Hi, my name's Jim and I've been lurking around for the past few days. I'm thinking about getting back into the hobby, and this seems like a great place to learn and share. To make a long story short, my Dad & I had a simple HO layout when I was younger (mid 80's) but all of the pieces were lost/destroyed. Now that I've got my own place I'm trying to figure out if/how I can get back into things. I'm hoping to convince the wife to let me set an actual layout up in the basement once we get around to building it out. Until then she HAS agreed to let me setup a train that runs around the wall/ceiling. I'll be starting some threads with questions about that, but after reading the FAQ it seems I need to find the original links to all of the photo's I've just downloaded and archived. (D'oh) Thanks in advance!
