I am new to this forum as well, and could not find the Introductions forum - so I thought I would introduce myself as well here. I am seriously considering getting into model railroading as a hobby. As my moniker states, I am interested in the Civil War. Have been all my life. I am thinking of creating a diorama of a Civil War battlefield that incorporates a railroad. Was on the internet looking to see if any manufacturer created a model of "The General" in N gauge and I came across this forum. Hoping that this new hobby will be a great bonding experience for my children as well. If anyone knows if a N-guage replica of "The General" is made and who makes it, I would really appreciate the help. Thanks all, and looking forward to learning much from you.
