but free track planning software might be of use if you don't already use it. XTrkCad and Scarm are two that come to mind.

    Well, I don't so much about "stupid" answers, but every member of Nscale.net I've ever met is getting a bald spot in about the same place, about where the typical person scratches their head while trying to make sense of something.

    Default Hello from Australia

    Hello, my name is Rob. I live in Ballarat in Australia. I'm building a smallish (7'10"x 3'3" or 2.4m x 1m) N scale layout set somewhere in America where it's very flat and there are grain silos. Mainly because my layout is very flat and has a grain silo. Progress is slow.

    Anyway, thanks for reading.
    regards
    Rob
