Good to know.  Do we have to dress up in engineer's overalls and a hat?  For me several months of the year are model railroading months. Then there is the the spring-cleaning month, the summer-vacation month, the leaf-raking month, and snow-shoveling month.  :)

<rant>We as a nation are way too preoccupied with making sure that every month and/or day of the year is some sort of a "day" or "month" for something.  Kind of silly if you ask me. Same if you don't ask me.</rant>

(Stops in tracks, drops head, turns around, quietly tosses funnel cakes in garbage and then slips off hat while disappearing before anyone sees coveralls)

Looks like as good a thread as any to introduce myself. Just dabbling in N for the moment, picking up where I left off about 48 years ago (if it keeps me out of trouble, all the better). I've been dusting off a set of vintage N equipment dating from the late 1960's. I'll be starting from scratch, essentially. Looking forward to tips and wisdom here -- there's some very impressive work. 

BTW, today is National Pasta Day.

What timing!  As it so happens, I really am having pasta for supper tonight!
(Although with a name like "Magliaro", you can well imagine that this is not a rare occurrence in my diet)

There are open house events all month long, many corresponding with the local/regional NMRA divisions.  Our local one seemed to have been turned upside down, with the guy who's been organizing it dropping in lap of someone else with very little information.  I have been on the open house schedule but was not contacted this year.  I reached out and was told I was not forgotten but they had contacted members first.  At the time, they had no other layouts in south central PA ( Adams, Franklin, York, Dauphin, Cumberland counties).  I have not heard back from them yet as to if they had been reached by anyone else or not.

Must be a Pastafarian holiday!  :D

Welcome to the insane asylum Mister "N"!   8)   I would love to see some photos of your vintage N scale.  But unless you host the photos on external site, you will have to wait until you post 25 times before you can upload photos directly to this forum.
