Howdy,, I was at one time very active on the forum and life changes dictated I give up model railroading for a while, been busy in the music business and have not had time for anything else for the past few years. Now I have found some extra time I can devote once again to the hobby so decided to give it a go again.
Looking forward to talking with everyone again and getting back to it, a lot has changed in just a couple of years and I need to do a bunch of catch up......another adventure!!

Jake, thanks for taking time to introduce yourself. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your layout.

Welcome back, Jerry. You are right, things sure are changing in the hobby and most for the better.

Hello everyone,
My name is John Edge and I live in the north west of England, halfway between Liverpool and Manchester. Both of which cities are quite famous for football (soccer!) and music - sadly I have no talent in either! No interest in footy but I do like music of all kinds, quite "catholic" tastes really in that I like everything from "pop" through Rock, Classical and yes, Country! (got a couple of albums by Chris Ledoux!).
I'm 50 y.o. married with three cats, own my own (small) business, we both like travelling around the world.
I've been a model railroader since I was a child, it's a lifelong hobby for me. I started out with British 00 stuff because I knew no better but then I lived in France for a while and got started in H0.
By the time I was about 25 (1990) I got into US outline H0, buying a bit of everything to start with before settling on Southern Pacific/Rio Grande. I happily collected these items while helping to build a club layout (at this time, I lived in Derby in the midlands). After a while however I grew more interested in the C&NW so sold off the Espee/DRGW stock as well as my old French stock. I was really into Alco's so that kept me busy for a while.
I managed just one trip to the States in 1995, imagine my horror at discovering that UP had just gobbled up "my" railroad!
Over the years my interests wandered again and I followed KCS, C&O (where my username comes from) and NY,NH&H but always came back to the North Western.
Thanks to my wife, we moved "up north" as we say and eventually I became involved with German H0 trains, then I started going to see them and the obsession grew until just recently when the flame simply burned out.
So now, I'm back and in love with the North Western again, although recently I have also developed a 'crush' on the Texas & Pacific.
Big fan of DCC with quite a number of sound fitted locos, even published an article in "Continental Modeller", a British magazine devoted to modelling railways around the world!
Cheers,
John.


Cheers,
John.

Welcome aboard, John. Sounds like you've dabbled in a variety of railroads (railways ). Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself.

Howdy, all. I am a lifelong armchair modeler with a newly empty nest. This means, among other things, I finally have some time and money on my hands! So, my wife gets her craft room, and I get to finally build a train.

So I'm definitely in the newbie category, though maybe worse than a true newbie, because I know enough to be dangerous. :-)

Currently thinking about On30, and have come upon this forum regularly in my web travels. Y'all seem like a friendly lot, so I figured I'd join in.

Welcome to the Forum, Geoff. We do have a very active group of On30 modelers here, and as you observed, it is a friendly place.

Hi Folks,
I'm currently living in British Columbia, Canada, in the lower mainland (Surrey). I started in model railroading as a teenager with a Lionel set I got from my cousin then I branched into HO. I let the hobby go while I was in the military as moving was too hard. I did keep building and painting models however. I started another HO layout towards the end of my career but it didn't survive my final move. I helped my dad build a layout as well and recently decided to start back in with On30. I really like building structures and making scenery. I have never actually operated a train, although I have had one go around the track a few times. I at the very beginning of the hobby again. I am trying to figure out a layout that can be modular (I know I will move sometime in the future) but I know that I will never be able to fill a room so I am looking at a 13' x 2' or 30" wide layout. My challenge is trying to figure out how much room I need. It seems that when I get a suitable run of track, I have no room for buildings. Knowing that I will likely never have an "operating session" maybe I have to get used to the idea of just having a very large diorama with a siding or two.....
Anyway, hopefully I will find inspiration and help within this forum.
Dave

Thanks for introducing yourself, Dave. I'm sure you'll get some inspiration from the members here. When you get started on your layout, post some pictures of your progress.
