    Just wanted to say Hi to all of you here. I have been lurking for a while and finally decided to join in the fun. I have visited that other forum (you know...the one that is on vacation!) and decided it wasn't for me so here I am. I have a nice sized N Scale layout in my basement that I have named the Pine Valley Railroad, mostly running "East Coast" trains, but I don't really stick to any specific rules. It's DCC and still very much under construction. From what I've read so far, you guys are full of great info and I hope to learn alot from this forum.

    Please take a look at my pics (below) and let me know what you think. Sorry for the vacation pics, there on the same acct.

    I also frequent the Talley forum on a regular basis.

    Sorry for the long post:D

    Welcome Pine Valley! :)

    Fine layout you have! I suppose you built it in the form of 'modules', one section after the other. I think this is a good idea, so you can run trains anytime while you are still building at another section. :cool:

    One problem though - some of the 'webshots' photo series behave strangely - the first one flatly refuses to load :mad:, and the others stop loading pictures after I could look at three or four pics in sequence :(. That's not your mistake for sure, just wanted to tell you...

    Hi there PVRR...

    ...it's great to have another N gauger aboard.

    I'm almost ready- call it 2 months- to resurrect and begin rebuilding a layout.

    In the meantime, I been picking the brains of all the modelers here.

    There's no doubt that you can't lurk too long before you find yourself having something to offer. Glad ya did!

    Regards, welcome aboard,

    Mark

    Thanks to all for the kind words.

    Thanks Interurben for "fixin" it!

    Ron: I noticed that problem with Webshots the other day. But hey...it's free! I did build the layout in modules. and tried to keep things running while I did it. I really can't make it any bigger, so I keep trying to make it better.

    One last thing...Who's dave?

    Welcome to the Gauge. That's a great layout too. Don't mind this old HOer, I love N scale too---I feed it to my 4-8-8-2 Cab-forward and it spits out HOn30:p :D ;)
