Hello all,

I'm Bryn and live in the UK, for my day job I work on the railway network with rolling stock engineering.

I've modelled British N gauge for many years and then moved onto 2mm Finescale track standards not long after.

Recently I have begun to collect Milw N Scale models from around the time the railroad was coming to an end. I've started a small layout based on St Paul engine house just to get started and will post some updates soon.

Welcome aboard! There are a few of us here with interests in British railways/models and lots of us who do some level of finescale modelling. You should fit in well.

Hello, my name is Eric and I have been into model railroading for the past 3 years or so and see it as one of my lifelong hobbies now.

I came here from reddit and I mainly model in N scale but don't currently have a layout as my wife and I moved to a very small apartment. But I have used this as an opportunity to focus on figuring out dcc and developing my scenery style. I am also a huge fan of scratch-building and have started my journey on my first passenger station which I will probably start a build thread for soon.

All in all I am glad to be here and hope to learn from some great people!

Welcome @mclarenf119. The coffe is warming in the corner on the potbelly stove, the bacon is almost done, and @Ed Kapuscinski has almost finished painting the place Conrail blue. I saw your station build thread - looks like a good start. Don’t forget to post in weekend update, share some proto photos on thursdays, and teach us what you know about your chosen prototype.

 Hello fellow model railroaders,

 New to the board but a long time N-scale layout builder. Caught the bug when my Dad gave ma a "Postage Stamp" set in the sixties.

 I've built several HCD layouts over the years but I'm finally ready to create something special. I have a 12X18 space to begin making a Norfolk Southern double deck layout. I will try to document every stage of
 construction here as I progress.

 Thanks.

 Mark.

Hello,

I'm largely a closet N scale modeler to now, as in, my collection, begun when I was ten or so, has spent most of its time in the closet. It's been waiting for the day when time and money permit more attention. I take it out from time to time to fondle the pieces, set up a loop or two and give the locos some exercise. Finally this winter I decided to get it all out and see where it takes me.

Thanks for the forum.

Hello and thank you for having me. Name is Matthew and I'm an HO modeler. I do Free-mo modular railroading. My module NAPCO has been to two National Train Shows the set up in Springfield, Mass for a few years now and even took it across the border to Brampton (Toronto) Canada for a show last autumn. I model Soviet/Russian and Afghan railroading and also have an interest in Penn Central era NEC and current Maryland & Delaware Railroad operations.

Welcome aboard @Rustman! I've seen your work on the Capitol FreeMO layout - pretty nice stuff. While we tend to be a bit N scale centric, great modeling is great modeling, and several of our best have gone HO in the last couple of years.

So get a layout Engineering thread going on your modules, post up in Weekend Update, throw some prototype photos at us, and join the fun on the various construction sub-fora.

Hi, Matthew,

Welcome to TRW from one of the HO modelers here.  Also, you need to connect with @RockGp40, who is an engineer on the Maryland & Delaware RR.

Welcome aboard Matthew!
You'll find this to be a welcoming forum with many knowledgeable folks.
Some of us get bogged down in the minutiae at times, but don't hesitate to wade through it.

My best advice is to post photos, and post often.
We enjoy modeling of all shapes, sizes, and nationalities here. Especially when accompanied by photos! So your Soviet and Afghan modeling is most certainly welcome here.
