    Hello, I just joined the forum and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Raistlin and I have been a model RR-er for about 2 weeks. Recently I went the Winona Peach festival and a gentleman was setup showing his train set, and on a whim I decided I wanted one.

    I have decided to go with HO scale RR.

    I don't have the skill level at making terrain and scenery like some of the folk on here, but I do appreciate you posting the pictures, they are great to look at.

    I am keeping it simple for now, and just enjoying it.

    Thanks for having such a great forum!

    Welcome to "The Gauge". I've not been here much longer than you, although I've been model-railroading for over 50 years. This is a good place to ask questions or just pick up information. I suggest that you also pick up a magazine to browse through: my favourite is Railroad Model Craftsman; Model Railroader is also good and there are many others. Besides lots of neat pictures, there are plenty of how-to articles and loads of ads to show you some of the products available. If you are local to the area of the Peach Festival, there are several good hobby stores within easy driving distance: Niagara Central Hobbies, in St. Catharines; Trains on Brant, in Burlington; and Modeller's Choice, on the Mountain in Hamilton.
