Hello folks! I haven't been here in a very long time, so I thought I'd re-introduce myself. I signed up back in April or thereabouts, posted some scratchbuilt jobs, and suddenly found myself forced to take a bit of a hiatus from the hobby. Now I'm back into it full-force, and here's hoping to post more of my modeling projects!

G'daye all, My name is Les Staff and I model the C&NW here in the Clarence Valley NSW Australia.
I have been modeling since I was a ten yr old. I met my little mate who is affectionately Known as the Runt about six mths after my wife Velda and I married. He is the husband of her best friend and mate from school days. We started the WEUSANDCORR {WE-US-and CO-RR} in 1976 after reading about the V&O AM etc.Its a long time to be railroadin together. Our colour scheme yellow and green and black roof. It was because of this that we became interested in the Can't and Never will. We live 700klms apart but that don't stop us from interacting.Modern day methods of communication make it easy Skype and email telling each other which trains are are arriving and leaving for each other. I'm the mountains and Runts the coast and docks and now we have built a new steel works for him as well.
My layout is HO 14ft6"x 16ft 6" double decked with up and down helixes. The layout is currently being expanded into an ajoining room and will have one helix instead of two when finnished.I run 10amp NCE radio through four DCC Specialties cut outs. The Runt has 5amp radio


C&NW Lives here
Regards Les

Welcome Les! I enjoyed reading your introduction and your railroad sound interesting. Perhaps you can start a thread and share some pics of your work.

Good day! My name is Ernie and I model in the HO gauge, with particular attention to the Southern Railway. I run my layout using Digitrax DCC equipment. I have been into model railroading for about ten years and am currently working on the NMRA Civil AP process, which is the I am using Fast tracks templates for the construction of crossovers and a ninty degree crossing.

Glad to have you with us, Ernie. You will find a number of other forum members handlaying, some with the jigs, some without. I suggest you browse the sticky threads in the Model RR Construction forum as you have time.

Welcome to the Forum, Ernie. I, too, will be working on the Civil Engineering Certificate this year. It is the last that I need for the MMR.

I live in Towson, MD, Seat of Baltimore County. I've been a model railroader since 1941 when I got my first train sets at age 3. I became an HO scale modeler in 1952, and moved on to O scale in 1955. I freelance model early 20th Century Mid-Atlanic Region narrow gauge railroading. My layout is 15 x 20 feet walk-in-and-around, O scale 30 inch gauge: On30. I like building and bashing rolling stock the most, scenery the least. I use 12 volt D.C. control; I plan to add DCC as a switch over option. My railroad's name is the Kenly's Creek R.R., Kenly is my middle name. My grandfather and myself had Major William L. Kenly of the Army of the Potomac as namesake. This may be why I am also a Civil War historian/buff. I am History Chairman for the Baltimore Chapter, N.R.H.S. and I just retired as Chapter President. I am also a founding member of Baltimore Streetcar Museum and I have modeled traction also since 1954. I am building a 11'6¨ x 3' x 6' On30 traction layout in my office where I'm typing this. I'm not sure about how to post on the Forums nor post a photo, but that last bit is to your advantage! - vanhorntwsn (Martin)

Welcome aboard, Martin. We have an active group of On30 modelers, so you'll fit right in. Posting pictures is a common problem for newcomers. Here are some threads on how to post pictures. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27749
