Hi, I am new to this forum. As a way of introduction, I am a retired automotive engineer living in Louisville KY. I have a small HO layout that I have been working on since I was 14 years old (that is when I bought the layout book) and I am sorry to say it is still a long way from being finished. All the track is laid and wired and all works, except I have found that the scenicing is very difficult. (I am an engineer, not an artist). I am also involved in virtual railroading on my computer, which makes it easier to create sceniced layouts. I run RailWorks for the simulation and use 3D Canvas for creating the 3D models. I look forward to participating in this forum as well as using it for a resource for my creations.
