Just following through from the Old Forum. Tell us a little about yourself, like what you model, what era you model, or whatever else you want to say about yourself. Please try not to post anything too personal for example- Hi I'm Joe Mama, I live at 1 Main Street, New York, New York. My phone number is 1-123-234-3456. Keep it Clean.

Hi I'm Alex!
I model the Boston & Maine in HO between the 30's and 50's along with some Modern Equipment, mostly from Massachusetts(MBTA, Guilford). I also model a fictitous Boston & Maine subsidy set in 1950 in G scale.
I live close to Boston and enjoy riding Boston's Commuter Rail Network!

Well, I live in northern VA, in the surburbs of Washington. I model heavy electric operations  in HO with no set era. I'm trying to have an all-electric roster, with no diesels or steam, so far it seems to be working out.

Hi! I'm Jake, I live in southeastern Massachusetts. I'm working on a track plan for a small layout. (Just to observe what kind of havoc a Massachusetts climate will wreak on a model RR, and THEN build a larger, more operational layout.) My layout will be a freelanced representation of  the D&RGW (Denver & Rio Grande Western) RR in HOn3 within a time frame of 1932-1940.

I'm Charlie but my nickname and name known here is Chaz and I live in the United States.  I am 16 years old and a sophomore in high school, and I also help take care of my mom who is diagnosed with lung cancer. I am interested in modeling HO scale, especially Thomas the Tank Engine and I have been interested into model railroading for years, and I always will be for many years to come.  I have two tables that are going to be remodeled into a huge HO scale layout, and I am currently writing plans and ideas for the layout.  Plans will be put to action soon and I will take pictures and post them on the Thomas and Friends section on this board when I do.

     Hey ya'll. My name in Dusten Barefoot. I live out in the sand hills of North Carolina. I model On30 narrow gauge, and have a small layout called the Black River & Southern RR, connected to the Bend Of The River Lumber Co. bassed in the sand hills. The layout is based in the late 1960s and 70s opperating steam only, and illigaly smuggeling moonshine across the SAND HILLS in the dead of the night.
    I am HUGE ET&WNC Railfan and would like to sart a future layout based on ol' Tweetsie.

Hi, I'm kevin and I live in notrh central Alabama. I'm 17 and a senior in high school. I am building a freelanced HO scale layout using the CPLT name (see signature) in the 1985 to 1995-ish time period. I never seem to be happy with the track on a layout for very long and am always trying to get more switching out of a 4x8 and 3x11. I must have changed the layout at least 30 times in the last 5 years.

Thats all I got...for now. Maybe I'll think of some more to say in a little while...

Hi I am Matt. I live in Redding, CA and I model in 1:20.3 (narrow gauge) in G scale. I enjoy it very much. The garden railroad has been ongoing for about 3 years. I am also into HO, but have no layout of my own which is why I joined the Dunsmuir and Cedar Flats Model RR club. I also belong to the Shasta Garden Railroad Society ( and the Shasta Cascade Rail Preservation Society.

Hi, I'm Paul

I model a fictional Branch of the Texas & Pacific during 1955-ish

I'm modeling in HO scale

I run trains from the T&P, MoPac, SP, ATSF and Emhurst & Area, the fictional regional railroad that runs through Emhurst (the city on my layout) and other surrounding towns (Hawk's Point) on the 5x9 foot layout I'm building...

Well, some ofs ya knows me already Shocked

Vic in the smogtopia of Southern California.

Layout: large scale narrow gauge 1/22.5 target scale, was indoors and was outdoors, both small for G, both got destructed to make way for new construction, currently a hobo (no layout), I am working (painfully slooooowly) on a small pizza micro-layout, also large scale, that I was hoping to be ready by next years Big Train Show, and have planned new layouts for both indoors and outdoors.

Era: depression era, southwest USA. Dusty and worn down.

Trains: Small steam and small gas mechanicals. Mostly kitbashed or scratchbuilt,   all R1 capable - however no big engines to get the "bigger is better" crowd all excited.
