    Thanks for the warm welcome. I see some familiar names here from other forums that I frequent. As Shamus asked, here's a little info on myself (I'll keep it brief so as not to put anybody to ZZZZZzzzzzzz's....):

    I model in HO scale, the Missouri Pacific line in central Arkansas during the 1960's, early 1970's. My layout is 11' x 28' (recently added another 3' in length! What's wrong with me?!?), and is a double-track mainline with continuous run. Have some scenery started, all mainline track is laid and most of the yards, except for the industrial area (still contemplating that). I use Digitrax Super Chief DCC and primarily Athearn locos (I like to tinker with them).

    Welcome to the Gauge Eddie! That's a great-looking layout you have there, and the modular scenery is a great idea. Looks like you have a lot of expertise and good ideas to share with everyone here.

    cheers

    Hi Eddie,

    We meet again. :cool:

    There is some great stuff on this forum. Check out the "Academy" for some super how-to information.

    These guys are real encouragers too, not that you need it. ;)

    Later,
