    @bhoneydew Welcome. We will of course be needing some more details about your intended N direction. You are going to be modeling CP steam era aren't you ?

    I see you've encountered the local wildlife (both of them !!) They breathe a lot of hot air but don't bite (much)

    Don't ever listen to what I say or you'll end up a fruitcake too
    Thanks, Tom

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be

    Hello, @bhoneydew!

    I see you've been greeted heartily and warmly. I have nothing else to add. Usually I do. Just beware of Moose and Wombat -- they're a lot like the Apple Dumpling Gang here.

    Oh, and diesels are highly regarded here. ...

    Thanks for the welcome emails. I was going to go with a west coast Canada theme. Not sure which way I'll go but the VIA Rapido F40 and LRC cars are calling me.

    There are no dumb questions here, so ask away.

    As to answers you get, well, that depends on our consumption of eggnog!

    Hello, everyone!

    I'm a new hobbyist, having just placed some web orders for a Kato P42 Intercity Express Superliner set and the basic M1 unitrack kit. I have not previously been a model railroader, as I haven't had the money nor space to put a set together. I have always been interested in trains in general, but just never seemed to put two and two together until YouTube suggested a while back "Hey! You watch all these train videos, ever thought about model railroading?"

    After being fascinated by all the detail of it, and reflecting on my relative lack of hobbies, I decided that I'll give this model railroading thing a try. So here I am, decided on N scale for the detail and compactness of the layouts and still looking at how far down the rabbit hole I should get pulled down.

    Hello Welcome to the forum. Great choice of scale by the way Don't wait to get pulled down the rabbit hole, head down it using your own steam Which conveniently brings us round to the topic of motivation, you've started out with a good brand name but, I'm not sure that a P42 (whatever that is !!) has a smoke stack on it ? As you're new here, I'll not rant on the merits of steam over diesel BUT..............

    Have a great time and don't be afraid of the local wildlife, not to mention those with more than two legs !!!
    Thanks, Tom

    Welcome! The Kato P42 Intercity Express Superliner set and the M1 unitrack kit is an excellent combo to get started. Beware though, it's a slippery slope these model railroad things.

    Hello, @Celendis, and welcome to the best N scale forum!

    There are no dumb questions here, so ask away. There are many experienced N scalers here, and we have lots of advice to share. However, just be aware that most of us are no longer trusted with sharp objects or glues of any kind, and we occasionally confuse references to "Kato" with Inspector Jacque Clouseau's "Pink Panther" valet.

    Still, we mean well, and hope you enjoy your foray into a great hobby.

    You are off to a good start with a Kato set -- reliable and well-built.

    @mike74 @Celendis

    Moose welcome you both to the greatest wee n-scale forum on the interweb!

    There be rules here ... You'll find out soon enough what they are ... because Moose is going to tell you...

    Rules:

    1. It's your railroad, so matter what Allen the Alien, Paul Paul not the other Paul, the other Paul, Tony the Combat Wombat, and the rest, here on - nscale.net say, do what you want;
    2. Post photos and post often;
    3. Build a sensible layout if it is yer first layout - nothing large and extravagant, just something to get ya all learned-up on the trials and tribulations of building a railroad, or do what Moose did for first layout and make it fill a room but still not be finished after seven years;
    4. Post more photos;
    5. Run steam locomotives and feel proud of yerself, or run disease'els and feel yerself in a very different way;
    6. Where dem photos?
    7. Why not combine two hobbies in one? Combine wood working and model railroading by getting yerself an n-scale lathe and start turning some n-scale bowls, plates, bats, chop sticks, and maybe a few decorative posts for an n-scale train station!
    8. Moose is awaiting for those photos...
    9. Remember, when using a static grass applicator, never touch the mesh screen before discharging the applicator, and never ever ever lick it - before or after discharging...
    10. Really?! No photos? Arrrg! Moose hate having to stampede so early in the morning!

    Please carry on Moose!
