    Moose bid you hearty welcome!

    Moose would inform you if the railroad rules 'round here, buuut, ummm, Moose just hot-glued hooves together ... Typing with hooves is hard enough...

    Hey Joe, This means we can do what we like without the risk of getting trampled Oh, and welcome to nSn.

    I wonder how long that glue will take to come unstuck ?

    Do you really want to know, Mr Funny Man?

    'Cause, Moose will tell you -- ouch! Dag'nub'it! Moose hoove really burns...

    Okay, Moose'll deal with you later. Gotta go put on some pain-relieving ointments. Ohhh, Moose hopes they're mint-flavoured!

    Thank you and no worries ... After some pain-killing ointment which was decidedly NOT mint flavoured by the way, a lot of ice, brrrrrr, very cold, and a shot of Talisker's finest, and, ummm, what was Moose sayin'?

    Hi everyone, just got back into N scale. Really glad to be back. I am building a PRR layout and also scratch building steam locos. You may remember me from the old Atlas board.

    Hello Rick and welcome.

    Do we get to know what road, and more interestingly to me, what era you're planning on modeling I'm glad you've seen the light and come to 'N' Twice as much space to play with ! Sadly not half as many locos to choose from though.
    Thanks, Tom

    I guess I missed this thread. I've been on here about 3 weeks now. Already been helped on a DCC wiring question that I had.

    I retired last year. I'm 64 and decided to get back into the hobby after a 30 year layoff. I live in Indiana. My previous layout was a decent size in an unfinished attic. Way too hot in the summer and cold in the winter. I never did get around to doing any scenery.

    My 1st train set was an Nscale Bachmann Penn-Central train set with a GP40 loco. This was back in 1973 or 74. I now have an 8-1/2 x 9 room out in my garage that was there when we bought the house.

    I insulated it and put up some cheap paneling and installed a 4ft baseboard heater. I keep it about 60-65 degrees and I'm comfortable. I have started an U shaped dogbone layout. I have a 3 track staging yard underneath that comes up via a helix to the dogbone.

    I'm still working on laying track to get my dogbone completed so I can run some trains.

    I model the New York Central. I had planned on the time frame of the mid 60's but have decided to forgo history and the merger with the Pennsy and model the NYC via the mid 70's early 80's.

    This way I can run some newer equipment. I have mostly some old Atlas/Kato RS-3, RS-11 and a couple of GP-7 locos. I have changed about 5 of them over to DCC using the TCS CN-GP decoders.

    I purchased an NCE Powercab as my starter set to power them. I can't believe the changes in the hobby. DCC is so cool compared to DC. None of my loco's have sound but I've been looking into an Inter-moutain SD-40-2 with sound.

    Once I get my dogbone up and running then I need to change over my equipment to MTL couplers as most of what I have is still Rapido style couplers. So far this hobby has been keeping me out of trouble and I like the different aspects of the hobby.

    Already been browsing around reading different threads. This summer I plan on getting the USB card so I can run JMRI and learn how to program the different CV's for my decoders.

    Well that is all I have for now. I'm looking forward to posting more in the future.

    @NYC54

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

    Moose would like to take a moment to talk to you about a very troubling issue Moose has observed with your, ummm, "fleet."

    Yeeeah, that's right, they're all disease'els! What in tarnation do you need with sooo many of those stinky disease'els?!

    Okay, let Moose help you...

    Take all but your honorary steam locomotives, yeah, those RS's you have there, now put those aside and pick up all the rest. Toss'em. Yep, toss'em. Now, march yer' self to the nearest local model railroad store. Oh, wait, this 2019, there's not likely to be a local store within a 100 miles of you. Okay, march yer' self back to the computer, and order up yer' self, ummm, let's see, yeah, an even half dozen steam locomotives. Now, when those arrive, take photos of them. Lot's and lots of photos. Post'em on this here website...

    Boom, you're now Moose's best bud. Congratulations!
