Hi all,

I just got accepted, so time for a little introduction  ;)

My real name is Marco and I live in Nieuwegein, which is in the Netherlands (yup the other side of the ocean...).

Years ago I had a H0 layout, focused on Swiss railways.
Nowadays I'm into N scale, and have just recently got interested in American engined and railways. Which is my third interest, after Japanese (Shinkansen) and again Swiss and OBB material.

At the moment I have fourUS engines, the latest bought being a Kato C30-7, that brought me to this site.
As I was looking for information about decoders for this engine, Google made me visit this forum, and a few moments later I registered.

Regards,

Marco

Welcome, Marco!  Your life, as you have known it, will never be the same.  Seriously, this is a good group of modelers that can offer a lot of tips and help.  Take your time and look around, as there is a plethora of information here.  Ask questions and feel free to post photos of your modeling.

hI i'M rOBERT rAY. haha, my caps lock was on. I model Z Scale, and am just getting back into the hobby after several years. My hobby weapons of choice are a CO2 laser and PC. I just retired and moved from the busy metropolis to Idaho.  I sleep till I feel well slept, goof around with trains when I want, and have been inducted into the local hillbilly community after performing a Hillbilly wedding in the holler up Manns Creek over Labor Day weekend. Damn can drink their Fireball!

Robert,

Welcome back!  Didn't you have a older profile here at the Railwire? Maybe a mod can find it and re-activate it.

Hi Chris, I had 4 different usernames, each with a different password saved in my browser, all variants of pray59, but none of them worked and all said username was not registered, so I deleted all those and signed up as rray.

The pray59 name was actually a carryover from my ex wife's AOL account, Pam RAY hence she was PRAY. She was pray61, and I was pray59 on AOL. Funny thing, I left her, then later remarried and the next wife was a bible thumper, so she liked that I was pray59, so she became pray55 cause she was born in 1955. I never told her it was my previous wife that the name came from, and we are going through divorce, and she still uses pray55. Haha! I'm going to stay rray going forward instead of pray. New life, no wife, new state, no hate!

Hi Brian, I still remember you, in fact I remember everyone from the day. Thanks again for the help on that. It was my first time making a model railroad kit. If i do it again, I think I would source etched brass frets for the ends and ladder. Those roof loops broke too easy.

If you see it, get it, for tomorrow it may be gone!

Sorry, I meant Bryan, not Brian. I was going off memory, but my spelling has always been lacking..
