Hi! I’m Zack. I’ve been an n scaler all my life, since before I was born. I’m sure more than a couple of you have met me as a baby at various N Scale Collector shows.

Hi there! I'm Danylo, and I've been N scaling since I was about 13. I now "play" on the 1:1 trains while I "work" on the 1:160 trains. I moved across the country last year and unfortunately don't have access to a massive layout anymore, so my 50+ car trains don't have a home besides in the boxes i purchased them in.

I'll probably be posting a good portion of my collection here soon, diverting that value into funds to pay for some of my other hobbies (flying and photography) while keeping a solid core of my collection that will fit an eventual home layout.

Thanks for reading!

-Danylo

    Hi, my name is Michael. While cleaning the garage I came upon my ‘hobby shop’ a trove of un-built kits, and kitbash projects that have been stuffed away for over a decade. That inspired me to getting back into model building. Been lurking here for a bit. What I have done to scratch my railroad itch in the years off was to build the DRGW 12th sub-division “The San Juan Extention” in V scale. It is operable in Microsoft Train Simulator and Open Rails. Slim-Rail-Mike is my handle on some V-Scale forums.

Now I would like to be building some stuff with my hands.

Glad they let me on this train.  It's a long way from England.  I might have got mistaken for a hobo.  What do you mean this seat is reserved?  looks empty to me. Oh well then.  Bah, no respect for genius. Where's the bar?

Now were underway, I can get on with all the little projects that make up the great railroad empire in my head  :D

Looks like a nice place here.  Somewhere a man can obsess, er, enthuse over tiny trains in peace.
Time to finish setting up the lathe and see if I can make something useful.

Hi I'm rail_nut. I have been following The Railwire and passing comments for a number of years. Got started with Lionel 027 and Marx when I was 6 for Christmas, bought some American Flyer equipment to use on a friend's layout (11 or 12) which I still have. Sold the O and switched to HO (13) and then finally to N with a Postage Stamp set in late 60's. Was one of the original members of Montreal N-Trak and operated on a large 50' x 50' modular layout under the tracks into Montreal's Central Station. In the late 70's sold and then manufactured 1=1 railway car parts. Later consulted with BBD on Amtrak Horizon car problem resolutions before transitioning to full time for over 22 years. Returned to consulting after retirement.  Greatest pleasure has been assisting model manufacturers and ensuring that large quantities of Pullman and BUDD drawings ended up at the Illinois Railway Museum.

Looks like it's been a while since anybody welcomed our latest members.

So, @traintraxuk , @Spruslayer , @Zack L-J , @dhtrains , @Slim Rail Mike  , @TinyTurner  , and @rail_nut  , welcome to the Railwire.  While some mentioned that you've been lurking, it's nice to see you come out of the shadows.

Spruslayer, do you by chance frequent the Model Car Magazine forum?
TinyTurner, that is a clever name for someone making small turned parts. What lathe(s) do you own?
rail_nut, you sure have some serious railroad and model railroad experience under your belt.  I can't wait to hear more details (and of course your educated opinions).

I'm also into model cars, trucks, bikes, etc. and model RRs.  I have too many hobbies.  :facepalm:
I guess I should have been more direct.  There is a member in the Model Car Magazine forum with the same user name as yours.  While they last posted there back in 2020, they have last visited as recently as this Monday. I was wondering if that is you, or someone else?

Cool!  You sure have me beat as far as hobbies go! You are probably never bored.   :) Good to see you on both forums. I connected you to MCM forum because your user name is quite memorable.   :)
