    Default Total Noob.

    Hey folks,
    I'm Ted. I'm getting a kind of late start into all this (56).
    I've had almost zero experience in trains other than to have ridden on some.
    We have several very unique trains here in New Hampshire to include the Mt Washington Cog Railway.
    This area has a rich history in railroading.
    I've done enough web browsing to realize I am slightly overwhelmed by the amount of information out there.
    Just looking at stuff that is for sale has generated a 1/2 page of questions....lol
    I think I'd like to begin a layout that speaks to my area's history.
    Maybe a passenger line like what existed here pre WWII, and a freight line that is appropriate to my region.
    It would be neat to include a Cog railway too if I could find a locomotive like what they use on Mt Washington.
    Just some of the ideas that appeal to me moving forward.
    I chose N for the obvious benefit of saving space.
    Please be patient with me as I will probably ask a lot of questions.
    I'm looking forward to browsing though the galleries and seeing all your amazing layouts!

    Hello Marc, and welcome. I'm super 'old skool' so won't be of much help to you but there are thankfully many on here who have embraced the technology that leaves me baffled. Keep us posted

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

    Start a thread listing all yer questions, and the fine folks here on n-Scale.net (nSn) will provide all sorts of helpful replies [and the occasional sill one. Moose no know who would provide silly replies, but Moose is just a moose, so no know everything...]...

    Ohhh, pre-WWII, very good. Moose strives for same era. Two hooves up!

    Cog railway would be an interesting & most enjoyable feature to see built. Go for it!

    Ted thanks Moose for warm welcome, and apologizes for running over moose relative some ten years ago.
    I will start thread soon. Would general railway discussion be the correct forum? Ted wants to avoid noob mistakes.....lol
    You're funny dude. I like that.

    Thanks Tom, Yeah NH is pretty cool, we have quite a few operating steam trains still going. (Tourist rides)
    I just like everything about steam.
    Back in the day, there were lines that ran from NY and Boston up here to bring wealthy people to their vacation homes. very elegant coaches.
    Thats one idea I'd like to explore. I may wind up creating the cog from a doner frame, who knows I've only just started this journey.....

    Where are there still operating steam engines? Nearest I’ve found was Essex Steam Train.

    I had no idea Conway Scenic even had an operating steam loco, never turned up on any searches for operating steam locomotives.

    I thought I read somewhere Mt. Washington retired the steamer, apparently I read wrong.


    What disappoints me about both of those is they have no information on their sites about the equipment they use, but I suppose it's not their target market either.

    No not really. You tube is a good resource though....

    this should be a thread on its own. Maybe one of the admins could move it??
    anyway, not steam but interesting - especially the station in Utica::

    Hello and Welcome BTK,

    If you don't mind being asked, can you post what you've been modelling eg. what era, what road name, steam, diesel, mixed ? Just answer CP steam and I'll be happy

    I haven't yet encountered tec problems here except those of my own ignorance A forum is dependent on each of our input. Personally, I find nSn has a special energy. I hope you find this too.

    All the best,
    Thanks, Tom

    Model mid to late 50's Canadian National, (sorry Tom) smattering of Algoma Central. Steam and diesel mix. Passenger and freight, not a serious rivet counter, just having fun.

    Default Just to say hi.

    Joe from upstate NY, So happy to be on here with the wealth of knowledge that in here.
    I am starting my first N door layout, after dabbling in HO, and have so far had a lot of question answered
    even before I joined.
    So I figured, take the dive and discuss.
    Thanks, JOe
