1) Where do you live?

Arcadia Ohio, where the NKP started construction in May 1881.

2) How long have you been a model railroader, and how did you get started in the hobby?

Since a lionel 0/27 set for Christmas in 1983 when I was six.

3) Do you model a prototype railroad or freelance your layout?

Mostly the Nickel Plate in the early 1960's but I tend to drift a little.

4) Do you model a certain era and/or geographic region?

If I had a layout it would be a bridge line based on the Lake Erie and Western across Ohio, but as a wholy owned NKP subsidiary.

5) How large is your layout and what scale do you model?

I'm a member of a club with a 25' X 25' sectional layout in HO

6) What's your favorite part of the hobby? And what do you enjoy least?

Detailing! But I don't care for electrical.

7) How do you control your trains (DC, DCC, or something else)?

Slowly moving into DCC.

8) Tell us anything else about yourself you'd like us to know.

My family has a small farm, I also restore Farmall Tractors, hence the user name.

9) Post your picture - if you dare.

Naaa.

Aaron, thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself to the crew. Welcome to the Forum! I worked in the grounds dept. at a large hospital complex when I was in college, and spend a lot of time mowing grass with an International Cub Lo-Boy. Red, of course.

Thanks for introducing yourself, Aaron. You're in good company - most of us started our model railroading with a Lionel set.

Hi All

Having recently joined RR-Line, I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Brian Wilson and I live in Victoria, BC, Canada. I seem to be a bit of a rubber gauger modelling in everything from Gn15 to N with most of my efforts being in On30 and On18. I have 2 mini layouts: an On30 measuring 24" x 48" and an On18 which measures 18" x 33". One project is to join the two layouts by means of a dual gauge interchange.

All of my equipment is "shop-built" or severely kitbashed. Currently I'm butchering a die-cast Model A pickup into a rail truck. It's an adventure! I have a kind of "close enough" approach to modelling however I really enjoy the detailed modelling of members of this Forum.

I hope I can contribute to the Forum in some small way and am looking forward to seeing the progress of members' projects.


Cheers

Brian

Good morning everyone.

I am happy to join this great forum. A few months ago I discovered it and was fascinated with what they do and with the help they give.

I introduce myself. My name is Jorge Espejo, I'm 27 years old, and I live in a small city in Peru.

I'm a rookie in this great hobby.

As many started collecting scale models. I have bikes and trucks, especially I like the classic models. Then I started to assemble KIT'S, until I discovered the marvelous world of trains to scale.

For now I have 3 models of the MTH brand in H0 scale. But I have a big problem since they are 3-way and I can not make them walk, it's a real pity.

Now I would like to do my own model, and with the help of all of you, I will do it. I will be asking you for advice on techniques, tools and materials to use.

Thank you so much

PD.- I do not like the writing, it happens that my native language is Spanish, and my English is not very good, and in some cases I'm helping with the google translator.

Hi everyone I'm Kevin and I live in Ottawa, Canada. I've only been involved in this for a few months and I started with an N-scale Kato uni-track starter set and I added a small yard and bought a few cars.
I'm going for a modern-era CN freight operation. I'm influenced by watching trains when I was younger in the Sherbrooke, Canada area where the CN and CP main east-west line passed through along with short line trains from New England.
What I like most is simply watching the train go around and the nostalgia. Love it! My set up is DC but trying to learn more about DCC for future.

Hello, everyone! I go by the truly unique name of Vet. I've been visiting this forum for some time and finally signed up. I live in southeastern Idaho and belong to the local HO scale club here in my town.
I started with model railroading at 10 when my father gave me an issue of Model Railroader magazine. That sent me off down the road of dreaming 'bout my forever layout but life intruded. now I'm retired with a 14' by 19' room to devote to model railroading.....I'm overwhelmed on where to start.
I've always been partial to UP and he Oregon Short Line since I grew up a grenade's toss away from the their tracks. I remember the big orange PFE reefers on the siding near my backyard. Never been much for watching trains go 'round-and'round. I prefer the operating rules and paperwork side of it (I guess that's diagnostic, isn't it).
I'm still in the planning stages of my forever layout. Keep changing my mind and spinning my wheels. I really enjoy N scale although I have some HO equipment for operating at my RR club downtown.
I love DCC except I'm not an electrical engineer and that seems to me mostly black magic and Dark Arts kinda stuff. Waiting for the day Dead Rail takes over, then Nirvana will have arrived.
I have the wonderful opportunity to operate on two local extensive model railroads and it is so enjoyable! Would love to replicate a tiny piece of that excitement in my own little basement train room. Phew, that's enough about me. Let's talk about something truly interesting...like model railroading!
