    Hey Just wanted to introduce myself here...looks like another terrific Forum for information.

    I'm working on my 22 X 10 railroad in my basement. Track is laid down, and I'm currently mulling over DC or DCC. In the meantime I am building structures and doing some track painting.

    I look forward to all your wisdom!

    Thanks,

    Welcome to The Gauge, Shaummy. The finest forum around, IMHO. What scale are you in?

    Sorry I guess I left that out! :)

    I model in HO scale and my layout is pretty much a freelance affair. I am using BNSF/ATSF/BN for my road.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Hey Shaummy,
    Glad to have you!! Good sized road you're building, there!
    'Bout six times bigger'n mine (I'm not jealous or nothin'):D :D

    I'm gradually leaning toward DCC even for my small layout....:confused:

    All I gotta say is WOW!

    Glad to see the "family" atmosphere that seems to be lacking on other Forums!

    I appreciate it!
