    Welcome to the nuthouse.
    Ask lots of questions, we love ignoring them and talking about ourselves. That or give you so many answers and opinions you'll understand less. Eventually you'll find some useful information, but not often.

    Northern Michigan is a great place to model, be wary there's not as much in specific kits but lots of great models have been built. If metals and mining get to scary, go for the original money maker - raw timber and finished wood.
    Use what you know about the world to model…
    Learn from modeling what you don't know about the real world.

    Default New to Nscale.net

    Hi guys,I'm new to n gauge railroad and found this site browsing the net looking for ideas for my layout. I've played around with HO gauge but I find N gauge more interesting. At the moment I've only one loco (a Atlas hammersley iron) but having no knowledge on trains I can't say what type.I'll post photos once I start to build my layout so you guys can help direct me in the right direction.Thanks, Brian

    G'day Brian, from across the ditch. Welcome to the site - glad that you found us. This is IMHO the best N-scale site anywhere, so please make yourself at home, and ask any questions that you might feel are necessary. Someone, somewhere, will usually be able to help. As we all like to help here, can you give us any idea about what geographical area you want to model (Oz possibly?) and what time period interests you?

    FWIW, if you are considering modelling Oz, there is a reasonably-large group of N-scalers resident in Oz who model the local Oz scene. Our own Ozzie Bill is one of them.

    BTW: The Atlas 'Hammersley Iron' locomotive you have is technically an ALCO C-628.(ALCO BTW is an acronym American Locomotive Co, at one time a very large US locomotive builder that went out of business in the late 1960's. )

    As I said, glad you found us. We look forward to hearing from you some more. Happy modelling.

    Thanks for welcome. My interest in n gauge is no limited to a region, I tend to like colours on trains like greens and yellows on trains like the ALCO or SANTA FE range, so if it gets my attention then l'll get it. As stated in a another post I look forward joining in the topics so I can build up my knowledge on this gauge.

    Brian

    I've been into model railroading for about the last 40+ years in various scales. I switched to N scale about a dozen years ago. I model the PRR in the 1960s, basically so I can run early diesels with 2nd gens. I have a 4' x 12' layout, which started out as a 3' x 4', that just been reactivated after being idle for a year.

    Hello Every one

    I have had a few trains mainly HO and N gauge, I have never had the space to set them up so about 2 years ago I gave them all to the local model RR club.
    Now I have a room to set up a layout in so I am getting ready to start over in N gauge.

    I am planning on a lat 40's to early 50's type layout to be able to run
    some late big steamers and early streamlined diesels.

    Anyway I am still planning the layout it will probably be modular but not to any standard. I just want to be able to move it if I have to move.

    I am also planning on DCC control from the start so everything will be wired for it as it is being built

    Greentowtruck. Welcome to the best N-scale site anywhere; glad you found us.

    You said 'I just want to be able to move it [any layout you build] if I have to move'.

    Have you considered the idea of a self-contained, movable, cabinet for your layout, with the 'cabinet front' being the baseboard? The 'baseboard' can fold-away into the cabinet (gaining protection from damage at the same time) and can also be unbolted from it and taken separately if you have to move. The cabinet, being now lighter can be easily moved as can the baseboard. When you reach your new home, re-attach both parts together and 'voila', back in business. If the idea appeals, go to the 'Gallery' section of this site, look in 'Komata's Albums' and open 'The Kereru Branch - a fold-away layout in a cabinet', to see what I did to solve the same problem.

    Hope this helps and again, welcome.

    Default Saying Hello

    Hi everyone! My name is Kevin and have been on and off into model railroading for half or so of my 34 years. Mostly HO but a few years back was bitten by the N scale money reduction program. I currently do not have a setup as the house I am in now does not allow me to do so, but am starting after a couple year hiatus.... stockpiling some goodies in hopes of buying a new house in the not so far off future with room to run. I have been lurking here for a few days and am very impressed with the site and hope to learn a ton of info and if I am able will contribute anything I can that would help a fellow N scaler out.
