    I'm back!

    Things kind of got away from me and I really didn't have the time to be online like I was. I've been stockpiling stuff and eventually get something going as far as a layout is concerned.

    And of course there will always be question!

    Hello all. I am new to N Scale having just picked up an Atlas S2 with sound and shopping for Micro trains rolling stock. I am planning on modeling the Central Vermont RR during the transition era. My layout is currently in the design stage still studying things like turning radii and design features. I will be using an NCE power cab.
    Thanx.

    Hello CVA-62 and welcome.

    Sounds like you already have all the diesels you need, now for some steam ???

    What size space do you have available for your layout ? Keep us up to date
    Thanks, Tom

    Good morning, new here. I have been out of the hobby for maybe fifteen years but am looking to get back into things eventually. Just collecting ideas and solidifying plans for now, unfortunately the majority of my collection is HO and the N stuff I did have is ancient and middling quality, not go mention sitting somewhere in my parent's basement thousands of miles away. I think N is the way I want to go moving forward due to the more scenic scale size compared to HO and up. I hope no one minds but probably no pictures or anything for quite a while until I get everything situated and decide on the version 1 layout direction.

    Thanks everyone for the welcome.
    I plan on modeling Conrail 1996-1997 just before the end.I haven't really decided on a plan yet just mainly "playing" with my new N scale equipment.

    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.

    Looking at doing a 42" x 96" layout which will be wired and built with expansion in mind to an L shaped layout eventually. Looking to go with Peco Code 55 track and Peco UniFrog turnouts. I am looking to keep turn radii at 18" on the mainline. Most rolling stock will be smaller cars to fit with the transition era I am modeling.

    As for steam, yeah, on the radar but not until the layout is a least functional. I have my eye on the Broadway Limited M1b with all the bells and whistles, no pun intended. This is NOT a correct loco for the CV railroad of the late 40's and early 50's but I am not that much of a stickler to having everything exact. An undecorated one with CV decals and she will look real nice. My buck, my luck, right? LOL. Here is a caboose I just finished working on a while ago. My first attempt caboose surgery. I gave up, for the time being trying to find a Bluford CV caboose, so decided to make one myself. Cheers, mates.

    Default New to nscale.net

    Hi all, I'm mid 70's and returning to n scale and model RR since leaving in late 60's early 70's. I was going to college then living in Laramie, Wyo and had and still have a brass HO Climax and a N scale switcher and a few cars and some track and built a TAT IV throttle but never had much of a layout. Not much in the way of funds to have one. Also built a few scratch built N scale structures.

    From then to now main interests other than work/businesses have been street rods and sailboats. Still involved in both. My wife, Dottie, and I are currently in the Bahamas on our older sailboat waiting on a weather window to get back to Florida and the boatyard and then home to Utah. Going to sell this boat but still have a trailer sailboat that we will use on lakes. I have some projects that need to be finished this summer then will open up an area of my shop where I'll start a N scale layout this fall. Recently bought a GE 44 Ton and a SD40-2 used online that are at the boat yard waiting on us. When I get home I want to buy a FastTrack fixture and try making some turnouts over the summer as time permits before actually starting on the layout.

    Want to loosely model UP in the late 40's to early 70's. We live in SE Utah's canyon country and the nearest RR to us is the UP branch line to a Potash plant by Moab, UT and the UP line from Denver to Salt Lake City that runs through CO and UT about 100 miles north of us. 240 miles south are the BNSF tracks that run across mid-AZ. My closest connection to railroading is still the years I spent going to school and working in southern WY along the UP's tracks there.

    I've been lurking on this board for a while and decided it was time to register. I've already learned a lot here and thanks to all of those that contribute,

    Welcome, Sumner! Great place here to learn all kinds of stuff, regardless of one's rail interests.

    Kathy and I did the same thing, living on an older sailboat (a Columbia 31) from the Chesapeake Bay to Staniel Cay in the Exumas in 1996-97. We are quite familiar with "waiting for a weather window" while in the Bahamas! We crossed from Chub Cay to Cat Cay in fair weather, but spent 11 days at Cat and Bimini waiting for a fair crossing of the Gulf Stream. Friends of ours set off across the Gulf Stream without waiting - she left him after that. After an enjoyable interlude on Bimini with more new friends, we had a delightful crossing. Patience!
    Cheers!

    Dottie and I got a laugh out of that. We have been here in Morgans Bluff on the north end of Andros Island 2 weeks tomorrow, longest I've ever waited. Looks maybe good to go Thrusday or so. We are crossing to Marathon in the Keys so about a 2 1/2-3 day jump from here if we anchor on the banks one night.

    We got down to Little Farmers in the Exumas and stopped at Pig Beach by Staniel Cay on the way back north. You wouldn't believe how many boats are here now. Tons in the 100-200 foot range and some over 300 feet. Love the Exumas though,

    Probably a possibility.

    When I was last in the hobby in the late 60's that was about all I wanted, but my memories are now the diesels I saw while I was by UP's tracks and the GTELs and 6900 series diesels fascinated me. I had a milk route from Laramie up to Medicine Bow, WY and the highway pretty much paralleled the tracks so saw a lot of trains. I also rented one of the oldest building in Laramie on 1st street where the main line was about 30 feet from the front door. I lived in a old store front on the first floor and rented out sleeping rooms on the second floor. Saw lots of engines and the building shook with about all of them.

    One of my best friends also became first a civil engineer for UP and then a train engineer and retired a few years ago but years ago took me through the roundhouse in Cheyenne. That was cool,

    Welcome, Sumner! There are no dumb questions, although the answers can be a bit dicey at times.

    I see @Moose2013 has bid you welcome. What he neglected to mention is that he likes pictures -- lots of 'em -- with the threat of a Moose Stampede when his visual demands are not met.

    And, yes, Moose does range far, even to Utah, but only on per diem. ...
