    Just think though, @Rail_Light, you could go from "New Member" to "Senior Member" status in one weekend if you worked things right -- one post per locomotive.

    Default New to the Forum

    Hi everyone,

    New user to the forum, though been lurking as a guest for a while now. Feels like a very friendly community of NScalers, so decided to finally sign up and see how it goes.

    Little about myself: I've been playing with trains since I was about 3 or 4 with my first Brio train set, then dad had bought used HO train set at a garage sale that I played with and then my first ncale set and layout around 11. So been collecting Nscale trains for about 25 years now.

    Live near Vancouver, BC.

    Interested in modern Canadian Pacific and mountain railroading at this point though have equipment from other eras.

    Currently have an unsceniced 6x7 L-shaped layout in a spare room with a DCC system. No scenery because I decided to plan something different, so probably ripping it apart. I've been planning a layout to go around the walls of the room instead loosely based on the fraser river canyon in BC. Currently it's in CAD or in my mind, deciding what to do. More details to hopefully come in the future in its own thread.

    Anyways just saying hi, and please don't stampede me.

    Kevin

    Hello Kevin,

    Welcome to the forum. I like the mountain part of your layout plans I can't say I'm jumping with enthusiasm over the part about 'modern' !!! Respect and all that, but don't come crying to me if it leads you to a trampling

    Have a good time and ask all you need.
    Thanks, Tom

    Hello Kevin! I'll skip my usual preamble, since you've been a lurker here and have probably seen it already, but nice to have you aboard.

    Default Greeting from Coastal California

    I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as a new lurker, and now poster, to the site.

    My history in model railroading...
    My grandfather and father both enjoyed model railroading (Granddad had post-war Lionel) and since there were no sons/grandsons in my generation the joy of model railroading became mine! I spent hours poking around train shops with my Dad, 'worked' with him on his N-scale layout in the garage, and transitioned to dollhouse miniatures as a teen. Dad and I still enjoyed working together with his trains, continued to go to shows, and moved to 'G' Scale in the 1990s when he retired and stored the N-scale layout. I am still heavily involved with miniatures and on the committee for the largest Miniature show West of the Mississippi (GoodSam Showcase of Miniatures).

    The future...
    Both my parents are gone now and taking care of the trains is my responsibility (and joy)! I'm very excited to get a chance to work with the trains and equipment again and look forward to setting up a series of small layouts in an extra curio cabinet.

    I have far more rolling stock, track, and accessories than I will ever be able to use. My focus will be on using what I have to the best advantage, although I'm partial to western road names. One of my Dad's favorite pieces was a pair of S.P. Daylight 4449 engines (both steam and diesel) and set of cars that I purchased for him over several birthdays and holidays. Boy did I have to scrimp and save my pennies, but it was all worth it--and now I get to play with it, too!

    My planned layouts will be too small to run the long engine and cars, but the 4449 can come out of its display cabinet each year to run with honor under the Christmas tree!

    I look forward to reading through the posts and resources on the site, and learning from all of you, so I can do my Dad's collection proud!

    Best Wishes,
    Trish W.

    Welcome, @trishweber22! There are no dumb questions here, but the answers occasionally might be kinda suspect; where on the globe Happy Hour is occurring typically has a great bearing on the quality of advice you're getting. But we mean well. ...

    Okay, so we have a resident Moose. He likes pictures and lots of them. I see he's already offered a hearty hi-ho. I'm sure he'll elaborate further about pictures. You ever been in a stampede?

    So welcome to the best model railroad forum in the web!

    Welcome, Trish! Since you've been observing here for a while you already know we enjoy the exchange of information and ideas. We also like to just have fun and some friendly joshing. When you have a few posts you should be able to post photos, thus avoiding a moose stampede.
    Cheers!

    That's very similar to my planned layout: It starts from left-to-right, from the Mojave Desert to rolling hills. Running mostly mid-1990s, early-2000s era Southern Pacific.
