    Hi everyone, I see some familiar names on this forum so I thought I would give it a try. I had went on vacation and when I came home I seen that Atlas was shut down. I stumbled onto the railroad forum but found it very slow, so now I am here and I thought I would give it a try. Glad to be here.
    I little about what I have going on, I am currently building my second (Permanent) layout, HO scale and it will be DCC. I will have the MRC Prodigy system, I am a week or two away from laying track, the layout is 10' x 13' L shaped island style eack leg is 60" wide. I don't model run any particular era, just whatever suits my fancy. Locos are Athearn, LL2K (one) and Hornby.
    Also forgot to mention that I grew up in the UK but now live in the States, so I am partial to the Hornby locos. Cheers Martin

    Welcome Martin, I've been here since the day of the shut down, there is a great bunch of people here and very talented. When you start to go back thru the pages at older threads you will be amazed the modeling you see. -:wave:
