Hi!  I'm Mark.  Member since last spring.  Daily reader, occasional post.  Never had the time to participate in forums until earlier this year - lifestyle change.  I've been in N Scale since 1967.  I was a newlywed then, living in a small apartment and my first layout was a small under-the-bed 3X5 with a separate control panel stashed in the closet (you don't get much elevation with this type of layout).  Some years later, I built a small double-loop layout with some switching in the basement of the house which kept me entertained while I worked my butt off for years.  The first of this year I cut back my workload.  I have a good job and Social Security is sending me a nice monthly check as long as I keep breathing.  It was time to start my last layout.  Over the years I have accumulated enough stuff to keep me busy for a while.  I am a member of N Scale Collectors and Ntrak - although I am not a "factory air" guy, nor do I have a module.  My layout is under way and will be a transition era freelance based on the Virginian Railway with fictional interchanges with some other favorite roads.  I always go to Timonium, last year I went to the Springfield show, and I go to an NSC convention every 2-3 years.  I'll be at the one in Louisville next summer - I didn't go to the convention this year because it was in Boondocks, CT.  I'm a member of a few forums and my opinion is this is by far the best one.

Looks like this forum is hard to beat ... at least now I know why I should get deeper into Photoshop  ;D

Haven't seen Ed's trees in a while, have we? What say you Ed?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Ugh, my trees... I need to get back to work on those.

I've been humping to get the oNeTRAK module done for Timonium.

I'll soon be working on "Summer Trees " for another module I'm doing. Those should be fun too.

I'm Erik.  I've been an occasional poster and regular reader of the Railwire for quite a while.  After about a 20 years hiatus, I returned to modeling and model railroading about 4 years ago.  I've been pleasantly surprised what a healthy amount of patience and detail orientedness has produced as far as my modeling goes.  I like this forum because the modeling is generally better than other forums and I feel like the participants, whatever their modeling level, are always trying to broaden their horizons and push their own envelopes.  I also feel like the critiques of my own modeling by other forumites have been valuable.  As modelers, I respect a lot of you guys.  Your stuff is inspiring and has motivated me to broaden my skills, especially where weathering is concerned.


Here’s a photo my wife took last weekend on the Cumbres & Toltec.  This is me with the prototype 6214. 





Here are a couple of photos of my HOn3 scratch built model.
