    aboard Bambamshere. A lot of good things have happened to N-Scale since the 80's and 90's.

But I have started back up again slowly. I will probably start with Kato Unitrack. It is probably the easiest right now.

    Anyways I will stop babbling now.

    Thanks for the add

    Hi,
    New member here. I'm Mike, living in Iowa. Retired USAF officer and now an HR director in my second career. Been a railroader off and on for my whole life. Discovered N Scale in 1996 and had one layout in our present house but never finished. Dismantled it since I got into homebrewing (my other hobby). Now with a 3 year old granddaughter it is time to start anew.

    Model modern BNSF. Going to replicate the MRR Salt Lake Route as I am already a Kato Unitrack aficionado. Not sure what industries yet and have recently discovered DCC and sound! So, I'm here to learn from all of you.

    Welcome, @Bambamshere! This is a good locale for information and Tomfoolery. After you have some unknown minimum number of posts, you will be able to share photos. We look forward to seeing your progress.

    Hi
    I have just joined up.
    I live in Edinburgh and have just been bitten by the NScale bug - maybe a bit to do with lockdown too.
    Using the restriction of an approx 2' by 4' board, I was interested to see what I could produce, for shunting but also the possiblity of continous running (although it comes round very quickly on a 2 x 4 layout)

    Having laid (screwed down actually) the track, I am collecting rolling stock. My idea is to have a set of UK trains as well as a USA set. I must say that the USA ones are very attractive.
    NScale.net is a great resource and place to start.
    Looking forward to exploring more and more of it.
    Cheers.

    @NEdinburgh

    Welcome to the forums and to the hobby. A 2' X 4' area is going to be a bit restrictive (stating the obvious sorry) but is doable for what you intend and is a nice "starter size" to work with and to get your feet wet on

    The minimum track radius for N Scale (generally speaking) is 9 3/4" so your 24" wide board will work for that; although, you'll be limited as to what engines/rollingstock you will be able to run due to the radius. I am sure someone with "shunting experience" will be able to offer you a lot of ideas if that is the way you want to go. You could easily (I would think) have a run around track (continuous loop) on the outside of the board with a fairly decent "shunting yard" in the middle of it.
    Cheers Tony

    Greetings and welcome, NEdinburgh, to Nscale and to the forum. Like you, I am new to the forum and building small to start with as well. You will find a lot of good information and good help on this forum. Brouse a bit, and you will get some really great ideas as you see what others are doing so well.

    Cheers. arnold

    Moose bid you all a hearty welcome to the greatest wee n-scale forum on the interweb!

    Moose would like to remind you all of the rules around here. Yes! Thar be rules and none of you, Moose repeat, none of yo-- oh look, purtty flowers!

    Hmmm, Moose mean, in order to keep this forum ship-shape, no shenanigans, or else!


    And to ensure it's kept that way, there's an oath all nSn'ers must take!

    Repeat after Moose:

    [fill in yer pronoun here] am a [man, woman, moose, wombat, bear, couch potato, cuddly-as-a-kitten, Reach Police officer, slayer of dragons, Bob your uncle],
    But [fill in yer pronoun here] can change,
    If [fill in yer pronoun here] have to,
    [fill in yer pronoun here] guess...

    No, wait, wrong club...


    Repeat after Moose:

    [fill in yer pronoun here] will post photos,
    [fill in yer pronoun here] will post often,
    [fill in yer pronoun here] will obey all forum rules
    [fill in yer pronoun here] will obey Moose, Lord of the Square Dance
    [fill in yer pronoun here] will n-joy playing, errr, modeling railroads and the trains that run on them
    And, [fill in yer pronoun here] will post even more photos, or [fill in yer pronoun here] will try, [fill in yer pronoun here] repeat, try to out-run a moose stampede!

    Again, welcome to the forum!

    Hello all,

    I'm completely new to model railroading (well, 50 years ago I did some track laying with my dad), but I've been bitten by the bug and am diving in head first without my swimmies on.

    I'm a retired 20-year veteran of law enforcement in northern NJ (hence the handle) and just starting out trying to find my way around. When I did help my dad, it was HO scale, but my space limitations don't allow for such sprawl. That's why I chose to go N scale, and was happily surprised to see the wide availability of supplies. IIRC, N-scale was relatively new back when my dad was doing this so it has come a long way.

    I've seen some incredible work here and elsewhere and am excited to get started. Looking forward to soaking up all the rich knowledge I find here.

    Cheers,
    Rich

    Welcome aboard Rich!
    Thanks for your previous service.

    We're here to answer any of your questions you might and probably will have.
    One word of caution, be careful how you phrase your questions, try not to start out by asking "Which is the BEST......" Those are opinion oriented questions and it'll open and can of worms amongst our members and you'll be inundated with a plethora of answers.

    Welcome, @NorthernJerseyRR! You will find many answers to your questions here: some useful, some humorous (in writer's opinion), and some totally irrelevant. We're here to be helpful, encouraging and to have fun.

    I highly recommend getting some track planning software to explore what is possible in your space. I use AnyRail, but other people will have more recommendations.

    Enjoy! Rule #1: It is your railroad, so do what pleases you. Someone else can mention how photos can prevent moose stampedes.

    Hello NorthernJerseyRR

    As Gorden mentioned, there is some wild life to be found on this forum. There is also Moose He, along with many others of us on here, likes photos. You'll have to make X number of posts before you can upload photos. But once you can......... we'll be waiting

    I'm delighted to hear that you will be focusing on steam era. Err, you did say that didn't you ?

    My two yen's worth is, don't listen to what I say as I'm rumoured to be a bit of a Cadbury's !!!

    Go well
    Thanks, Tom

    Hello Mike
    Retired Navy here, welcome to the forum. I was the same way when I was in the service on and off. Kato unit track is some good stuff. I myself am running Tomix. Yes, some companies like ESU have the better sound decoders than the well heard of ones like digitrax. We all are her still learning, because everyone has different ideas and knowledge in the hobby.

    Heh. Thanks Tom. Sure! Steam era is exactly what I said. Er, was thinking. Looking forward to being more active. I did just order a basic train set and some track to begin my layout and I'll build up from there. Thanks again.

    Cheers,
    Rich
